Ashely Cain has opened up about the ‘painful’ conversation with ex Safiyya Vorajee as he told her he’s becoming a dad again.

Reality star and former footballer Ashley, 33, split from girlfriend Safiyya, 35, last year, saying at the time it was an ‘incredibly tough’ decision.

The pair said they would forever be ‘bonded’ after the loss of their daughter Azaylia, who passed away the year before after being diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer when she was just eight weeks old.

"After a devastating and heartbreaking year, Safiyya and I decided to separate a few months ago,” Ashley said.

“This was an incredibly tough decision which we needed to keep to ourselves for some time to give us the opportunity to figure out our own journey privately.”

Ashley has now announced that he’s going to become a dad again, saying the first thing he did when he found out was to visit Azaylia’s grave to tell her the happy news.

Speaking to The Sun, he explained: “I believe that was a huge part that has allowed me to feel positive about it. I feel like she was the main person that I needed to speak to and to get this thing off my chest.

“After going to her resting place and speaking to her about it, I just had a feeling in my heart and in my soul that she was happy for me.”

Ashley said he also made sure he told Safiyya, who understandably found the news difficult but ultimately had nothing but ‘respect’ for him.

“It was painful for Safiyya but it was also painful for me as well to talk to her,” he said.

“We haven’t been together for a while now and it is inevitable that at some stage people are going to move on with their lives - that doesn’t mean that we can’t be friends and have an amazing relationship.

“I know Safiyya will always support me and I will always be there to support Safiyya. It wasn’t an easy conversation or filled with smiles but it was a conversation that had a lot of truth and respect.”

Ashley is over the moon to be expecting a baby boy with his current partner, but said the pregnancy hasn’t been plain sailing as they found out at 20 weeks that their unborn child has a potential heart defect.

“He has got to go for a scan as soon as he is born to make sure and double check,” he added.

“I am saying my prayers, believing positive things and getting myself in the right mindframe either way to be there for her and my son.”
