Keke Palmer can add “mom” to her multi-hyphenated existence. She and boyfriend Darius Jackson have welcomed their first child together.
Palmer revealed the news via Instagram in a post that included six slides of photos and videos. The final two slides show close-ups of the couple’s adorable newborn baby boy. In the caption of the post, Palmer writes, in part, “Born during Black History Month, with a name to match! LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world baby Leo.”
The Nope actress included numbered captions for each photo and video. The first slide is one many first-time parents can likely relate to: Keke and Darius looking excited, yet mildly overwhelmed. The photo is aptly captioned, “Only 48hrs of being parents!”
Palmer famously revealed her pregnancy during the opening monologue while she was hosting the December 3, 2022 episode of Saturday Night Live.
We send our heartfelt congratulations to Keke and Darius on the birth of their beautiful son!
