Chezzi Denyer, the wife of Family Feud host Grant, opened up about their daughter’s surprise medical diagnosis this week in a touching post shared on social media.

The mother-of-two, who is pregnant with the couple’s third child, revealed that eldest daughter Sailor, eight, was recently diagnosed with Inattentive ADHD. Symptoms of the inattentive form of ADHD include: missing details and becoming distracted easily, trouble focusing on the task at hand and becoming bored quickly.

“Little Sailor D, couldn’t have been more proud of you this weekend,” Chezzi wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “Not because you tried really hard. Not because you practiced so much. Not even because you won the 9 years Champion.”

“But because this year after discovering you have Inattentive ADHD and as a family making some big adjustments to help you more with this, your understanding of yourself and the pride you took in overcoming your fears gave you so much more confidence up on the stage.”

She added: “I’m always proud of you, but I’m so much more in awe of you after this weekend. And a special mention to Kristie from Encore Speech & Drama for your brilliant guidance over the years. Thank you.”

Grant and Chezzi, who are also parents to four-year-old Scout, announced that they were expecting their third child last month. The couple shared an adorable video of their two daughters announcing the exciting news on Instagram on Tuesday night.

“We have some exciting news… Coming 1st March 2021!” Grant and Chezzi both captioned the video.

“So, we have some news,” their daughter Sailor explained. “Our mum is pregnant! And mum’s really sick. And she’s been resting for days. So that’s our news and it’s so exciting that she’s got a baby.”
