Keke Palmer Reflects on the “Sense of Freedom” That Comes With Being a Mom

Keke Palmer gave birth to her son back in February, and motherhood sure looks good on her! The actress and singer opened up about motherhood during a recent fan event and revealed that having a child boosted her confidence and gave her a sense of freedom.

Palmer spoke on stage at the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. at the “Big Boss: Empowering Yourself to Create the Life You Want” event, and had a thing or two to say about being a mom. She told the audience that giving birth has given her “an ease and a comfortability and a love” for herself that she never felt before.

“It just gave me a sense of freedom that I can’t describe, where I’m not afraid, because it’s like, this is what I have, this is who I am… I never would have imagined that my son would have given me such a deep confidence and empowerment,” she explained.

Palmer also jokingly told the audience she loves being a mom so much that she’ll probably have 12 kids, adding she enjoys being goofy around her baby boy and making him laugh.

Palmer revealed her pregnancy while hosting Saturday Night Live last year and welcomed baby boy Leodis “Leo” Andrellton with her partner Darius Jackson back in February.
