The former Coventry City footballer, 30, and his girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee, 33, have been visiting their baby Azaylia's grave spot since her funeral which took place on May 21.

Taking to Instagram Stories with a powerful message in the darkness on Monday night (31 May), Ashley admitted he will have to "live haunted by the fact my daughter passed away in my arms counting her last breaths".

Earlier in the day he had previously explained how there "isn't a day that you don't feel sad or pain" and said you get "constantly haunted by what's happened".

This comes soon after the couple created a beautiful light display at Azaylia's memorial space, with multi-coloured rainbows and lanterns around the area.

Ashley was fighting back tears as he continued: "When everything in my life felt bad I used to see her face. It made everything better. Now I can never do that again."
