Keke Palmer Announces Birth of Baby Leo!

Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson have an adorable new human in their lives!

The Emmy-winning star has announced the birth of their first child, a boy named “Leo”. She posted a bunch of photos on social media including a pic of the new parents looking rather shell-shocked, “48 hours” after giving birth, as well as a series of close ups of baby Leo’s sweet face:

“Hey Son!!!!!” she captioned the photos.

“Born during Black History Month, with a name to match! LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world baby Leo.”

You might remember, the Nope and Hustlers actor spectacularly announced she was pregnant in December last year when she surprised all of us during her set on Saturday Night Live by unbuttoning her jacket and revealing a baby bump.

“There’s some rumours 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!” she said during her opening monologue.

“I gotta say though, it’s bad when people on the internet spread rumours about you y’all. But it’s even worse when they’re correct! I mean, like, I was trying so hard to keep it on the down low, ’cause I got a lot of stuff going on, you know?”

She adds, “But honestly, this has been the biggest blessing and I am so excited. Guys, I’m going to be a mum!”
