As Eddie Ray Routh, 26, begins his life sentence for the murders of Littlefield, 35, and Kyle, 38, who he shot in February 2012, Daily Mail Online can reveal that Leanne Littlefield has remarried and that she and new husband, Texas Ranger Jason Bobo, welcomed their first child, a son, Alex, just last month.

Speaking to Daily Mail Online Leanne’s father, retired firefighter Thomas Montgomery told of the family’s gratitude at his daughter’s second chance at happiness after such devastation, describing her new life as ‘a blessing.’
