The Hustlers actress—who welcomed her and Darius Jackson‘s son Leodis Andrellton Jackson seven months ago—recently shared words of encouragement to other moms struggling to feel like themselves after having a baby.
“Do you, new moms,” she told The Cut in an interview published July 10. “Do you. Girl, if there’s one person on this earth that loves you for sure, it’s that baby. Be happy, because there’s no love like it. Somebody loving you like that, hell, who cares?”
Becoming a mother had unlocked a side of Keke she didn’t even know she had inside of her.
“After having my baby, I’ve just gotten so much more powerful,” she explained. “I’m just so strengthened in a crazy way. Strutting my stuff, enjoying. I’ll be honest, I think before I even had the baby, I was really actually quite self-conscious. In a way that you would expect, considering the kind of work that I do as a public figure.”
