The sweetest tiny dance partner belongs to Keke Palmer who recently shared a cute video with her son. The 29-year-old American television personality danced about to Slide by Sada Baby while holding her 5-week-old son Leodis "Leo" Andrellton on her chest and shared the moment on Instagram. The video shows the Emmy award winner having fun dancing to music as her baby stoically gazes and appears to be in deep thought.
She and her partner, Darius Jackson, announced the birth of their first child in February on Instagram as Palmer wrote, "Hey Son!!!! Born during Black History Month, with a name to match! LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world, baby Leo. Darius always made me playlists when we first started dating, Someone by El Debarge was a favorite. We became each other's someone and made someone, look at God!"
The adorable video of the mother-son duo was loved by fans across the platform. The video was captioned, "And to think! Just last April Fools I 'joked' about being preggers … we manifested you, little buddy!" Palmer continued in the caption, "I love hanging with you and you just be looking crazy like a caveman. 🤣😍😘 He [is] already tired of me."
The Hustlers actor made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live in December when she first announced her pregnancy and said she was having her first child with Jackson, a fitness trainer, and former college football player. The actor revealed then that "some rumors are 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!" During her introductory address, Palmer gasped as she unbuttoned her long jacket to show off her growing baby bulge.
Palmer previously told PEOPLE she "can't wait to hold my little one" as she shared some exclusive photos of her 'Once Upon A Time' themed baby shower that took place in January. Post the announcement made by the excited mum, the baby made an amazing entry on her social media platforms. In her previous Instagram post, the new mother is seen walking her baby out in the pram. As she wrote about how motherhood feels. “Took Mookie Mook for a stroll today!! Mommy’ing is coming along if you were looking for an update. I have juggled quite a few careers but this is my greatest gig of all,” she wrote.
“Learning how to balance it all and looking forward to discovering this new person I am becoming,” added the Nope star. She continued in the caption writing, “I will never be the same again, but if you thought I was a bad mama jamma before, you can’t imagine the greater purpose my son has given my life!” She further added, "Also, loving the new world I get to indulge in now as a mom."
