Alongside the shot, Safiyya penned: “Rest in paradise baby A. Love you so so much.”

Just hours later, the heartbroken mum took to her Instagram Story to admit she was reflecting on her daughter’s tragedy.

Safiyya shared: “It’s ten past two in the morning and I just cannot sleep. My mind is ticking, like why did they happen to Azaylia?

“I just don’t get it, I really don’t get it. So much reflection now that I have – I just think why her?”

She added: “I was in such a drill mode, where I couldn’t absorb each day because of something new that was going on that was taking up my mind capacity.

“Now I’m sitting here and reflecting on everything it’s just crazy and real.”

The emotional post follows shortly after Ashley and Safiyya announced their plan to use the £1.6million raised by generous fans to set up a charity in Azaylia’s name.

The grieving couple say they have been forever changed by the “monster” that leukaemia-stricken Azaylia bravely fought against before it took her life at eight months old.

They plan to use the fundraising cash – most of which was raised in 24 hours – on helping others through charity work, as well as giving Azaylia the “magical” send-off she deserves.

In a statement released on Azaylia’s GoFundMe page, Ashley and Safiyya said: “To all our amazing supporters, we wanted to – firstly – send our heartfelt thank you to everyone who donated money, made and sent gifts, commented, prayed and showered our family with love and strength during the toughest days of our lives.

“Azaylia joined the angels in heaven on Saturday, April 24, after the most courageous battle with AML.

“She showed her heart, strength and determination every step of the way and we are so so proud of her.

“During her short life on earth side she brought the world together, she claimed a community – her very own pride – who came together to make amazing things happen. The world lit up. The world talked about childhood cancer. The world showed it heart. And YOU helped to make all of that happen. 

“The amount of money needed for Azaylia’s potential treatment in Singapore was raised in just 24 hours. That money can sadly no longer be used to help Azaylia but we want to make sure it is used positively – and in Azaylia’s name.”

In her short life, eight-month-old Azaylia touched millions across the world throughout her battle with an aggressive form of leukaemia.
