Laila Ali and her husband, former NFL star Curtis Conway, are expecting their first child together, she confirmed to Essence magazine.
“I don’t know yet if we are having a boy or a girl, but I’m excited that I have a life inside me that my husband and I created,” Laila, 30, shared in the May issue, which hits newsstands on April 11th.
The boxing champ, who co-hosts American Gladiators, and Curtis, 37, married last July in the rose garden of the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey, Calif.
Among the 200 guests were Laila’s parents, Muhammad Ali and Veronica Porsche Anderson, along with her sister Hana Ali, who was a bridesmaid.
This is the first child for Laila and the fourth for Curtis, who has twin sons, Kelton and Cameron, 13, and a daughter Leilani, 9.
“I am 100 percent undeniably happy,” Laila told Essence magazine. “I’ve never been able to say that before.”
