“After a devastating and heartbreaking year, Safiyya and I decided to separate a few months ago. This was an incredibly tough decision which we needed to keep to ourselves for some time to give us the opportunity to figure out our own journey privately,” Cain, 31, wrote via his Instagram Story on Wednesday, March 30.

The former reality star added: “The past few months have demonstrated that we remain the closest of friends, spending time together everyday, and that we will love, care and support each other forever. We are bonded by our powerful journey together, by the eternal love we have for our daughter, and our passionate commitment to her foundation.”

This news comes one year after Azaylia, their 8-month old daughter, succumbed to leukemia. Cain and Vorajee welcomed their baby girl in August 2020. Two months later, the Ex on the Beach UKAlum discovered that the newborn had leukemia.

“Yesterday I had to go through something no parent in the world should have to go through,” he captioned an Instagram video with his sleeping daughter at the time. “The single most upsetting, terrifying and heartbreaking experience I have ever been through. My beautiful daughter Azaylia Diamond Cavin was diagnosed with an aggressive and rare form of leukaemia. [sic]This has brought many complications. Everyone who wishes to pray for my brave little girl azaylia, who is currently fighting for her life. Mummy and Daddy love you princess LETS GO CHAMP You CAN and you WILL beat this!”

Azaylia underwent a stem cell procedure in January 2021 to prolong her life. However, her cancer returned. Three months later, Cain announced his daughter’s passing, writing via Instagram: “Rest In Paradise Princess. I will always hold you in my heart until I can hold you again in heaven.”

Vorajee also honoured their child. “You are my Angel my heartbeat my soul,” she captioned an Instagram post that same month. “RIP my precious baby, you will always be with me like a handprint on my heart.”

Cain and Vorajee paid tribute to their daughter earlier this month on the one-year mark of her stem cell transplant. “1 year ago today Azaylia had her stem cell transplant and entered another fearless battle for her life,” he wrote on Instagram. “She fought through it like the true champion she was and engrafted 100% within record time.”

Cain concluded: “She displayed and brought love, happiness, strength and courage through every single step of her journey. She fought, inspired and left her mark on this world in such a beautiful innocent and pure little body which held the heart of a true lion.”
