Keke Palmer has been linked to a handful of famous figures romantically throughout her long-spanning career, including Quincy Brown, YG, and Ty Dolla $ign. While she didn't have much luck finding the love of her dreams in those partnerships, the 29-year-old has since settled down with Darius Jackson, who she began dating in 2021. After a little more than a year together, the True Jackson VP actress became pregnant with their first child, who was born earlier this year.

Prior to little Leodis' conception, Palmer kept her romance mostly quiet, though everything she's said about her co-parent has been incredibly positive. While awaiting her due date, she slowly began sharing more of their life together, revealing that her goofy personality is perfectly matched by his charm. Now that they've stepped into parenthood, Jackson and his girl have been publicly documenting many of their adventures, as well as the noteworthy changes they've experienced since starting this new chapter. For Keke, one of the biggest things has been changes to her body, which both she and Darius are obviously loving.

The Chicago native previously bragged about her naturally enhanced breasts and behind in an IG post, but now, it's Leodis' father's turn to marvel at her beauty. "My son [done] transformed @keke," Jackson wrote on his Story on Saturday (April 29). In the accompanying video, we see Palmer standing in a cheetah-print jumpsuit, back turned to her man as she casually shakes her booty for him. "Y'all see this work?" he proudly asked as his partner laughed and continued munching on a snack.

The footage came after the lovers made their red carpet debut with Leo at the screening of the Disney alum's upcoming project. KP celebrated with a commemorative photo dump of her own on Sunday, expressing plenty of gratitude for everyone involved in the caption. "So happy that my LO was able to attend, being with him is all that’s ever on my mind. He is also my BBL doctor because honey this body???! Don’t talk to me. I’m different now! I’s a woman hahahahahaha," she also joked in the post. Are you looking forward to Keke Palmer's Big Boss visual album?
