Ashley Cain has spoken out about a terrifying moment he experienced after daughter Azaylia couldn't breathe and suffered seizures.

Last night on 21 April, Ashley and his girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee rushed their daughter back to hospital as she had an issue with her nasogastric tube (or NG tube). They got an X ray to see if the tube was in the right place as Ashley confessed "there is no easy day".

He's since taken to his Instagram stories to provide an update for his 1.5million followers after completing a 5k run, which he explained was to help his mental health.

"Yesterday we got into hospital, got our platelets done and managed to sort her NG tube out, thankfully," he explained.

The doting dad, who recently shared the emotional moment his little one met her baby cousin for the first time, continued: "Then just as we were getting back into the car she had a spike in temperature and a seizure, her eyes were rolling, she was hot, she wasn't breathing.

"We had to get her on the oxygen straight away – she settled then when we got home it happened again and we ended up having a nurse from the palliative care team at our house until 1am."

Ashley continued: "It's difficult, man – there's a lot you don't see, there's a lot you wouldn't want to see.

"It's 24 hours a day, seven days a week with no breaks, but it's all worth it because guess what? She woke up again this morning.

"All the hard work we're putting in now, it's worth it in the end to get that little smile, her eyes opening – it's amazing."

The reality star's eight month old daughter has been battling leukaemia for the majority of her life and her parents were recently told by doctors that the disease spread to her brain and she could have just "days to live".

Looking back on the difficult journey they've been through so far, Ashley said: "It's been months, but the last few days especially I've woken up feeling pain, stress, depression, that's been consuming my mind as well as my body – stopping me from doing the things that were second nature to me, and I don't like it.

"I'm going to get up, get out, and get at it – getting out today in the hope that when I walk back in my house, I'm going to be the best me that I can be for my daughter."
