Mahershala Ali and wife Amatus Sami-Karim welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Bari Najma, shortly before he took home an Oscar in February. He shared a touching Instagram photo of Amatus cradling their new bundle of joy soon after her birth, and now he's given his followers a glimpse at him in dad mode. "Bari x Abu 💜," he captioned a sweet black-and-white picture of Bari resting on his knee on Tuesday.
