Leigh Anne Tuohy is the host of GMC's reality series "Family Addition with Leigh Anne Tuohy."

Dubbed a "warrior princess" by author Michael Lewis in his best-selling book "The Blind Side," Leigh Anne is the inspirational matriarch of the Tuohy family. A Memphis, Tennessee native, Leigh Anne attended Briarcrest Christian School and went on to graduate from the University of Mississippi, "Ole Miss," with a Bachelor's of Science in Interior Design. There Leigh Anne met her husband Sean Tuohy. Both were active and ambitious college students. She was a cheerleader, campus favorite, homecoming maid and active member of her sorority.

Leigh Anne owns Flair I, an interior design firm with her mother and partner, Virginia Roberts. Her work has been featured on HGTV, in numerous publications, and she has designed for such clients as Peyton Manning, Scottie Pippin, Isaac Bruce and OJ Mayo. Leigh Anne also joined the design team for Season 8 of ABC's Emmy Award-winning series "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

The Tuohy family is actively involved in many civic and faith-based organizations, including Grace Evangelical Church, of which they are founding members. With "The Blind Side" as one of the most talked-about true stories of our time, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy are now sharing the story in their own words in their book, "In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving" (Henry Holt and Co.).

Leigh Anne inspires audiences through her public speaking to recognize the full potential of individuals in their community — and to find value in those who society has deemed valueless. She shares her personal "Blind Side" observations, from seeing Michael Oher for the first time to how the experience changed her as a person — and the Tuohys as a family.
