Bari Najma Ali is stealing hearts online. Mahershala Ali shared a candid of him with his daughter on Instagram earlier this week, and the photo gained more than 50,000 likes.
Mahershala didn’t show Bari’s face but just the image of the infant sitting with her father was enough for followers to look in adoration. “She is delightful,” one fan wrote. “Love this,” commented another follower.
Bari joined the family on February 22, 2017. The little one came just days before her father won an Academy Award for his performance in the hit film, Moonlight.
“It’s a different kind of crazy,” Mahershala told PEOPLE weeks after his daughter’s birth. “Fortunately, she sleeps pretty well through the night. It’s just during the day she’s hands on,” he added.
Ali also told media, “It’s just been great getting to know this little person whose body seems to change every day and whose awareness heightens every day. It’s just been exciting.”
Bari Najma Ali is Mahershala Ali and wife Amatus Sami-Karim’s first child. The couple celebrates fourteen years of marriage this year.
