Another photo is a selfie of baby Leo, which looks like was taken by him! He leans over the camera with his curious brown eyes looking into the screen. The bottom half of his face is cut off, but you can see the curly brown hair that fills his head. “All forehead,” Palmer joked.

The last picture of baby Leo was taken at a playground surrounded by gorgeous palm trees. The “Ungorgeous” singer wears jeans, white sneakers, and a white t-shirt with her hair up in a ponytail. She holds Leo up in the air, showing off his cute white t-shirt, green pineapple-print shorts, and brown sandals. They look like they are having the time of their lives in this precious moment.

“I never loved anything I popped out my butt so much! 🥹” Palmer quipped in the caption. (Hey, she’s not wrong!)

“Not the cute little chunky chunk!” one person commented. Someone else wrote, “It’s LEO in the camera for me 😂😂”

Another way the Nope star likes to spend time with her only child? By taking him on vacation! In a new interview with Travel + Leisure, she shared that her son is a littler traveler. “My son has been going on jets since he was born,” she told the outlet. “I mean, he’s had a better life start than me, honestly!”

To “make sure that he’s comfortable,” the Password host brings a nanny and/or one of her aunts along with them. “I want to make sure my son is well supported and also has a lot of love around them and we have a good time, especially as a single parent,” she said. “It just takes more time and consideration to make sure that we have a good time.”

Earlier this year, she took a break from work to go on a vacation with her family. “It was the first time in a long time that my entire family and I did something together,” Palmer said. “It was a transformative trip with all six of us and my best friend being there together — and my son as well. He’s the newest family member.”

She added, “It was just an amazing feeling to be able to look at each other and just say, ‘Man, I’m so glad that we are all here.’ We love each other, we are taking time to appreciate one another, and do something fun with each other because sometimes you can take your family for granted. I think it set the tone for my 2024.” What a beautiful outlook!

Leo is lucky to have Palmer has his mama!
