It’s a busy week for the Oscar nominee.

In the days leading up to the Oscars, first-time nominee Mahershala Ali has another reason to celebrate.

The Moonlight actor and wife Amatus Sami-Karim welcomed their first child, Bari Najma Ali, on Feb. 22, the proud father announced on Instagram Friday with a photo of Sami-Karim holding their newborn.

Back in January, Ali (whose full first name is Mahershalalhashbaz) visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! and told the Oscars host that the pair wanted to do “something a little bit simpler for our child” when it came to naming the baby.

“Still keep it unique,” he clarified. “But something a little bit simpler.”
