Ashley Cain’s girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee has vowed to have a tattoo of her baby daughter Azaylia's hand and foot prints, so that she can "always have her so close".

The 34-year-old and former Ex on the Beach star Ashley, 30, have been sharing their eight-month-old daughter's courageous battle with leukaemia.

Doctors have told the couple that their little one now has blood clots on her brain and had said that she may only have days to live.

This was more than 10 days ago and Azaylia is still battling despite being turned down for treatment in Singapore, after it was deemed that her condition is too rare.

She is now spending time with her parents at home and Safiyya said that they have plaster cast prints done of their daughter's hands and feet.

Speaking on her Instagram Story on Monday, Safiyya said that they were worried about breaking the plaster casts, so has been able to sort out a more permanent tribute to their baby.

She said: "We've got her handprints and footprints and I was just worried because what if I dropped one - what about if this happened, what about if that happened.

"The lady was really good and did these prints so that I can get a tattoo, so I can always have her so close.

"So I decided to get the prints done and I am going to get a tattoo done of her little hands and her feet."

Fighting back tears, Safiyya's emotions started running high as she continued: "This stuff is so hard and difficult but I just got to make every day as happy and as full and playful as possible for her."

This came after she opened up about watching Azaylia's battle and that the situation "feels like torture".

Azaylia was diagnosed with the deadly condition when she was just eight weeks old and has spent much of her life in and out of hospital.

She recently came home, but was rushed back in last night to undergo an emergency transfusion after suffering nose bleeds.

Despite going through a difficult time, Safiyya vowed to be optimistic and be as happy as possible for her little girl.

"I just wake up in the morning and look at her and feel so blessed that every single morning I'm waking up with her and having her there to hold and to smile and to sing all our Jungle Book theme all day long," she told her followers.

"The amount of times we sing this to her is just mind-blowing and I feel so happy that I can just spend today with her and play and just love her as much as I can and tell her how much I love her.

"It's absolutely heartbreaking, this feels like torture. It's so difficult and so hard and the support you guys are all giving us is amazing, it's incredible."
