Is Keke Palmer Still Pregnant? No. The “Hustlers” star and her boyfriend, Darius Daulton Jackson, are new parents, she announced Monday.
Palmer revealed on Instagram that she and Jackson welcomed their baby boy this weekend. The actor shared a collection of photos and videos documenting her early days in parenthood with Jackson.
“We became someone and made someone, look at God!” Palmer wrote in a caption, calling El Debarge’s “Someone.” In the respective video, she and Jackson jammed MO3 and OG Bobby Billions’ “Outside (Better Days)” while their newborn son slept in his car seat behind them.
Palmer also shared some clips from the hospital room where Jackson rocked their newborn, along with close-up shots of the baby.
“Born during Black History Month, with a name to match,” she concluded her announcement. “LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world, baby Leo.”
Palmer welcomed her first child months after announcing her pregnancy on her “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut in December.
“People have said in my comments, ‘Keke is having a baby. Keke is pregnant.’ And I want to set the record straight: I am,” Palmer said, before revealing her baby bump.
“It’s bad when people spread rumors about you on the internet, guys. But it’s even worse when they’re right!” she added.
“I tried so hard to keep it down because I have a lot of things going on, you know? People kept coming up to me, “Congratulations!” I’m like, ‘Shh, can you guys stop? I’ve got a booze sponsorship at stake. Have the check cleared! Then we can go to the goddamn baby shower.’”
A month before welcoming her son, Palmer accidentally revealed her baby’s gender on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.” When asked about astrology, Palmer (a Virgo) said her baby will be “either a Pisces or Aries”.
‘Let me know, guys. Pisces are known to be very deep, they’re emotional creatures,” she said, “so I just want to make sure I’m not being too blunt with my little boy.”
Now that her baby has arrived, Palmer’s prediction was correct: Baby Leo is indeed a Pisces.
