Ali shared details about the baby with PEOPLE, explaining the choice of her baby girl’s name.
“I chose it because it’s Arabic and means ‘protected, diligence,’ and I strongly feel God covered she and I the whole way.”
The 36-year-old was extra protective over her rainbow baby, sharing her experience of miscarriage just last year.
The media maven loss her unborn child last June after having to be forced into labor due to her cervix opening and her water breaking.
“Every single day, I would get up and feel her kicking and I would talk to her,” she said of the time before the loss. “Not like a baby, but like a person. I would say, ‘What are we eating this morning?’ Or, ‘Okay, you’re getting agitated and feisty. I know you’re hungry and I’m going to eat something.’ ”
Rah continued, “Our bond was so strong. Maybe because God knew I would never be able to experience it … I just felt so connected to her.”
Earlier this summer, Rah revealed she and her husband were expecting a daughter, announcing to the world with a glamourous photoshoot.
Born on Wednesday, Nov. 11, baby Anaiá weighed 7 lbs., 14 oz., measuring 18 inches long. According to PEOPLE, the precious baby girl was delivered at Mercy Hospital in Miami.
Rah broke the news she gave birth on her own media platform, It’s On Site. The star also hosts a radio show by the same name.
