"A long time ago, in a land not so far…The King and Queen got together to play," she captioned the series.

Palmer's new curves were on display in a close-fitting beige ribbed maxi dress. The Nope actress also rocked a radiant makeup look and gold jewelry to set off her pregnancy glow. She further accessorized her look with tan high-heeled boots and an effortlessly messy big bun.
Jackson, who joined Palmer for some photos, coordinated his outfit with her nude color scheme. The two parents-to-be exchanged sweet gestures during their shoot: In one pic, Palmer rests her hand on her boyfriend's shoulder, while in another, he leans over to give her an affectionate kiss on the forehead.
