Speaking of his wife and her ability to keep him grounded, Ali told ELLE in 2014, "She and I have known each other for a really long time (about) 17 years. So, at this point, she's seen a big shift in things, but at the same time, she'll ground me real quick if I start feeling myself a little too much. She's very real, like, seriously.”
