Muhammad Ali's boxer daughter Laila has married former American football star Curtis Conway in a private ceremony in Los Angeles on July 22.
The Dancing With The Stars finalist wed retired sportsman Conway in a "simple but elegant" ceremony in front of 200 guests on Sunday. Among those in the wedding party were Laila's parents, Muhammad and Veronica, her sister Hana, and Conway's 12-year-old sons from a former relationship, Kelton and Cameron. The twin boys served as ringbearers for the ceremony, while Conway's eight-year-old daughter Leilani took part as the flowergirl.
The blushing bride - who had been dating Conway for two years - walked down the aisle in a champagne-coloured strapless silk gown designed by Amy Michelson. Wedding planner Juliet Ryan says, "Laila's approach to the wedding was simple but elegant. There were no lions and tigers and bears. It was about the love."
