Perth influencer Lauren Curtis has shared the heartbreaking news of fiancé Recce Daniel’s worsening liver disease.

The 31-year-old lifestyle guru took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal disturbing details about the former footballer’s deteriorating health.

Answering a series of fan questions in a Q&A, she said her partner suffers from ulcerative colitis (UC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).

UC is a chronic intestinal disease that usually affects people who also have the chronic liver disease PSC.

“His liver disease is getting worse, so he doesn’t have as much energy as he used to exercise,” Lauren told her followers when they asked about Reece’s condition.

“But he still stays in good shape thanks to work and the things he does at home,” she added.

“He is in a period of limbo where he is not sick enough for a liver transplant, but he is sick enough that a transplant will likely happen soon.”

Lauren added that while Reece’s UC is “in remission”, he had a terrible flare-up from PSC last year and his liver is currently deteriorating due to scarring.

And while Reece has bravely coped with his ill health over the past ten years, Lauren confessed that she is struggling to cope.

“It’s been really hard, but I don’t like to complain because I’m not the one who’s sick,” she told one follower who asked how she was coping.

“I think about his illness more often than he does. Just last night he had a fever and I lay in bed trying to distract myself from my thoughts.

Lauren and Reece started dating in 2014, and while it’s unclear when they got engaged, the couple built a house together in southwest Washington state in 2023.

The beauty blogger has previously been very open about her desire not to have children.

In a 2021 YouTube post, she wrote that the “most important thing” she and Reece enjoy is the freedom to do what they want and focus on themselves.

In the video, Lauren said that Reece has a huge family but is only happy because he is an uncle, while Lauren only wants to put herself before starting a family.
