"We became each other's someone and made a someone, look at God!" Palmer wrote.
A household of three is made up of Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson! The 29-year-old Emmy Award winner and her husband welcomed a boy on Monday whom they called Leodis "Leo" Andrellton. After welcoming their newborn son, the mom of 48 hours eagerly posted some of their first family pictures on Instagram, per PEOPLE. "Hey Son!!!!" Palmer wrote. "Born during Black History Month, with a name to match! LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world baby Leo," she added.
She included a picture of the pair in the first slide to show how they appear after "only 48hrs of being parents!" The song Someone by El Debarge was included in some playlists for Jackson and her when they first began dating, so she sang it to him in the car in the following slide. "We became each other's someone and made a someone, look at God!" Palmer wrote.
Palmer also posted some images of their three-person family in the hospital after giving birth, including close-ups of the child's face. "'I'm not hiding the world from my son, I'm hiding my son from the world.' Hahaha," she wrote, adding, "I'm just playing, my baby face is on this slide ... And this slide."
The Nope actress, who had her first child with Jackson, a fitness instructor, and former college football player, first announced her pregnancy in December as she made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live. "There are some rumors 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!" Palmer exclaimed during her opening monologue, as she unbuttoned her long jacket with complete swagger, showing her baby bump!
"Honestly this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited. Guys, I'm going to be a mom." Palmer added, per PEOPLE, "Even though some people feel a little weird about me having a baby cause I was a child actor, I just wanna say, look, I'm 29, I'm grown, I have sex, I own a home, I stormed the Capitol on January 6, you know? Things adults do."
Details of the Hustlers actress's relationship with Jackson have largely remained a secret. She discussed going "Instagram official" with Jackson when she appeared on The Tamron Hall Show in November of last year, though the official post pictures of the two of them are no longer on her page. "It became more difficult to hide," she said of choosing to post photos with Jackson at the time. "We spend all this time together, and he really is my closest friend, so it just becomes a thing where I'm not gonna hide something that makes me happy."
Palmer expressed excitement for the upcoming stage in her pregnancy when she shared exclusive pictures of her Once Upon a Time-themed baby shower with PEOPLE in January. "I can't wait to hold my little one," Palmer exclaimed. Palmer continued, "I am counting the minutes until I get to meet him and start learning about this human I helped create."
