A glowing Laila Ali took some out from her busy day to grab lunch with husband Curtis Conway in Calabasas, Calif. on Friday (March 18). The couple is looking forward to welcoming a baby girl in April that will join their 2-year-old son, Curtis Jr. at home.
Despite the fact that Laila, who is the daughter of legendary Muhammad Ali, has said emphatically that there will be “no more boxers” in her family, she recently recounted the defining moment when she herself decided to follow her famous father into the ring.
“When I saw women’s boxing on television for the first time. I was so in awe because I didn’t know women even boxed,” she recalls. “And with my dad being the most famous boxer in the world, how did I not know that women could actually fight? And form that moment I knew I wanted to do it. I was so in awe because I didn’t even know women even boxed.”
