The rumors are true! Actress Keke Palmer has officially announced that she’s having a baby!
Palmer, 29, has been on fire this year, starring in Jordan Peele’s NOPE and being nominated for a People’s Choice Award among many others. And as many fans agree — as she should!
According to people.com, the multi-talented Robbins, IL, native is expecting her first child with boyfriend Darius Jackson (Darius Daulton on IG). Palmer likes to keep her private life on the down low, but after rumors surfaced about her pregnancy, she shared the news excitedly during her Saturday Night Live monologue last night. The cast even found a way to work the baby bump in some of the comedy skits.
“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 proceeded to open her long suit jacket and flash her growing baby bump (a nod to Beyonce’s first pregnancy reveal).
Congratulations to Keke Palmer! We’re excited for her motherhood journey and can’t wait to see her continued success.
