Keke Palmer appears to be super happy as she shared an adorable video on Instagram of her dancing with her nine-month-old son on Tuesday. In the clip, the first-time mother lovingly holds and twirls her baby boy to a song, seemingly in a backstage holding area.

In the Instagram video, Palmer can be seen dressed in a black tank top and pin-striped pants, holding baby Leo in her arms. Leo, on the other hand, sported a white T-shirt and black shorts. Palmer, 30, also dedicated a heartwarming love letter in the caption of the post for her son Leo, who she shares with Darius Jackson.

Keke Palmer’s love letter to Baby Leo

“Steppin’ w/my boy..” the ‘Bigg Boss’ star captioned the sweet mother and son moment. “Leo!!! You bring me so much joy my son!! Mommy waited so long for you and you were certainly worth the wait.”

“I can’t wait until you’re older and we can go to the movies together, camp, improv, binge tv shows, cook and all the other endless things I dream of doing with you,” she continued. 

“I have experienced so many things before and after your birth, which is why I can say undoubtably that your love has made me unstoppable,” Palmer went on. “Nothing can beat me because I have you by my side. You are the love of my life ..”

Palmer concluded her post by joking that she’s raising her son well, just in case his future mother-in-law happens to be in the comments. “Your Queen’s momma might be somewhere in these comments hahaha. I’m raising him right miss girl,” she wrote.

Palmer explains the meaning behind Leo’s name

Palmer, who welcomed Leodis Andrellton on February 25, revealed the meaning behind his name during an episode of her podcast, ‘Baby, This is Keke Palmer’. 

“We’re not saying the name, but the name for us — it gives American,” she said at the time, as per Essence. “It gives Black American storyline. We want it to just be like — we’re not going for anything too unique. It’s not about to be Stone and Sand. It’s just like a nice natural [name].”
