I heard that Imam Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) was born inside the Ka'bah, that is the walls cracked and he was delivered inside the kaabah. My question is what is the validity of this story according to the shia? did the events in this story actually happen? I am looking for clear cut evidences of the veracity of this story and the events in it according to the shia view.

The born of “Amir Almo’menin“ in the house of Allah is a great virtue and honor which Allah assigned to him to celebrate his dignity and worth.
There are many narrations that Fatima Bint Asad bore amir almomenin Imam Ali ibne abi Talib “karam Allah vajha” , Inside Ka’aba.
Some other narrations:
And the question is why? Why Imam Ali ibne abi Talib was born inside the Kaaba? Maybe Alusi gives us the answer:
Mahmud al-Alusi says:
Glory be to God who puts everything in its place and hi is the most just of all judges
