"She Strives"

Alexis Sky can take what Internet trolls say about her. It’s when the online critics talk about her 2-year-old daughter, Alaiya, that things get personal.

“These people that I don’t even know on these [social media] pages say the most hateful things about Alaiya [and] me,” Alexis tells Jason Lee of Hollywood Unlocked. “And it’s more so about Alaiya that bothers me,” the celebrity mom says.


“F*ck what you say about me. People call me a h*e, a b*tch, slut … I could care less. You can call me all those things in the book. I’m Alexis and I am who I am. But when you speak about my child, it just hits me differently.”

Alaiya was born three months early in January 2018. The youngster was later diagnosed with hydrocephalus and underwent surgery for the condition shortly after her first birthday.

“She definitely is [a miracle baby] and she strives,” Sky tells Jason Lee. “And that’s why you see me going harder and harder. She doesn’t give up. She’s not sitting here not walking [and] not talking. She’s trying her best.”

Many fans fell in love with Alaiya a few weeks back when the youngster helped her mom apply makeup. Alaiya was so focused on the makeup session that she did not want to move on to combing her mom’s hair.

Alexis Sky has the support of family members and friends while rearing her daughter. The Love and Hip Hop: Altanta (LHHATL) star’s ex-boyfriend, Fetty Wap, is a strong presence in Alaiya’s life.

“We’re actually really good friends,” Alexis says of her relationship with Fetty Wap. “He’ll check on me. I’ll check on him. [He’ll ask], ‘How’s Alaiya?’ And that’s just really it. I don’t know about his personal life, but I just wish him the best and that’s it.”

Alexis is the proud mother of one child right now. The celebrity, however, hopes to have at least one more child in the future.

“I want to have a bigger family,” Alexis tells Jason Lee. “I want to get married,” she explains. “Before I’m thirty [years old], I definitely want a ring and I want to get married. [I] want to settle down and have a son. Right now, I’m not really trying to have any kids because Alaiya needs all of my attention.”
