Keke Palmer is expecting her first child

Congratulations are in order to Keke Palmer who is expecting her first baby with her boyfriend Darius Jackson.

The actress announced the good news on Saturday Night Live. The actress appeared on the show where she publicly admitted:

“There’s some rumors going around. People have been in my comments saying ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I want to set the record straight — I am,” 

The 29-year-old then opened her blazer to reveal her growing baby bump.

The crowds went crazy and started cheering. The Nope star then added:

”You know, 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.”

”But honestyly this has been the biggest  blessing, and I am so excited guys- I’m gonna be a mom!”

Fans started speculating that Palmer was pregnant when she appeared at the CFDA awards this year wearing an extravagant Carolina Herrera ballgown. Many believed she was trying to hide her bump under the designer gown.

The actress wore matching thigh boots and a belt right above her midsection.

One fan joked:

”Whew keke that baby got you glowing, I’m ready to be a new T.T.

Another one added:

‘Baby on the wayyy!!”

“Just show us the bump 🤰🏾.”

He continued:

“Never would have expected summer 2021 to turn out the way it did, but here we are,”

“I’m glad we were able to help each other throughout our lowest of times & show one another that what we are bringing to the table is everything that we got.”

Palmer also has always been very vocal about her beau and in March,  in an interview with Bustle, the starlet said:

“This is the happiest I’ve ever felt with someone.”

She continued:

“So why would I go out of my way to hide this person?”

“That’s a lot more work than just living in my life and being in my life.”
