Ashley Cain paid a heartbreaking Instagram tribute to his late daughter Azaylia on his first father’s day.
The grieving star, 30, shared a video of himself and Azaylia in the hospital alongside a long message.
Ashley also posted a video of him sitting in the car crying.
He filmed it while listening to Michael Bolton’s Go The Distance, which includes the text: “I will search the world, I will accept its damage until I find my heroes welcome, in your arms.”
Ashley Cain can’t sleep
Ashley admitted to fans that he couldn’t sleep last night (June 19, 2021).
He told his Instagram followers: “I scrolled through some photos and videos for hours because I couldn’t sleep with today …
“One of the things I miss most about Azaylia is our overnight stays in the hospital.
“The feeling when I woke up next to her in the morning, pulled the blinds and saw her beautiful face with that incredible smile, was magical.
“The fact that I was given another day with the love of my life, on which no day was promised, was euphoric and indescribable.”
What did Ashley say?
Ashley continued, “Despite everything Azaylia went through, she ALWAYS greeted me with the most overwhelming energy and a stunning smile that gave me all the strength and courage I needed to put my mind, heart and soul through one to strengthen her side for another day. “
He went on to explain how if he could choose eight months for discharge, this would be her life.
“Azaylia made the toughest, most devastating time any parent could go through, without question, the BEST days of my life!” He said.
Even if my heart is irreparably broken, I feel incredibly blessed to be your daddy …
“A time when I would give up my remaining years in a split second to relive them with her.”
Ashley ended his heartbreaking post by saying, “Azaylia Diamond Cain – You are the greatest daughter a daddy could ask for and I miss you so much.
“Even though my heart is irreparably broken, I feel incredibly blessed to be your daddy and HONORED to be lucky enough to be able to call you my daughter.
“You changed my life, you saved my life and you MADE my life. I LOVE YOU CHAMP – MY HERO #AzayliaDiamondCain #FathersDay #DaddysGirl. “
Azaylia’s brave fight
Azaylia was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of leukemia at eight weeks of age.
She tragically died of the disease in April at the age of eight months.
Ashley’s partner and Azaylia’s mother, Safiyya Vorajee, also signed up on social media for Father’s Day.
She shared a picture of Ashley wearing a pair of socks that read “King Of The Dads”.
Safiyya also wrote on Instagram: “I’m so proud of you Ashley, you were and still are a beautiful dad to Azaylia!
“Your bond is still so beautiful that every day you are proud to have a dad like you.”
She added, “She is watching from heaven, proud to point out that you say this is my daddy !!! With such a beautiful smile on his face.
“We’re going to do something special for you today. They will one day spend eternity together in paradise.
“Until then, Azaylia will wrap around you so tightly every day. Happy Father’s Day, baby, I love you. “
