Keke Palmer and Boyfriend Welcome Their First Child and Announce the News in the Sweetest Way

Actress Keke Palmer is officially a mother and she is beyond excited to share the news with the world. The 29-year-old posted an adorable series of photos of her new little family and described her first 48 hour journey as a mama. We congratulate this young couple and we can’t wait to share those sweet snaps with you.

The Emmy Award winner and her fitness instructor boyfriend have named their baby boy Leodis “Leo” Andrellton.

Keke, who has been a mother for only 2 days, has shared a slideshow of her family’s very first snaps on Instagram, along with the caption ’’Hey Son!!!!’

Some of the sweet pics and clips showed Keke and her boyfriend Darius Jackson in the hospital right after the birth and in the car as they adjust to their new role as parents.

The proud mama also shared close-up pics of her little bundle of joy.

One of the photos showed her in her hospital bed holding newborn Leo, while Darius gently touches her as he looks at their baby boy affectionately. She humorously captioned the pic ’’I’m not hiding the world from my son, I’m hiding my son from the world.’’

Palmer also celebrated the profound bond between her and her partner by writing, ’’We became each other’s someone and made a someone.’’

The 29-year-old star first disclosed her pregnancy news in December on TV while debuting as a host on Saturday Night Live. During her opening monologue, she addressed the rumors about her having a baby, by saying, “I wanna set the record straight — I am!” She then unbuttoned her jacket to reveal her baby bump underneath.

We wish these lovely new parents a wonderful journey, and we can’t wait to see more updates on their little family.
