Ashley Cain has shared a touching clip of him giving baby daughter Azaylia her last hospital bath before preparing to take her home with girlfriend Safiyya.
The Ex on the Beach star admitted: "I don’t know what I will do without you" in the heartbreaking Instagram caption.
In pictures and videos shared to his Instagram account, baby Azaylia can be seen enjoying a warm bath in hospital while dad Ashley hands her a yellow ball to play with.
The brave little one looks happy while she enjoys the time with her dad.
"Splish splish splash!" Ashley grins as he asks Azaylia if she’s enjoying the bath.
Later, she was all bundled up in a fluffy pink blanket and knitted hat as Ashley told her: "Let’s go home."
Eight-month-old Azaylia was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia, and it was hoped her family could get her to Singapore for treatment.
Ashley smashed his £1million fundraising target to afford a year-long CAR-T therapy and haploidentical transplant which would have given the baby a fighting chance.
But on Thursday, Ashley said doctors had found additional tumours which meant treatment couldn’t be attempted.
Two new tumours were found on Azaylia’s brain, and chemotherapy would not be available because of the pressure they were creating.
Ashley explained alongside the new post: "Azaylia’s last bath in hospital, before we take her home where she belongs.
"9 days ago consultants told us my daughter had 1-2 days to live, but thought she may pass that evening.
"Even with a barbaric disease consuming her blood, tumours in her brain and organs and amounts of pain i cannot imagine… she is still battling through 9 days later, with parts of the day with nothing but smiles despite her discomfort."
"This is a testament of this little girl’s strength and the fight she has possessed all of the way through.
"She has fought a battle that not many, if any, of us could have endured and she’s earned the love and respect of many on the way," he continued.
"The truth is though, I hope and pray that I have earned hers! Even through the hardest and saddest time of my life, she has found a way to make it better.
