    Former Ex on the Beach contestant Ashley Cain has announced he's set to become a dad again.

    The reality TV star, 33, tragically lost his daughter Azaliya Diamond Cain at the age of just eight months old to terminal cancer two years ago. In a new interview, Ashley says his little girl in heaven was the first person to know about the new addition to their family.

    He broke down in tears when he shared the news as he spoke of visiting his daughter's grave to tell her that she was going to be a big sister to a baby brother. Sharing the news with The Sun, "After going to her resting place and speaking to her about it, I just had a feeling in my heart and in my soul that she was happy for me. She was happy that she had a little brother and it is now just someone else for her to watch over and protect in this world."

    In July, Ashley had been preparing to take on the world's toughest survival endurance race from Canada, through the Arctic circle, to Alaska when he got a message from a friend, who he had been seeing at the time. Ashley revealed in the interview that he met up with his pal and she told him she was pregnant.

    He admitted that :potentially having another child after losing one was very difficult to understand" for but the Yurok challenge gave him time to understand that "every child that comes into this world is a blessing." Ashley also said it was important for him to find out the sex of their baby ahead of their due date next month. In 2020, Ashley and his ex Safiyya Vorajee were devastated when their little girl Azaylia was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia at eight weeks.
