She has eight half-siblings

Muhammad was the father of nine children from his different relationships, and Miya was his fourth child. 

Ali was married to Sonji Roi, a cocktail waitress to whom he was introduced by Herbert Muhammad, his long-time manager. 

Ali popped the question after their first date, and a month later, in August 1964, they exchanged wedding vows. 

Two years later, their marriage ended because of Roi's refusal to join the Nation of Islam

The following year in August 1967, Ali wed for the second time to his second wife, Belinda Boyd, who later changed her name to Khalilah Ali

From their marriage union, they gave birth to their four children, rapper Maryum in 1968, twins Jamillah and Rasheda in 1970, and Muhammad Ali Jr. in 1972

At the time, Muhammad was having an extramarital affair with a 16-year-old Wanda Bolton, who later changed her name to Aaisha Ali, with whom Ali later married in an Islamic ceremony but was not legally recognized. 

The couple gave birth to their daughter Khaliah in 1974.

Ali's continuous infidelity led to his second as well as third marriage to his third wife, actress Veronica Porche to an end with divorce before he finally settled with his fourth wife, Yolanda "Lonnie" Williams, in 1986

He fathered two daughters, Hana and Laila, with Porche. With his fourth wife, Yolanda, he adopted a five-month-old son Asaad Amin in 1986.

During an interview with Marchon FilmFest, Miya opened up about her life growing up as the daughter of a boxing legend. 

Where she said, she did not realize how popular her father was until 2012. According to Miya, she thought she had a normal life growing up and that everyone had that life. 

Though she knew what her father did, she did not realize the magnitude of who her father was until 1996

In 1996, when her father lit the torch at Olympics in Atlanta, she realized how popular he was. 

She said when she saw the people present at the ceremony crying, she was like, "wow, that's cool."

She also said her father was a giver. He loved people and children and did so much that went unrecognized and unseen.

"What you do here on this earth is the rent you pay to get into heaven."
