Ashley Cain shares light display at Azaylia’s grave to make it ‘magical’ for her

Ashley Cain has revealed an incredible light display at his baby daughter Azaylia's grave – whilst vowing to make it "magical" for her.

The former Coventry City footballer, 30, and his girlfriend Safiyya laid their daughter Azaylia to rest last week after she tragically passed away last month following a battle with cancer.

This comes just after Ashley made an heartbreaking eulogy at Azaylia's funeral – saying that she "saved him" in the powerful and emotional speech. He ended the tribute by singing her favourite Disney song from The Jungle Book.

Azaylia's family have been working to make their little girl's resting place as beautiful as possible.

Taking to Instagram, Ashley shared some his family's hard work in a touching video captured at night time which shows dark, multi-coloured lights glowing around the spot.

You can also see a number of multi-coloured rainbows shining brightly alongside lanterns hanging by the area of Azaylia's grave.

In a heartfelt caption, Ashley wrote to his daughter: "We're making it magical for you baby."

He signed off the touching post with a farewell message which reads: "Goodnight, Princess."

Ashley's partner Safiyya shared a clip of her own, writing to her followers: "The lights are on."

It's been reported that Ashley's family banded together to tidy the area around the grave, which had been filled with old flowers and deflated balloons by supporters.

As well as the lights, the couple has made the plot look even more wonderful after featuring fresh flowers, orange ribbons and stuffed animals on Azaylia's spot.

The family gave Azaylia a truly special send-off at the funeral which featured a horse-drawn carriage to carry Azaylia, and well-wishers even filled the streets to pay their tributes in a public show of respect.

The family had raised over £1 million for her to receive specialist care in Singapore before coming out with the heartbreaking news, with medics finding tumours on her brain and throughout her body.

Azaylia passed away at her home on 24 April, with her parents announcing the news on social media the next day.
