Former Boxer Laila Ali and her husband, former NFL player Curtis Conway, recently sat down with People Magazine to talk about how their one-year-old son has changed their lives
On how their relationship has changed:
Laila: Our relationship now is so different. We used to enjoy going to the movies and dinner, but now, having the baby, it’s easy to forget to take time for yourself.
Curtis: We can’t just get up and go. Our time outside of the house really has to be planned.
Laila: But we’re not missing anything. The only problem is, I’m tired all the time. So as soon as I get free time, I want to go to sleep.
Getting to know Curtis Jr.:
Curtis: Laila is very attentive to him. He has a certain whine for one thing, a certain cry for another. She automatically picks up on what it is.
Laila: He is very feisty, and he knows what he wants. You don’t have to guess with him.
Curtis: I love getting on the floor with him. I love him slobbering over me. We wrestle.
Laila on wanting more kids:
Laila: I definitely want more kids. But I’m going to wait until my son is about 3 — so he can get me a diaper when I need one! When you have a child and commit to raising that child together, then there is nothing stronger than that.
