Personal Life

At about 11 years old, Harris was diagnosed with scoliosis. The condition progressed severely into her teen years, and it eventually necessitated a spinal fusion. It took her a month to recover fully, and she had to learn how to walk again.Also as a teenager, Harris developed adenomyosis, a condition that causes a thickening of the uterus, thereby causing great period pain. At school, she would collapse and be in pain from getting her period. In order to help with the condition, she was a vegetarian for a while, which eliminated most of the symptoms, but the diet caused her to have anaemia and low energy. Now, rather than being completely vegetarian, the majority of her diet is plant-based.Harris has never married and has no children. Since 2012, Harris has been in a relationship with Peter Legler.
