Ashley Cain shared a heartbreaking update as he revealed daughter Azaylia’s leukaemia had returned.
The Ex On The Beach star’s little one – who he shares with girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee – was recently diagnosed with a ‘rare and aggressive’ form of cancer known as AML (acute myeloid leukaemia).
After spending time in hospital, the five-month-old was due to return home as an outpatient.
However, revealing her progress in a lengthy Instagram caption, Ashley explained that her condition had sadly returned.
Alongside a video of the parents holding their newborn, the 30-year-old penned: ‘Azaylia Rings The Bell. Today was supposed to be a day of unquestionable happiness. However, it turned out like most days on this journey; A miracle blindsided by heartbreak!
‘We got told a few days ago that Azaylia would be ringing the bell today and coming home with us, as a family to resume treatment 2 days per week as an outpatient.
‘However, 10 minutes before the moment we have been praying for over the last 5 months… We got urgently informed that Azaylia’s leukaemia had returned.
‘We crumbled and cancelled the celebration as we felt broken and numb to the core before seeing her beautiful face telling us, the show must go on and us then realising how far our little girl has come and how much she deserves this moment.
‘She has battled against the odds, she has overcome every obstacle in her path and she has done it all with remarkable spirit and the biggest smile on her face!’
He added: ‘For now we are enjoying precious moments at home until we return to hospital on Friday! Thank you for your support and please keep our beautiful daughter in your prayers!’
Fans and famous pals flocked to the comments to share their support for Ashley and the family.
Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips replied: ‘Praying for you all, always.’
Josh Denzel commented: ‘Prayers go out to you and your family.’
Nathan Massey said: ‘Prayers go to you and the family and your strong fighting little princess! We’re all behind you.’
Jamie Jewitt posted: ‘Stay strong guys you got this.’
As Towie’s Georgia Kousoulou added: ‘Praying for you all, beautiful princess.’
Ashley and his partner Safiyya welcomed Azaylia last August, and he discussed her diagnosis two months later.
‘Yesterday I had to go through something no parent in the world should have to go through,’ he posted at the time. ‘The single most upsetting, terrifying and heartbreaking experience I have ever been through.
‘I found out my beautiful daughter Azaylia Diamond Cain got diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of leukaemia which has come with many complications.
‘Everybody who wishes to, please say a prayer for my beautiful brave little girl Azaylia who is currently fighting a battle for her life!
‘Mummy and Daddy love you princess. LETS GO CHAMP. You CAN and you WILL beat this!’
