By Duchess Magazine

Popular Hollywood actress and TV Host, Keke Palmer took her audience by surprise after she ripped her jacket open to reveal her baby bump on her live show, Saturday Night Live – SNL, and officially announced she is going to be a mom!

The 29-year-old began by saying, “…there’s some rumors going around, people have been in my comments saying, ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I wanna set the record straight — I am!” Palmer exclaimed, ripping open a long jacket to reveal her growing baby bump on the Studio 8H stage.

“I gotta say, though, it is bad when people on the internet spread rumors about you y’all, but it’s even worse when they’re correct. I mean, like, I was trying so hard to keep it on the down low, cause I got a lot of stuff going on, you know?” she continued. “… But honestly this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited. Guys, I’m going to be a mom.”

“Even though some people feel a little weird about me having a baby cause I was a child actor, I just wanna say, look, I’m 29, I’m grown, I have sex, I own a home, I stormed the Capitol on January 6, you know? Things adults do,” she added.

The Akeelah and the Bee star who has mainly kept details of her relationship with her boyfriend, Darius Jackson under wraps, had opened up about becoming “Instagram official” with Jackson, when appearing on The Tamron Hall Show last November, though the photos with her boyfriend are no longer on her page.

“It became more difficult to hide. We spend all this time together, and he really is my closest friend, so it just becomes a thing where I’m not gonna hide something that makes me happy.”

“It’s not gonna be everything you see, my job is my job, but at the end of the day, this is somebody that is important to me so why not,” Palmer stated.

Speaking about Jackson, Palmer noted that he’s “very industry-adjacent.”

“I’ve always been somebody that hasn’t wanted too much industry stuff in my life, he’s very industry-adjacent, meaning he understands it but that’s not what he’s about,” she explained.

“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 told the outlet. “Yes, I’m a hundred percent authentic, but there is stuff that I do save for family and friends.”
