Keke Palmer confirms she is expecting on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live. Fans of the actress were already convinced that she was pregnant after they noticed a visible belly button and her cryptic Instagram post.
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 exclaimed, ripping open a long gray jacket to reveal her growing baby bump on the Studio 8H stage.
"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. I mean, like, I was trying so hard to keep it on the down low cause I got a lot of stuff going on, you know?" she continued. "... But honestly, this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited. Guys, I'm going to be a mom."
Palmer added: "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."
The actress, 29, is pregnant and expecting her first baby with boyfriend Darius Jackson.
Internet sleuths spotted Keke's belly button sticking out after the 29-year-old actress posted a Halloween-themed TikTok video on Thursday, October 27. In the footage, she dons a striped red, white and black sweater that looks pretty baggy on the stomach area.
Keke's belly button appears to stick out when making some moves to avoid Ghostface. Generally, most pregnant women's belly buttons pop out because their uterus has significantly grown to make room for the baby.
In the comment section of Keke's TikTok post, many noticed Keke's appearance changes. "Just announce this pregnancy," one person wrote. Another quipped, "Save you and the baby Ke runnnnnnnnnn."
"Keke, let these ppl know you will announce your pregnancy when you are ready," someone else commented. A separate person said, "Yeah, the pregnancy is too obvious at this point."
Another TikTok user added, "I'm gonna say I think she is. I live in oversized sweaters, they give a chic cool girl look, but this sweater is for hiding a belly…." In the meantime, another suggested that Keke may be pregnant with "a boy baby," pointing out Keke's so-called pregnancy glow.
