‘No More Boxers’ For Laila Ali!

'No More Boxers' For Laila Ali!

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!

    Way to be less than grateful for what was obviously meant as a cute, light-hearted gift. How full of herself is she?

    On another note, I love when parents dictate what their children will and won’t be allowed to as ADULTS, when they’re still kids. Keep living in dream land people, but those cute kids will grow up, and guess what? They’ll make their own decisions.

    When somebody gives you a gift,no matter what it is, you have to be gracious and smile and accept and not make such a rude comment. she may really not want her kids to go into boxing, but that is no excuse for her to bring that up in the form of saying ” well they can look at it”. that is just plain down rude. she should have been thankful that she got the surprise baby shower.

    It’s so funny that she rebelled against her parents but thinks she can control hers.
