Previously, he brought to life Boris, one of the Supremo’s (Richard Gutierrez) vampire servants in the successful fantasy series La Luna Sangre. He has also become one of Vice President Lucas Cabrera (Edu Manzano) and Congressman Brandon Cabrera’s (Mark Anthony Fernandez) men named Campos in hit cop series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. The latest addition to his resume is being a dweller of Bagani’s hidden realm called Dako Pa Roon.
Ali Khatabi certainly fits the prescribed image of these tough and manly roles. Even if his current character in Bagani is not caught up in acting like in his other portrayals, the costume still does a great job of showing off his impressive muscles. All of these attributes can be credited to the fact that he does Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is even a professional coach of the martial art.
Little do fans know, however, Ali has a soft side that he reserves for only one special little girl. The actor tied the knot back in January of 2016 to actress Cristine Reyes, and the fruit of their love is the adorable baby Amarah.
Despite his active lifestyle, the devote father never misses an opportunity to bond with his princess. For Amarah’s birthday last year, instead of throwing a party, Ali decided to take her to a race track. In the caption of one photo he revealed that his favorite work out is every moment with the little one, “Honestly guys, this is the best work out for me. I love carrying my beautiful baby Amarah. Aside from being a workout in itself, it also allows me to bond with her & share precious moments…” From accompanying her on the first day of school and attending other school activities to going out on mall dates every Sunday, he obviously has his priorities straight. Now we know what daddy goals look like.
