Keke talked about her PCOS struggles

Long before she announced her pregnancy, Palmer told Ricky Smiley that she definitely wanted to be a mother at some point in her life.

In August 2019, Keke said in an interview,

“I don’t want to have kids too later on because I definitely want to be able to get that snap back,” 

“But at the same time, I don’t really want to have a kid just yet.”

The next year, the Akeelah and the Bee star found out that she was suffering from PCOS, a hormonal disorder that causes females to have excess hair growth, obesity, and infertility.

In December 2022, Palmer opened up about how the disorder was attacking her entire life and discussed about her acne struggles.

Keke told her fans,

“My acne has been so bad that people in my field offered to pay for me to get it fixed,”

“I tried EVERYTHING. I did all that, I ate all the ‘right’ things, my blood tests were fine.

She concluded,

“It took ME taking a personal look into my family that has a history of diabetes and obesity to understand what was ACTUALLY happening with me,”

The actress often slams those who troll her skin and call her ugly on social media.

At the time, Palmer tweeted,

“I’m beautiful in real life, because of who I am, not what I look like,”

“Truly it’s insane to say anyone is ugly, but especially me.”
