“I think that when you have a child, as a parent, you can be slightly biased, but I think it is safe to say, on behalf of myself, my partner, to my friends and family and the whole world who have followed our story, that my daughter, Azaylia Diamond Cain was special.

“Beautiful, strong, courageous and so, so inspirational. I don’t think that a single person in this room can say they are too wise, too educated or experienced to have learned something from my likkle lion.

“From the second she came into my life everything changed.

“She changed my life, she saved my life and she made my life,” he said.

Azaylia ‘allowed me to love’

Ashley added: “Having a little girl for me was a chance to really, really show the true person that I am.

“She allowed me to love, she allowed me to kiss and snuggle and dance, she allowed me to do everything I wanted to do.”

Tragically, Azaylia was just eight months old when she died.
