Keke Palmer, an actress, meme queen, and media mogul, is a mother now.
On Monday, the actress announced the birth of Leodis, the kid she and her boyfriend, Darius Jackson, share. Palmer posted videos and pictures of her infant boy along with hilarious commentary on being a new parent, including the Drake allusion, “I’m not hiding the world from my son, I’m hiding my son from the world.”
“With a name that fits, I was born during Black History Month! Jackson, Leodis Andrel, “Palmer penned. “Baby Leo, welcome to the world!”
The “Nope” actress originally revealed she was expecting in front of a large audience while hosting “Saturday Night Live” in December, following rumours from a few of her social media followers.
Keke said from the 30 Rockefeller Plaza studio in New York City, “People have been in my comments saying, ‘Keke’s having a baby,’ ‘Keke’s pregnant. And I want to clear the air by saying that I am.
She received a loud round of applause as she opened an oversized trench coat to expose a crop top and a baby bump. Palmer made light of the situation, saying that “it’s horrible when people propagate things about you on the internet… but it’s even worse when they’re true.”
Following the announcement, Palmer continued to flaunt her growing baby bulge in David LaChapelle photo shoots, on red carpets, and in dancing TikToks.
Palmer, a Virgo, discussed her unborn child on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on January 24, disclosing the unborn child’s potential zodiac sign and disclosing the baby’s sex.
“Thus, my unborn child will either be an Aries or a Pisces. I’m not entirely sure, “Said Palmer. “Pisces are known to be very emotional and introspective people. I simply want to make sure I’m not being too direct around my son.”
I sometimes tend to ‘tell it like it is,'” she continued. With a Pisces, I need to “walk in the water.”
Palmer’s announcement post received a deluge of supportive comments from Palmer’s famous friends.
“Congrats! “Queer Eye: Very pleased for you both.” “Karamo Brown, a star, wrote.
