Ashley Cain has optimistically revealed he has a "crazy belief" that his baby daughter Azaylia will still live for weeks to come.

The 30 year old welcomed his first child with girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee, 34, in August 2020, but she was devastatingly diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia just eight weeks after her birth.

Azaylia's case took an even more heartbreaking turn earlier this month when the parents were told she could have only "days to live" as the cancer spread.

Despite doctor's warnings, former Ex On The Beach star Ashley has now admitted he thinks Azaylia will still be alive for weeks.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote to his 1.5million followers: "We've had another very tough day today. To be honest, every single day is a very tough day.

"We don't take Azaylia out of our site for a single second at the moment, caring for her every need [sic].

"Today was the first time for days that she has been able to open her eyes. The swelling and the blood in her tears is causing her pain and forcing them to stick and shut.

"But with relentless care and improvisation we've managed to help her see the world again. Even though she doesn't have much energy, she loved to see her surroundings today and had the loveliest little play time. We even got a smile which was worth more than anything money can buy."

He continued: "As a parent it's the hardest thing in the world to see your child like this, at home with the painful inevitable fait pending [sic].

"For some insane reason though, I still have some crazy belief that she will still be with us next week, the week after that and the week after that.

"But we aren't counting the days right now, we're just doing our best to make those days count," Ashley finished in his touching post.

"From Wembley Stadium to the Niagara Falls lighting up orange as a testament of her bravery, the awareness she has raised for childhood cancer and all the children and families she has helped through her struggles already.

"Right now I feel broken, scared and worried all of the time. But I am finding strength in trying to be the best father I can be, no matter the situation, for her.

"That is the least she deserves and the most I can give her, the best me I can be. There is one thing for certain though, I couldn’t be a prouder dad and a more blessed human to have such an incredible daughter."
