His Daughter Was Born in Her Amniotic Sac

Right before he took home the Oscar, Ali took home his first child. Wife Amatus Sami-Karim gave birth to their daughter, Bari Najma Ali, last Wednesday. She had a very unique birth.

“The water didn’t break until the baby was literally almost out,” he told Access Hollywood. “So when she was born, she came out in a clear, like, bag. And I’m going, ‘Wow, they come brand new!’ And … she was in the sack, and it was incredible!”
