Muhammad was having an adulterous romance at the time with a 16-year-old Wanda Bolton, who subsequently changed her name to Aaisha Ali and whom Ali ultimately married in an Islamic ceremony but was not legally recognized. Khaliah, the couple’s daughter, was born in 1974. Ali’s constant adultery caused his second and third marriages to actress Veronica Porche to terminate in divorce before settling with his fourth wife, Yolanda “Lonnie” Williams, in 1986. He and Porche have two children, Hana and Laila. In 1986, he adopted a five-month-old son named Asaad Amin with his fourth wife, Yolanda.

Miya didn’t understand her father was renowned until 1996.

During an interview with Marchon FilmFest, Miya discussed her upbringing as the daughter of a boxing legend. She said that she did not understand how well-known her father was until 2012. According to Miya, she felt she had a typical childhood and that everyone did. Though she was aware of what her father accomplished, it was not until 1996 that she realized the significance of who her father was. When her father lighted the Olympic torch in Atlanta in 1996, she understood how well-known he was. She said she thought “wow, that’s wonderful” when she observed others sobbing during the event.
