Laila Ali's Baby Boy...
Curtis Muhammad Conway Jr was born 8/26/08 to Boxer Laila Ali and her husband Curtis Conway. Laila experienced some complications during her pregnancy and had to be induced at 39 weeks.
“The doctor thought that the baby might have a growth restriction. [During checkups] they measure the baby’s head, his abdomen and his legs. Sometimes, when the baby is not getting enough nutrients, the abdomen will be smaller because the organs aren’t really needed yet, but the head and legs will keep growing. When I got to 39 weeks, they said, 'I think we should go ahead and take the baby out,' because he wasn’t getting 100 percent of his nutrients. That was hard, too, because I didn’t want to be induced. You can plan all you want, but things happen!”
Congrats to the couple!!
