On March 30, the Password host shared the most precious clip of her 1-year-old son, Leo, saying ''mama.'' In the video, Palmer is in a costume with fake blood on her face, holding her mini-me. She teases Leo for pretending to be shy, then jokingly asks him is she looks good with the fake blood on her face. 

''Mama,'' Leo responds in the sweetest baby voice. Palmer's jaw then drops, and her eyes widen. 

''I’m not crying YOU ARE,'' she captioned the post. 

In the comments, actress Brittney Elena asked "Was this the first time?" and Palmer responded, "Saying it so clear yes!"

Leo turned 1 on February 26, to which Palmer posted the most devoted Instagram shoutout. In the pictures, we get to see Palmer giving Leo kisses while she pushes him on a swing, holding him while he blows raspberries, and more. 

"You make my life so worth living. If I’m being honest I have always teeter tottered with life. I have just always been so annoyed by it and the ups and the downs and it has always seemed so painful for trivial reasons. Things could be so simple and they’re not and that always gave me a bitter feeling. But since you my son, I have no confusion on why I am here! On my purpose or my value or why I should stay. I wanna stay for you. I want to be here to love and protect you and watch you be the good in this world!" she wrote on the post.
