Laila Ali is a retired American professional boxer. She is the daughter of retired heavyweight boxing legend Muhammad Ali of his third wife, Veronica Porsche Ali. Laila is the second to last of her father’s nine children and his youngest daughter.
On July 23, 2007, Ali married former NFL player Curtis Conway in Los Angeles. They have two children together, son Curtis Muhammad Conway Jr. (born August 26, 2008) and daughter Sydney Jurldine Conway (born April 4, 2011).
Ali is stepmother to Conway’s three children: twin sons Cameron and Kelton (born 1995) and daughter Leilani (born 1999).
Ali is also credited with saving the life of American Gladiators co-host and wrestling legend Hulk Hogan by telephoning him when he was depressed and suicidal – a call which Hogan (in his book My Life Outside The Ring) claims “snapped me out” of an acute suicidal “trance”.
