Laila Ali’s baby daughter is here, and we’ve finally got some pics. Born April 4, baby Sydney joins her big brother CJ, 2½. When Laila and her husband, former NFL star Curtis Conway, decided to have a second child, she thought she wanted another boy, but now she’s glad she was blessed otherwise.
“Before I got pregnant with Sydney I started paying attention to girls with their moms and I thought, ‘Oh, I want a girl.’ They are like a little mini me.”
The mother and daughter have already established a girls-only ritual.
“Because I get up so much with her, we are sleeping in a separate room. My favorite time is the evening when CJ goes to sleep and I have her in the room and it’s quiet. We have our quiet moment together.”
And Laila can’t wait to teacher her daughter: “How to cook and how to be a lady” and “how to be strong but still be feminine and confident.”
