Surprise! During her “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut, Keke Palmer confirmed rumors that she’s pregnant. She’s awaiting her first baby with boyfriend Darius Jackson. Palmer expressed her excitement and showed off her baby bump. In a lighthearted monologue, she teased, “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.”
Fans couldn’t be happier for the star and took to Twitter to share their reactions. One user was thrilled the reveal happened on “SNL,” tweeting, “It’s one thing to see your crush pregnant. It’s another thing to see your crush announce her pregnancy while hosting the comedy show you always wanted to be on.” Another person wasn’t even aware that Palmer is taken, but was impressed nonetheless. They wrote, “The fact that someone like Keke Palmer could announce her pregnancy and we didn’t even know she had a man! Babyyyy, that’s a masterclass right there!” Congratulations, Keke!
