"Whew chile! These mosquitoes done had they way with my eye, I feel like I was in that Martin episode 🤣🤣🤣," she wrote in the caption. "I have never been so happy in my life!! Already 2024 has started off on the vibes I was looking for, more experiences and more enjoying what this beautiful world has to offer. Look at my smile! I don’t even recognize me!

Keke Palmer on being a mom

Palmer sure must be enjoying her getaway, as she became a mom in February 2023, welcoming baby Leodis "Leo" Andrellton. A month after the baby was born, Palmer took to Instagram to open up about what being a mother means to her. 

"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," Palmer wrote, sharing snapshots of her pushing the baby in a stroller. "Learning how to balance it all and looking forward to discovering this new person I am becoming. 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!"

“People have been in my comments saying ‘Keke is having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I want to set the record straight: I am!” she said during her opening monologue

“I got to say, though, it is bad when people on the internet spread rumors about you, but it's even worse when they’re correct! I mean, I was trying so hard to keep it on the down low because I got a lot of stuff going on. People kept coming up to me [saying], ‘Congratulations,’ I’m like, 'Can y’all stop? I got a liquor sponsorship on the line. Let the check clear, then we can get to the damn baby shower!'” she added.
