A PROUD MOTHER
"Moms, BE the woman you want [your] daughter to grow up to be."
She went on to say that young girls are always watching and listening to their moms. Girls, she added, see how their moms treat others and allow others to treat them.
FANS ADORED HER DAUGHTER
Young daughters, she continued, observe how their moms speak about others and allow others to talk about them. She said fathers should do the same to their boys.
The heartfelt post quickly amassed more than 36,000 likes, with fans flooding the comments section with kind messages. One fan gushed over Sydney, writing, "She is so beautiful."
Back in 2015, she said that family always comes first for her.
In the photo, the mother-daughter duo looked ravishing as they posed for the camera, with beautiful ornament plants in the background.
Laila put one hand on Sydney's shoulder and placed her other hand on the young girl's arm. Sydney looked modelesque as she put one hand on the side of her waist. They both let their hair fall on their shoulders.
Laila, who is one of boxing legend Muhammad Ali's nine children, is a hands-on mom who is able to juggle her career with motherhood. Back in 2015, she said that family always comes first for her.
RAISING SOCIALLY-CONSCIOUS KIDS
Laila chose not to hire full-time nannies, chauffeurs, and cooks, although she could very well afford to hire them. Laila said it is important for her to be a part of every step of their children's lives.
She is also raising her children to become socially conscious like her father, who was known for his humanitarian work. The mother of two has been working with Feeding America.
The boxing legend has inculcated in Laila the value of hard work. Although they lived a comfortable life, Laila learned to become financially independent at a young age.
When she was 12, she made money by starting a neighborhood cleaning business. At 15, she worked at a local burger shop during the summer in Michigan.
