Congratulations are in order!

We previously reported that while on ‘SNL’ during her opening monologue, Palmer teased that there were “some rumors going around, people have been in my comments saying, ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant.’” She then opened her coat and revealed her growing baby bump.

“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.”

“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.”

Keke shared a series of photos from her recent Maternity shoot. She captioned the photos, “Its giving POETRY, it’s giving MICHAEL ANGELO, it’s giving SISTINE CHAPEL,” she wrote on Instagram. “It’s giving MASTERPIECE.”

The caption continued, “behold, a mother, a father and the blessed baby we await in pure awe. The greatest gift from above we could ever dream. we can’t wait to meet you little one! we are so glad to be your earth parents as God’s hands are placed so gently over your life. ”

She then thanked Nicki Minaj for connecting her with the legendary photographer for the shoot. “Thank you so much @nickiminaj for connecting me to @david_lachapelle and making this happen! thank you @diandretristan for helping with everything. from this photoshoot to the baby shower haha i love you so much friend!!!”
