Recently, actress and TV personality Keke Palmer shared some important advice on self-love on her Twitter.

"Life is not about getting everything right or coming out unscathed, but instead loving yourself while unlearning the things that were put in place for you to hate yourself," she wrote.

That moment of "self-actualization," as Keke called it, has seemingly allowed her to find love and not just self-love. The Hustler actress has a new boyfriend, and the couple went Instagram official on her birthday.

So, who is Keke Palmer's new boyfriend?

Meet Darius Jackson! According to MadameNoire, the couple met at a party at Diddy's house, and the athlete is the brother of Insecure actor Sarunas Jackson.

You’ve been a blessing from above & I thank you for showing me a lot of feelings I didn’t know I had in me & also seeing me as someone you can finally be yourself too," he wrote on Instagram.

Some of the couple's famous friends also jumped into the comment section with Karrueche sharing a heart emoji.

Before Darius, Keke has been linked to Elvin Jackson, and rapper Stijn Derksen (better known as Styn). She was also rumored to have dated her Brotherly Love costar, Quincy Brown.

Keke Palmer usually keeps her relationships off social media.

Darius' very public display of affection on the social media platform is a big deal for Keke, who usually keeps her love life very private.

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar in 2020, she admitted that she keeps her private life and work-life separate, and does not date anyone with the "same career."

"I don’t really do relationship stuff online, mainly because I don’t know how I would do it without looking, like, cheesy or something, you know?” she explained. “Yes, I’m a hundred percent authentic, but there is stuff that I do save for family and friends.”

She continued, “I do have a Finsta. Sometimes I forget to post on there, ’cause I do post a lot of real moments and raw moments on my main Instagram page. But at the same time, when it comes to romance, [posting about it] doesn’t really come naturally to me, so I feel like, why force it?"

Hopefully, this time around, Keke will make an exception and post about her boo on the 'gram.
