Laila Ali - 2 1/2 weeks old

While in Miami Beach, Florida, Veronica and Muhammad gave birth to their second daughter Laila. I asked to make pictures of his newborn daughter who was just two and a half weeks old. He agreed and we went to their apartment where he lay on the floor and held his child in his hands for this rare, tender moment of father and daughter. - from THE CHAMP by Michael Gaffney
