Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson's baby shower was straight out of a storybook.

The fairytale-themed event took place over the weekend, as the actress and her beau gathered with family and friends for the intimate occasion.

The mama-to-be looked absolutely gorgeous, donning a shimmery tan ribbed bodycon dress with matching heeled knee-high boots and dainty gold jewelry. For beauty, she wore her hair up into a loose bun with side-swept bangs and kept it neutral with soft glam makeup. Jackson perfectly complimented his lady, opting for an ensemble with varying hues of beige, brown, tan and cream.

Keke took to Instagram on Jan. 29 to share some captures from the function with her 12 million followers, crediting Los Angeles-based photographer D. Adams for the collection of sweet snaps.

"'A long time ago, in a land not so far… The King and Queen got together to play. The play turned to love as many sunsets passed by. Now there’s a prince, who’s soon to arrive!' 💙🙏🏾" she captioned the post.

Earlier in the day, the Nope star also uploaded a video from the event, showcasing the beautiful decor and other details, including games and food, as Beyoncé's Homecoming remix of "Before I Let Go" played over the clip.

"Thank you soooo much @coterie for making this beautiful baby shower possible. And to you @whambamevents for helping bring to life this fairytale of mine," she opened the caption, adding that it was a night she'll "never forget."

Palmer added: "I’m really just so so happy for my family and my baby shower for me and @dvulton more than anything was about celebrating the people we love that have carried us this far!!! We know they will be so good to our baby boy. 🥰😍🥹😅"

Between the two social media posts, love poured into the comment sections from far and wide as fans and friends sent well wishes to the parents-to-be.
