In her most recent Instagram photo series, Palmer flaunted her growing baby bump while having the time of her life on a recent tropical vacation.

The final image in her unforgettable photo series was a sweet picture of her and her fiancé, Jackson, with whom she is expecting a child.
She Captioned The Post With An Inspiring Message

The “Nope” actress first penned a cute anecdote, saying, “baby moon was in full affect” to show how excited she was about the pregnancy.
She then penned a lengthy write-up about taking time out to rest, in line with the season’s theme.
Palmer wrote, “I’m really proud of myself for resting this trip…..I learned to at least schedule things leisurely, so I have something to complete that’s on brand with the theme of the season.”
The actress said she had “spent many seasons sacrificing” and wouldn’t change, noting that her parents’ values, especially her father’s, played a huge role.
She added, “I want to be just like him. his life is full, and he has given so much. I don’t think giving or sacrificing are bad things, it’s who I am, and that will never change.”
Keke Palmer Says She Is Evolving
Elsewhere in her post, the actress shared that this new season would involve her learning “to really take it easy,” unlike her previous lifestyle.
Explaining further, she told her fans that her decision would in no way impede her “drive” and “passion” but was her evolving into a better and sharper version of herself.
She added, “The point is. Everything that’s going to come is already in motion. All I have to do is enjoy. Be grateful and reap the benefits of those that came before me, all the sacrifices, all the prayers and all the power to be intentional and at EASE.”
The actress then concluded the post with a comment joking about her baby moving in her belly, saying, “btw this baby moving thing is weirdddddd.”
Keke Palmer Announced She Was Pregnant In December
Palmer revealed that she was expecting her first child with her boyfriend while hosting Saturday Night Live last December.
During her monologue, the “Akeelah and the Bee” star told the viewers that she wanted to clear the air around rumors that she was pregnant.
“I want to set the record straight,” she said at the time, then unbuttoned her long brown blazer, which she wore for the occasion, to reveal a baby bump.
She then exclaimed, “I am!” and threw her hands onto her growing baby belly while the audience applauded.
Shortly after Palmer dropped the news, Jackson took to social media to reveal he was the father as he uploaded a picture of the actress cradling her baby bump.
He captioned the post with “2023” alongside a red heart emoji. Palmer and Jackson confirmed they were in a relationship ship in August 2021 but have stayed away from the media spotlight since then.
