    In February, Laila opened up about her pregnancy during an appearance on Access Hollywood Live, revealing how she was managing to avoid extra pregnancy weight.

    "I have to watch what I eat," she said. "I'm a big girl to begin with so I'm walking around like 205 [pounds] right now. Big girl."

    Laila also said her father, boxing legend Muhammad Ali, was a doting grandfather to all of his grandchildren.

    "My dad has 11 grandkids and this will be his 12th — my daughter," she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. "He loves it. My son is the first grandchild that actually looks like him, so he loves it and he has his middle name — little Curtis Muhammad."
