Muhammad Ali Reportedly In ‘Grave Condition’ As Daughter Laila Speaks Out Amid His Hospitalization

So scary.

Oh no. We hope Muhammad Ali can pull through.

On Thursday, the boxing legend was checked in to a Phoenix-area hospital after suffering from respiratory issues. And while the 74-year-old’s rep had said he was alright and wouldn’t be in the medical facility for very long, it appears the ailing athlete isn’t actually doing that well.

According to NBC News, a well-informed source says the former heavyweight champ is in “grave condition.” Earlier, insiders had also said that the fighter’s longterm battle with Parkinson’s disease is complicating his condition.

During this tough time, the sports star’s daughter Laila Ali has taken to Facebook to share a sweet snap (above) of her famous father, and thank his fans for their support.

The 38-year-old posted a precious picture of Muhammad holding his granddaughter, Sydney, captioning the adorable image:

“I love this photo of my father and my daughter Sydney when she was a baby!

Thank for all the love and well wishes. I feel your love and appreciate it!!”

Her rep echoed that sentiment in a statement to Entertainment Tonight, saying:

“Laila’s number one priority is her father’s well-being. She truly appreciates the outpouring of love for her family, as she spends quality time with her dad.”

We’re glad Miz Ali is keeping her spirits up during this scary situation, because we can’t imagine what she must be going through right now.

Our thought are with Muhammad and his loved ones, and we wish him a speedy recovery.
