Congratulations should be given to Keke Palmer!
The star of Nope made her long-awaited Saturday Night Live debut last night, and she kicked off her hosting duties with a very legendary introduction. During her monologue, the multihyphenate made the unexpected announcement that she is pregnant with her first child.
Palmer addressed recent pregnancy rumors after approaching the stage in an all-brown ensemble consisting of a long suit coat, button-down top, and frayed pants.
“There are rumors circulating, and people have been stating in my comments, ‘Keke is pregnant, Keke is having a kid,’ and I want to set the record right – I am!” She revealed her bump by opening her coat.
“I must admit, however, that it’s horrible when people propagate rumors about you on the internet, but it’s even worse when they’re true. I mean, I was trying so hard to keep everything under wraps because I had so much going on, you know?” She persisted.
“But in all honesty, this has been the greatest blessing, and I am ecstatic. Guys, I’m becoming a mother! “She stated,
Fans have compared the Hustlers actress’s declaration to Beyoncé’s 2011 VMAs reveal, in which she unbuttoned her suit jacket to show she was pregnant with Blue Ivy.
Palmer and her fiance Darius Daulton are expecting a child. The couple made their relationship public for the first time in October 2021, however, they have largely kept their relationship private. Previously, the actress explained to BAZAAR.com why she prefers to keep her personal life secret.
“I don’t undertake relationship-related activities online because I don’t know how to do it without appearing, like, cheesy or whatever, you know?” She stated, “Yes, I am 100 percent genuine, although I do save some items for family and friends.”
