Hi! I'm Laila Ali. I'm an athlete, fitness & wellness expert, TV host, cooking enthusiast, founder of the Laila Ali Lifestyle Brand, and mother of two. I'm the youngest daughter of the late beloved global icon and humanitarian, Muhammad Ali.
Following in my father's footsteps, I'm a two-time hall of famer and four-time undefeated boxing world champion, whose record includes 24 wins (21 of which were “knockouts”) and zero losses. I'm listed as the most successful female in the history of women’s boxing. In 2012, when women’s boxing was included in the Olympics for the first time in history, I was the first woman in history to provide expert commentary for NBC Sports.
As a cooking enthusiast, I previously appeared twice on Food Network’s celebrity edition of “Chopped” and emerged as the champion. Continuing my passion in the cooking space, I hosted the FYI Network food truck competition series “Late Night Chef Fight.” I've been a guest on daytime shows such as Rachael Ray, The Chew, and I've prepared my famous “oven baked fried chicken” on Steve Harvey’s hit daytime talk show.
I'm the host of OWN Emmy award-winning series, “Home Made Simple” and the author of the best-selling cookbook, “Food For Life: Delicious & Healthy Comfort Food From My Table To Yours!” A major source of the inspiration for writing this particular cookbook was my desire to show people how they could enjoy healthier and more nutritious versions of their favorite foods without having to compromise taste.
Ignited by my passion for an active lifestyle and wanting to share this with my supporters, I created my own lifestyle blog LailaAliLifestyle.com where I regularly share personal workout regimens, recipes, DIY ideas, family tips, and so much more!
One of my favorite passion projects is the weekly “healthy lifestyle” podcast series I launched on the PodcastOne Network in 2017. I'm also the three-time host of the televised ESPN Sports Humanitarian Awards. I've been a regular contributor for the CBS Sports Network’s new all female sports commentary program, “We Need to Talk,” the first of its kind in the history of sports broadcasting.
For multiple seasons I hosted “Everyday Health” airing in national syndication on ABC, in addition to being the previous co-host of “American Gladiators” and former host of “All-In With Laila Ali,” which aired in weekend syndication on CBS.
I'm a past President of the Women’s Sports Foundation, a non-profit organization that is supported by many of the biggest athletes in the world. Through the WSF, I promote equality for women in the world of professional sports, and I'm an advocate for programs that encourage young women to be confident, healthy and strong through sports.
I was a major voice for the 40th anniversary of Title IX, which protects women’s rights to be included and treated equally in collegiate sports. Always eager to encourage others to live an active lifestyle, I was the 2012 “Mombassador” for the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon.
I also appeared as a guest-star on popular fitness shows, “Biggest Loser” and “The Revolution.” I had multiple hilarious roles as Kevin Hart’s boxing nemesis on the hit comedic series, “Real Husbands of Hollywood.” In 2014, I made my feature film-acting debut as the co-star of the action movie, “Falcon Rising,” opposite martial arts star, Michael Jai White.
Never one to turn down a good challenge, I made it to the final round of the fourth season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” in 2007.
With philanthropy at my core, I'm a major supporter of charitable organizations such as Feeding America, Children’s Hospital and Peace 4 Kids. I'm extremely proud of the work I've done on behalf of the American Dental Association to create oral health awareness for children and I'm equally proud to be an ongoing supporter and partner with the American Heart Association. This partnership supports my belief in being heart healthy and assists in the facilitation of much needed awareness about heart disease and strokes in communities most affected by these illnesses.
As an inspirational speaker and author, I've had keynoted speaking events at Harvard University, North Carolina A&T, and have spoken to thousands of executives at leadership conferences for multi-billion dollar corporate brands around the world. My life’s story is chronicled in a dynamic book for young women entitled “Reach!” which has just been re-released to the public.
I studied business management at Santa Monica College. I enjoy life in the Los Angeles area with my husband, former NFL star and current sports TV analyst, Curtis Conway, and my two young children, Curtis Jr. (son) and Sydney (daughter).
