Keke Palmer has made attempts to ward off the pregnancy rumours plaguing her Instagram comment section as of late. As of her stint on Saturday Night Live last night (December 3), though, the 29-year-old is ready to admit defeat and finally share the big news with the world – she’s going to be a mom.

“There’s some rumours going around. People have been in my comments saying ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’” she said to the audience in New York City. “I want to set the record straight — I am,” she went on before turning to the side to show off her budding bump.

“But honestly this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited guys — I’m gonna be a mom!”

As Page Six notes, the Illinois native’s fans first began speculating she was with child last month. At the time, she wore an extravagant Carolina Herrera gown to the CFSA awards with a strategically placed belt, hoping (and somewhat failing) to hide her bump.

Palmer also gushed about her beau back in March during an interview with Bustle, saying “This is the happiest I’ve ever felt with someone.”

“So why would I go out of my way to hide this person?” she continued. “That’s a lot more work than just living in my life and being in my life.”
