Keke Palmer is officially a mother! The beloved American actress welcomed her first child with her boyfriend, Darius Jackson.

The 29-year-old NOPE star announced on social media that she had given birth to her first child with several beautiful photos of her family on Monday (February 27).

Taking to Instagram, Palmer announced she welcomed a lovely baby boy named Leodis Andrellton Jackson. “Born during Black History Month, with a name to match! LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world baby Leo,” she wrote.

One photo showed the overjoyed couple in the hospital with the family’s newest addition, while another included an adorable close-up of the baby looking comfy as he slept all wrapped up in a blanket.

The actress surprised fans last December when she shared her pregnancy by kicking off her Saturday Night Live debut with an adorable baby bump reveal on stage.
