Former boxer and host of American Gladiators Laila Ali and her husband Curtis Conway have welcomed their first child together, a son. Curtis Muhammad Conway arrived on Tuesday, August 26th, weighing in at 6.8 lbs and is 19 inches long. Curtis joins older siblings Cameron and Kelton, 13, as well as Leilani, 9, from Curtis’ previous relationship. A statement from Laila’s rep reads,
"Although mom and baby are both healthy and happy, there were some surprises during labor that altered Laila’s birth plan."
Laila, 30, announced her pregnancy in March by posing on the cover of Essence magazine with her husband. In April, the pair shared that they were expecting a son. In June, Laila revealed her plan for a natural homebirth, imploring other moms-to-be to research all delivery options before making a choice. She also opened up about her and Curtis’ name choice for their baby boy. In August, Laila was the covergirl for the September issue of Pregnancy, posing for a photoshoot and extensive interview.
