Actress Keke Palmer responded to social media users mocking her baby son’s full grown name.
Keke, 29, welcomed her first child, named Leodis Andrellton Jackson, with aspiring actor Darius Jackson.
Unlike other first-time celebrity moms who hide their newborn’s faces, Keke posted photos of her adorable baby boy on Instagram on Monday.
She captioned her post:
“Only 48hrs of being parents! Born during Black History Month, with a name to match!
LEODIS ANDRELLTON JACKSON, welcome to the world baby Leo.”
The jokes about her son’s first name began immediately.
Sandrarose.com‘s Roses even joked about the innocent baby in the Rose garden — where children are off-limits.
Keke responded to the mockery by cracking her own joke about her son.
She retweeted a post that read: “That name [sounds] like it led a civil rights march.”
The ‘Nope’ actress responded: “It’s giving I marched with Martin, purrrr.”
It’s giving I marched with Martin, purrrr. https://t.co/gxoL6mGSZY
