“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 actress said while showing off her baby bump by opening up her blazer.
The audience roared after Palmer’s reveal.
“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 honestly this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited guys — I’m gonna be a mom!”
Palmer admitted that rumors took flight after filming the Jordan Peele hit movie, “Nope” and when she attended the CFDA awards glowing in a Carolina Herrera ballgown, folks got a little suspicious and fans alluded to her likely hiding something.
Palmer”s been dating her beau Darius Jackson since 2021, and the two have kept their relationship on the low.
Back in August 2021, Jackson made a declaration of his love for Palmer and credited her for their tight bond.
“You’ve been a blessing from above,” Jackson captioned a since-deleted Instagram post.
“Never would have expected summer 2021 to turn out the way it did, but here we are,” he continued. “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.”
Congrats lil’ mama!
