It鈥檚 Hollywood鈥檚 biggest night, and one actor has already made history.

Mahershala Ali just announced two days ago that he and his wife welcomed a baby daughter named Bari earlier this week. Tonight, Ali can add a Best Supporting Actor Oscar to his week鈥檚 highlights reel of life-changing moments. He can also claim a monumental moment in Academy Awards history as the first Muslim actor, EVER, to win the award.

Ali nabbed the big prize for his role as Juan in the groundbreaking film Moonlight. Earlier in this awards season, he won a SAG award for the same role just two days after President Trump鈥檚 administration announced a controversial ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-minority countries. In his speech, Ali acknowledged how he and his beloved mother 鈥 a minister 鈥 were able to put aside their different beliefs when he converted to Islam.

In that speech, he said:

鈥淪he didn鈥檛 do backflips when I called her to tell her I converted 17 years ago. But I tell you now, we put things to the side, and I鈥檓 able to see her and she鈥檚 able to see me. We love each other. The love has grown. And that stuff is minutiae. It鈥檚 not that important.鈥

Now, with her son鈥檚 latest triumph, Mama Ali certainly has much to be proud of.

Tell us what you thought of Ali鈥檚 big win @BritandCo!
