Emmy Award winner Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson have expanded their family to three! On Monday, the couple announced the arrival of their first child, a baby boy named Leodis “Leo” Andrellton.
The mom of 48 hours excitedly shared some of their first family photos together on Instagram after welcoming their newborn son.
“Hey Son!!!!” Palmer wrote, adding: “Born during Black History Month, with a name to match! LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world baby Leo.”
On the initial slide, she posted a picture of the couple after “just 48 hours of becoming parents!” On the following slide, she uploaded a video of herself singing “Someone” by El Debarge to Jackson in the car. This song had been included in some playlists he created for her during the initial stages of their relationship.
“We became each other’s someone and made a someone, look at God!” Palmer wrote.
Palmer also shared some photos of their family of three in the hospital after welcoming baby Leo, including close-ups of their little one’s face.
“‘I’m not hiding the world from my son, I’m hiding my son from the world.’ Hahaha,” she wrote, adding, “I’m just playing, my baby face is on this slide … And this slide.”
The lead actress of “Nope” initially disclosed her pregnancy in December while hosting “Saturday Night Live”. During the show, she revealed that she is expecting her first child with Jackson, who is a former college football player and fitness instructor.
“There’s some rumors going around, people have been in my comments saying, ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I wanna set the record straight — I am!” Palmer exclaimed during her opening monologue, unbuttoning her long jacket to reveal her baby bump.
