Ashley Cain describes daughter Azaylia’s funeral as ‘hardest day of his life’ in emotional post

ASHLEY Cain has spoken out for the first time following the funeral of his eight month old daughter Azaylia.

The devastated reality star described the day as the ‘hardest of his life’ as he shared a series of previously unseeen pictures from the moving event, which took place on Friday.

In an emotional statement, he told his followers: BEAUTIFUL, STRONG, COURAGEOUS, INSPIRATIONAL, FOREVER IN MY HEART 🧡.

“Friday was by far the most difficult day of my life. Laying to rest my beautiful daughter who had such a huge, positive and powerful impact on not only myself and my family, but the entire world. 💔

“Rest in eternal paradise princess. Daddy loves you forever and always! 👼🏼.”

The daughter of former Coventry City footballer and Ex On The Beach star Ashley and his partner Safiyya Vorajee passed away last month at just eight months old after suffering from an aggressive form of leukaemia.

The funeral saw hundreds of well-wishers line the streets for Azaylia’s funeral in her hometown of Nuneaton, Warwickshire.

Ashley and Safiyya had invited mourners to pay their respects to their daughter on the pre-arranged route of a cortege on Friday morning.

Among floral tributes in a hearse which accompanied a horse-drawn white carriage carrying Azaylia's coffin was one spelling out her name.

Many of those lining the route on Friday applauded as the hearse passed by, and orange ribbons had been tied to nearby railings.

A fundraiser to try to help save Azaylia's life through specialist cancer treatment had reached more than £1.5 million by the time she died.

Buildings and famous sites around the world, including Niagara Falls, were lit up in orange last month in support of Azaylia, and to raise awareness of acute myeloid leukaemia.
