Boxing Champion and Ex Dancing With The Staralum,Laila Ali, says that DWTS has opened up a new world of career opportunities for her. The Mom-to-be will be the host of a new Kid’s show on Nickelodeon,debuting on July 11th. When asked whether or not she is any good with kids,Laila replied:”I can fake it ’til I make it,but my husband is excellent[with kids].”

The “Dancing,” stint, it turns out, opened up a new world of opportunities, including her contributing gig on CBS’s “The Early Show,” her NBC “American Gladiators” cohosting job with Hulk Hogan — and her role as host and unofficial godmother on the kid makeover reality show “The N’s Student Body,” debuting July 11 on Nickelodeon’s teen-centric The N channel.

“It’s kind of like the kids’ version of ‘The Biggest Loser,’ with kids losing weight and getting in shape — and also changing their attitudes, dealing with personal issues and stuff, while their communities and families come together. A lot of these kids don’t know how to take care of themselves. They learn to love themselves and gain confidence.” While she mentored the girls, “My husband was able to come in and impart wisdom to the boys,” she adds, referring to her mate, former NFL wide receiver Curtis Conway.

Is she good with kids? “I can fake it ’til I make it, but my husband is excellent. He can take 10 kids to the movies by himself.” We love that. “I love it, too, so I don’t have to be the one,” says Laila, who’s expecting her and Curtis’ son in September.
