Laila Ali, former DWTS alum, and currently six months pregnant, had another contender to reckon with at the finale! Her unborn son. Laila tells People Magazine, that her son was “kicking like crazy” during the show.
“We’re going to name him Curtis Muhammad. This boy is going to be an athlete, definitely,” a glowing Ali said. “I’m so blessed to be having such a smooth pregnancy. No cravings, no sickness. I don’t feel pregnant other than I’m getting bigger.”
Laila explained that she will continue to work and co-host the second season of American Gladiators, after the birth, thanks in part to her husband. Laila and her husband, former NFL star Curtis Conway expect their first child together in September.
“Curtis has been helping me out a lot when I’ve been working. He’s retired so he’s picked up a lot of the slack at home. He’s going to be excellent when the baby comes,” Ali said. “I’ll go to the show and he can watch the baby in the trailer while I work. I can check in with them in between shooting. It will be good.”
