Keke Palmer is bringing out the delight in motherhood, and fans can’t handle the cuteness!
As we all know, caring for a child is an around-the-clock job, but the first-time mom is making the experience graceful and lighthearted for her millions of Instagram followers. The 29-year-old, who welcomed her son on February 25th with her boyfriend, Darius Daulton, took the time to record a sweet video that brightened the day of many viewers.
In the recent update, the five-time NAACP Image Awards winner affectionately takes on the “It’s A Wrap” challenge going viral on TikTok, with baby Leo, who looked no less adorable as he moved his hands around.
Keke Palmer Spends Quality Time With Her Baby Boy
On Instagram, the former child star shared a precious clip featuring her ten-day-old baby. In it, the mother of one rocked a body-wrap towel, a clean face, a messy bun, and an aqua-blue, big-framed eyewear. On the other hand, the newborn donned a white and orange onesie with a blue skull cap.
As the video transitions between the mother and son, Palmer enwraps her tiny tot in his blanket and sings the lyrics to the viral Mariah Carey song. At the end of the upload, the doting mother gives her wrapped child a comforting kiss on the mouth.
The “Barbershop 2: Back in Business” actress captioned the video with, “It’s a WRAAAAP for my baaaaby 😅😍.” As expected, fans and friends were pleased with the uniqueness of the reel and expressed their excitement in the comments.
Her friend, Tamar Braxton, remarked, “Sooo yummy friend ❤️❤️🔥🔥.” One follower praised her for looking like her authentic self, “love how she looks a mess cause we really be looking like that 😩🤣.”
A third fan wrote, “I’m so happy for you friend enjoy every moment of motherhood until they get 9 with a bad attitude 🤣💯💯.” “Tooo cute!! I love motherhood on you !!! ❤️🥰🏾,” a fourth fan penned. Meanwhile, a fifth fan commented, “So damn sweet. Enjoy every single moment ❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
Since the “Joyful Noise” actress first announced her pregnancy in December 2022 during her “Saturday Night Live” host monologue, the media personality appears to be rocking the motherhood role so well.
However, in this era of social media, it doesn’t matter how you keep to yourself or don’t bother anyone; some internet users would still drop unsolicited comments, especially when it involves a celebrity. That was precisely what went down 48 hours fresh from giving birth.
The Blast noticed that few mom-shamers had not-so-nice things to say when she announced her son was named LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON. One particular user tweeted, “That name sound like it led a civil rights March.” The talented singer responded with a classy yet firm clap back in no time.
The 29-year-old wrote, “It’s giving I marched with Martin [Luther King Jr.], purr.” Also, she wrote in the caption of her IG announcement. “Born during Black History Month, with a name to match 😄!”
Keke Palmer & BF Darius Daulton Assemble Son’s Crib
Before the arrival of their son, the “Shrink” actress and her baby daddy put together his crib, and it was a soothing effect on many viewers. The Blast noted that Daulton posted an extensive video of the duo putting efforts together to build a wooden crib.
The couple dressed casually and appeared to be setting up the bed in a dressing room that housed the “Akeelah and the Bee” actress’s shoes and bag. When they were done, the then father-to-be placed the crib against the wall and subconsciously gave a ‘daddy pose.’ In the caption, the proud father wrote:
“Some behind the scenes from building our 1st crib.”
Palmer represented her excitement with a clap and teary-eyed emoji while his social media admirers flooded the post with compliments for the crib’s preparation. One commentator wrote, “Lot of hard work but it’s worth it 💪🏻.” Another follower noted, “GREAT JOB 👏🏽 I AM SO HAPPY FOR THE BOTH OF YOU.”
At the same time, a third fan remarked, “That’s so nice get the realness of the experience instead of paying someone to do it.” “Eeeeeee seriouslv soooo excited for you both!!! 🎊 🙏🏽. that baby is going to be very blessed 🙏🏽❤️,” a fourth fan penned.
