Keke Palmer is giving a shout out to all the single parents.
The 29-year-old actress, who just recently welcomed her first child – a baby boy with Darius Jackson, headed to social media to thank her “village” that’s supporting her as she navigates motherhood for the first time.
Keke also recognized that having that village around her was a privilege not afforded to others.

In the video, Keke called out the single parents of the world, saying that if you are one, to “pull out your cape. Matter fact, clip your angel wings. Because I don’t know how it is you did it.”
“I really don’t want this to sound pander-y or something like this, because I know there are a million and one reasons why somebody wants to be a single parent or becomes a single parent,” she went on in her video. “Maybe they lost somebody, maybe they don’t want to deal with somebody, maybe it’s a choice. But when it comes to raising a kid, I’ve already learned in these short few days that it takes a village. And sometimes that’s a privilege.”
Keke continued on her praise, saying that “I just want anybody out there that’s a single parent that’s been doing this — friends of mine, people that I don’t know, family members of mine — [know that] I really am, in my heart.”
“It brings tears to my eyes. I am just truly, profoundly impressed,” she paused and added.
