Laila Ali and husband, former NFL player, Curtis Conway revealed 5 week old son Curtis Mohammad Conway Jr, in the new OK Magazine out this week. The first time mom revealed her emotional reaction to giving birth and seeing her son for the first time.
For Laila, who wanted a natural birth, the change in plans was difficult to wrap her mind around. After the complication ended in a hospital admittance for a scheduled induction — “That was hard too, because I didn’t want to be induced” — Curtis Jr. entered the world on August 26th, after a 15-hour labor. “Curtis [Conway] caught him,” Laila notes. “He was able to pull the baby out. He cut the umbilical cord.”
“They gave Curtis Jr. to me. It’s important for the baby to bond with the mother in the first moments. I started crying immediately.”
Comgrats to the happy couple!
