Laila Ali says she has “comfort” in knowing her father is “not suffering anymore” … saying she felt Muhammad Ali was “trapped inside of his body” during his battle with Parkinson’s.
Ali spoke with Robin Roberts on ‘GMA’ and said all 9 of Ali’s children flew in to Arizona to be with their dad in his final moments.
Laila says some of her sisters recited Islamic prayers at his bedside — she says it was “a very peaceful time.”
Laila says she’s also grateful her 5-year-old daughter, Sydney, got to spend time with the legend in the years before he passed. She even tells some heartwarming family stories.
