VIDEO: Keke Palmer announces she’s pregnant on SNL as she expecting first baby with boyfriend, Darius Jackson

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Keke Palmer announces she’s pregnant on SNL.

Keke Palmer is going to be a mom! The 29-year-old actress kicked off her Saturday Night Live debut by announcing her pregnancy and revealing her adorable baby bump on the Studio 8H stage. 

Palmer hosted the Dec. 3 episode -- her first-ever turn in the role -- alongside musical guest SZA. She took the stage for her monologue wearing an tight-fitting blazer that seemingly tried to hide her baby bump -- but she used the platform to announce her exciting baby news.

"I'm especially glad to be here, though, because 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," she declared while simultaneously pulling open her jacket and revealing her baby bump.

"This has been the biggest blessing. I'm going to be a mom! Even though some people feel a little weird about me having a baby because I was a child actor. Look, I'm 29, I'm grown, I have sex, a own a home, I stormed the capitol on January 6th, you know, things adults do!" she joked.

The notoriously private actress and media personality has been previously linked to rapper Meek Mill and Brotherly Love co-star Quincy Brown. More recently, she dated Darius Jackson, also known as Darius Daulton, the younger brother of Insecure and Good Trouble star Sarunas J. Jackson. 

The couple went public with their romance when Jackson dedicated a sweet birthday post to the Scream Queens actress on Instagram. 

"You've been a blessing from above," he wrote at the time. "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 subsequently shared a photo of the duo on her Instagram account, cementing their official status. However, rumors circulated that the couple ended their relationship in March 2022 when they unfollowed each other on Instagram and removed photos of one another on their pages. Neither has spoken out about their relationship since.

Palmer has been keeping herself booked and busy, kicking off a podcast, Baby, This Is Keke Palmer, while also scoring new roles and launching her own digital TV network. She'll definitely have her hands full when she adds mom to her growing list of accomplishments.

Congratulations to the new mom-to-be! Palmer has mainly kept details of her relationship with Jackson under wraps. When appearing on The Tamron Hall Show last November, she opened up about becoming "Instagram official" with Jackson, though the photos with her boyfriend are no longer on her page.

"It became more difficult to hide," she said of choosing to post photos with Jackson at the time. "We spend all this time together, and he really is my closest friend, so it just becomes a thing where I'm not gonna hide something that makes me happy."

"It's not gonna be everything you see, my job is my job, but at the end of the day this is somebody that is important to me so why not," Palmer added.

"I've always been somebody that hasn't wanted too much industry stuff in my life, he's very industry-adjacent, meaning he understands it but that's not what he's about," she explained.

That same month, the Nope star shared a video on TikTok with Jackson in which she held up a fan to seemingly hide her and her boyfriend kissing. "Lady miss takes what she WANTS😏," she wrote with the clip.

In March 2020, Palmer spoke to Harper's Bazaar about why she likes to keep her dating life private.

"I don't really do relationship stuff online, mainly because I don't know how I would do it without looking, like, cheesy or something, you know?" she told the outlet. "Yes, I'm a hundred percent authentic, but there is stuff that I do save for family and friends."
