When boxing pro and model Laila Ali dropped in to chat with the ladies of the CBS daytime show, The Talk, on Wednesday (March 2), we’re sure that the co-hosts imagined their surprise baby shower for the expectant mom to go a little differently. After being presented with a tiny pair of pink boxing gloves and a matching robe that read “The Cutest of All Time,” Laila’s response to the gifts made for a slightly awkward moment.
“She can look at them,” Ali said with a smile.
Though she’s a staunch advocate for healthy lifestyles and youth sports, Ali says that there will be “no more boxers” in her family. And that goes for her daughter, due in April, and her 2-year-old son, Curtis Jr..
Let’s just hope that her children listen a little better than she did. Apparently, Laila’s father, the legendary Muhammad Ali, tried to talk her out of boxing when she first told him that she wanted to get into the sport!
