Alicia aka Ali is the youngest of Connie Ferguson's kids. She was born in 2002 and just like the rest of her family, she is inclined to the arts. However, Ali is more inclined to dancing and playing the drums, and is frequently seen on her mother's Instagram teaching her a few steps.

As the baby of the family, Ali was also very close to her parents, specifically her father and they often referred to each other as ‘twin’ or ‘doppelganger’. The two would regularly post each other on social media melting our hearts and giving the cutest daddy - daughter moments.
