The Bristol beauty – who would become the mother of his first child Azaylia Diamond – wasn’t excited by fame when Ex On The Beach favourite Ashley made a play for her over four years ago.
Yet the charismatic reality star and ex Coventry City footballer worked his charms on Safiyaa and the couple embarked on a secret romance that lasted for months – all whilst his new girlfriend, an aesthetic practitioner, focused on building her beauty brand Mz Pretty.
In 2018, the budding entrepreneur agreed to go public with Ashley – whose exes included Celebrity Big Brother’s Chloe Khan and Jemma Lucy.
They finally shared their first Instagram snaps together. Ashley said about Safiyaa in one post: “Lift your loved ones high”.

Their flourishing romance coincided with Ashley taking a step back from reality shows and building his fitness company The Beast as the couple supported each other’s careers.
Since then the pair have been absolutely besotted with each other and their unmistakable chemistry has spilled out onto social media, with the lovebirds melting hearts sharing photos from their romantic holidays and date nights.
Three years later, and baby Azaylia Diamond was welcomed into the world on a wave of love.
“There is no words to describe this feeling. She has opened new doors to my life and my heart. I could literally look at her all day and hold her till my arms give in.
“But mainly I will always be there for her as her daddy, her friend and her confidant! Daddy loves you baby, you’ve changed my life!”
After her birth the pair were learning to be mum and dad, and would only share the odd gushing post about life with their tot.

Then on October 9th Ashley announced the devastating news that their baby Azaylia had been diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of leukaemia, asking fans to pray for his daughter.
Following two rounds of chemotherapy Azaylia struggled to beat her illness, with Ashley and Safiyya setting up a Go Fund Me page in the hopes of flying Azaylia to Singapore for life-saving CAR-T therapy plus a haplo transplant.
The online fundraiser quickly went viral with fans from around the world reaching out to the pair – including The Rock.
The fundraiser incredibly reached over £1million in just one day, exceeding their expectations – but weeks later they were told doctors in Singapore couldn’t treat Azaylia.
Brave Safiyya admitted the days are “tough” but the couple feel “blessed” every morning that they get to wake up to Azaylia’s face again.
