Ali and her husband’s rainbow baby happens to be a baby girl!

The couple’s pregnancy news comes a year after Ali suffered a devastating late-term miscarriage in May 2019 at five months pregnant.

Ali told Atlanta Black Star last November that losing the baby, whom she named Sanaa, was “traumatizing.”

“It was very, very hard to deal with,” she said. “If it wasn’t for me to be able to have that therapy process and having the support and the women telling me, ‘This is what happened to me,’ I wouldn’t have found out that 1 in every 4 pregnancies is a loss. Those numbers are not ever really presented to us — especially as women of color.”

“It’s still something that I deal with every single day,” she continued. “I think that it doesn’t ever leave you; it becomes a part of who you are,” Ali says. “But if you’re able to figure out ways to release whatever it is that you’re feeling inside, that’s the process of healing.”

It’s unclear how far along Ali is, but congrats to her and her husband on their newest addition to the family.
