Oscar 2017: New-daddy Mahershala Ali now best `Actor in a supporting role,` beat

Washington D.C. [USA], Feb. 27 : Raise the toast! It is a double celebration for Mahershala Ali.

After announcing the birth of his first child, with wife Amatus Sami-Karim two days back, Ali now bags the golden Statuette at the 89th Academy Awards in the ' Actor in a supporting role' category for 'Moonlight.'

"I just want to thank [my wife] for being such a soldier through this process and carrying me through it all," said the 43-year-old actor, while accepting the trophy on stage.

' Moonlight' sees Ali, portraying a Cuban-born drug dealer, living in Miami, who becomes a surrogate father to a bullied youngster and tries to instill confidence in him.

With this, Dev Patel, who was also running for the Oscars for 'Lion,' loses 'Supporting Actor' award to Mahershala Ali.

On a related note, the 'House of Cards' actor confirmed the news of the birth of his baby girl Bari Najma, on Instagram, with a picture of his wife cuddling the tiny tot, clicked from the back side.

The snap was captioned, "Bari (Bar-ee) Najma Ali 2/22/17 #pisces." (ANI)
