Ashley Cain has emotionally said "we fight and pray for another day" as he shared a tender video of his baby daughter Azaylia sleeping.

The 30-year-old and his girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee 34, welcomed their first child together in August 2020. But just eight weeks later, she was devastatingly diagnosed with leukemia.

Last week, the pair heartbreakingly announced the tot — who celebrated her eight-month 'birthday' over the weekend — could have just "days to live" after test results showed the disease had spread.

Former Ex On The Beach star Ashley has now shared an emotional video of Azaylia peacefully sleeping as he prayed for another day with his daughter.

Posting the video to his 1.2million Instagram followers, he wrote: "We fight and we pray for another day #LetsGoChamp".


He added: "I LOVE YOU" to his emotional post, which was shared hours after he updated fans on the loss of movement in Azaylia's face.

Once again taking to Instagram, he said: "She's losing some movement on one side of her face as a result of the tumours but she's still the most beautiful little girl."

Safiyya added to her own 661,000 followers on the social media platform: "Azalyia was experiencing nosebleeds yesterday and that's down to the blood and the platelets in the body that are not being able to clot the blood so it's just bleeding through her nose.

"So about 11 o'clock last night we decided to go to the hospital and get a platelet transfusion for her.

"Unfortunately overnight, she's still experienced the nosebleeds and the clotting hasn't happened."

She later shared an image of her daughter asleep, with a purple bruise seen forming on her leg.

Posting a medical explanation as to why Azaylia was suffering from bruises, Safiyya explained: "Leukemia can disrupt the body's production of platelets, which normally form blood clots to stop bleeding."

She added a quote from medicine physician Amy Forrestel, which read: "When platelets become low, patients often bleed into the skin spontaneously or with minimal trauma."
