Ashley Cain's 'scared' for Azaylia but says 'she's still in the game' as he reveals garden pod so they can look at stars

ASHLEY Cain has said that he is "scared" for baby daughter Azaylia but she's "still in the game" as he showed off the garden pod he and girlfriend Safiyya have set up so they can look at the stars together as a family.

The 30-year-old ex footballer looked emotional as he opened up about his feelings after receiving the heartbreaking news that eight-month-old Azaylia's leukaemia can no longer be treated last month.

Filming on Instagram from the see-through, igloo construction in his back garden, Ashley thanked everybody for the love and support that they have sent to his little girl.

He shared: "I'm just sitting outside in the pod that we got for Azaylia so we can sit outside at night time and look up at the stars with her, she's asleep at the minute and right now it's too hot for her in here as she's spiking in temperature and needs to cool down.

"I just wanted to say, I'm overwhelmed and grateful for all of the love and support and tributes that are going out for my daughter – it's absolutely incredible.

"Truthfully though, I can't really put into words how I'm feeling – I'm scared, I'm worried, I'm nervous, I'm anxious, all of the time.



"But I'm getting my strength from being the best me I can be for my daughter right now and currently she's still here, she's still breathing, and she's still in the game."

Ashley signed off: "Let's go champ, thank you guys."

Earlier today, the worried parents took to their Instagram pages to share a stunning plane display that was put on above their house for Azaylia.

They were overwhelmed by the special treat, and have also covered their garden pod with fairylights and balloons to enjoy once it gets darker this evening.



Safiyya also revealed that she'd covered Azaylia's eyes with a cold compress as her kidneys aren't able to drain fluid from her body.

Yesterday, the brave mum told how her daughter was struggling to open her eyes due to the severe swelling, and that she'd sought advice from her community nurses.

Safiyya and Ashley welcomed Azaylia in August of last year, but were left devastated just eight weeks later when they were told that she has leukaemia.

They have documented much of her fight on their Instagram pages, and told how they hope to make their little girl's time with them as full of fun, love, and happiness as possible.


Earlier this week, Safiyya revealed that "struggling" Azaylia is now on oxygen at home after she was rushed to hospital again.

She previously told how Azaylia has lost movement in half of her face due to tumours on her brain.

Last month, Ashley and Safiyya raised over £1 million to take Azaylia to Singapore in a last-ditch attempt to save her life – but were left devastated when they were told the specialists in the country could not help.

Doctors in the UK then discovered tumours throughout Azaylia's body, including her brain and spleen, and delivered the heartbreaking news that they'd run out of options to treat her.

The brave parents have now taken their little girl home from hospital, but still have regular trips back into A&E to keep Azaylia comfortable, with the eight month old having blood transfusions after crying blood, and bleeding from her nose.

Safiyya has also revealed purple bruises all over Azaylia's body as the leukaemia prevents her blood from clotting.

Through her brave fight, Azaylia has won the hearts of the nation, and has been nominated for a Pride of Britain award – with people across the UK also taking to their doorsteps to "Clap for Azaylia" earlier this week.
