In the shot, Ali is holding his baby girl on his lap, while gazing lovingly at her. The actor and his wife, Amatus Sami-Karim, welcomed their little one in late February, the same week he won the Oscar for Moonlight.

Shortly after the birth, Ali spoke with ET about fatherhood, saying, “It’s such a blessing to be a father.”

He went on to praise his wife, saying, “Hands down, women are the toughest beings on the planet. I’m not saying that to be cool. I don’t care if you have children, choose to have children. I don’t care if you took every pain medication in the world to have children.”
