ASHLEY Cain fans have flooded his daughter Azaylia's GoFundMe with donations as they pay tribute after her death.
It comes after the dad, 30,announced the heartbreaking news that his baby girl had lost her battle with a very rare and aggressive form of leukaemia yesterday.
Ashley and his partner Safiyya Vorajee set up an online fundraiser and get their terminally ill daughter over to Singapore for treatment.
The couple managed to raise over £1 million in less than 24 hours in a bid to save their daughter, but their world came crashing down when doctors said that her disease was too rare to treat.
Since Azaylia's tragic death, fans have taken to her GoFundMe page to write touching words and help raise money to fight against the disease that took her life.
Since starting up the fundraiser on March 27 2020, the page now has 115,200 donors and they have managed to raise £1,598,840.
One fan wrote: "I can't even imagine what you are you are going through. But God bless."
Another said: "Sweet Dreams Beautiful Girl! You have inspired millions of people with your strength and courage! You fought till the end baby girl! Now it's time to rest! Have fun with the Angels Azaylia xxx."
A third added: "Rest now little lady your fight and beautiful little face was an inspiration to us all."
A fourth said: "Rest in paradise beautiful princess."
Ashley – who shot to fame on the first series of Ex on the Beach in 2016 – took to Instagram to share the devastating news yesterday.
Alongside a picture of him holding his baby girl: "Rest in paradise princess. I will always hold you in my heart until I can hold you again in heaven."
Azaylia's mum Safiyya added: "You are my Angel my heartbeat my soul, RIP my precious baby, you will always be with me like a handprint on my heart."
Two months after Azaylia was born in August 2020 she was diagnosed with leukaemia.
The couple kept fans up to date with their daughter's condition throughout her six month battle.
Her health started to deteriorate and on April 8 and Ashley revealed in a heartbreaking Instagram video that his little girl could only have "days to live".
They decided to take eight-month old Azaylia home from hospital to enjoy the remaining time they had with her.
Today Ashley credited his daughter Azaylia with "saving my life" in a heartbreaking tribute following her death.
He opened up about his grief in a moving post as he vowed to keep her legacy alive, explaining how she had made him a better man.
Sharing a picture of him holding her hand, he wrote: "My heart is shattered ?.
"You gave my life purpose, my face a smile, filled my heart with love and my soul with pride.
Ashley continued: "You made me a better man. You made me the person I’ve always wanted to be. You’ve taught me more in your 8 months than I’ve learned my whole life.
"I don’t know why you’ve been taken away from me and my heart aches in your absence."
The star went on to make a series of promises for his darling daughter.
"But I promise you that your name with live on. I will carry your name across every ocean, along every road, to the top of every mountain and across the whole globe," he wrote.
"Your name will live, your legacy will be remembered and I will seek peace in living as your vessel to continue inspiring, giving strength, spreading joy and saving "
He continued: "You saved my life, you really did. With my second chance, I make a promise to you that I will make yours live on in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers.
"I am blessed, I am honoured and I am privileged to be your father. I would go through all of the pain again and again. Because what you gave me in those 8 months will live with me for eternity."
He then quoted the lyrics from The Jungle Book song 'I want to be like you', which is a tune both he and Safiyya often sang for Azaylia.
Safiyya took to her Instagram Story earlier today to share the quote: "She's proof that you can walk through hell and still be an angel."
Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon and former England footballer Rio Ferdinand's wife Kate were among those who posted tributes.
Reality stars Vicky Pattison, Wayne Lineker, Scarlett Moffatt and Giovanna Fletcher also sent their condolences.
Even Hollywood superstar Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson got in touch with the family to share his sympathy.
