You can’t take away my dreams. I will conquer all. I will win. I am strong…I am righteous. I am powerful,” he said in a moving video, taking on a mantra for his baby who was bundled up in a white blanket. “I will grow. I will defeat you. I will succeed. I am a fighter. I promise to fight.

Ashley and Safiyya welcomed little Azaylia on Aug. 10. “There is no words to describe this feeling. But she has opened new doors to my life and my heart,” he wrote in an announcement, confirming she weighed 7 lbs. and 10 oz and entered the world at 6:56 a.m. “I could literally look at her all day and hold her till my arms give in. But mainly I will always be there for her as her daddy, her friend and her confidant! Daddy loves you baby, you’ve changed my life!” he gushed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ashley, Safiyya and Azaylia.
