Max Whitlock’s 14-year-old childhood best friend is Leah Hickton from Basildon, Essex. The blonde beauty, like Max, is a gymnast who used to be the head coach at Basildon’s South Essex Gymnastics Club.
They met at their local children’s gym when they were both 12 years old, but it wasn’t until two years later that Max summoned the nerve to ask her out, and they’ve been in love ever since. Max planned a surprise trip to the Lake District in 2016 when he proposed to his boyfriend over a romantic picnic.
The adorable couple married in a stunning ceremony surrounded by their friends and family in 2017, and Leah gave birth to their beautiful little girl, Willow, two years later.
The gymnastics coach is also the co-founder of Max Whitlock Gymnastics, a Colchester and Southend-based gymnastics club that teaches the sport to children and boys aged three to eleven.
Leah and Max are still madly in love after more than a decade together.
