1. Keke Palmer welcomes her 1st child

Baby, this is Keke Palmer, a first-time mom. The Nope star has welcomed her first child with Darius Jackson, a boy named Leodis Andrellton Jackson. "Hey Son!!!!" she wrote on Instagram, noting he was "born during Black History Month, with a name to match." Palmer famously revealed her pregnancy by showing off her baby bump during a Saturday Night Live monologue in December. After "only 48hrs of being parents," she shared a batch of adorable photos on Instagram with Jackson and their newborn son, writing, "Welcome to the world baby Leo." She also responded to a fan on Twitter who said that her son's name kind of makes him sound like he "led a civil rights march," with Palmer joking, "It's giving I marched with Martin, purrrr." Congratulations to this woman.
