Keke Palmer Finally Opens Up On How She Found Out Being Pregnant For The First Time
American actress and singer, Keke Palmer, has opened up on how she found out she was pregnant for the first time.
Interestingly, the 29-year-old actress indicated that the pregnancy news was broken to her by Darius Jackson, her boyfriend.
She revealed this on the latest episode of her Baby, this is Keke Palmer podcast—of which she was joined by her partner.
“I’m feeling good. I always told myself definitely by 28 I would love to be pregnant, or at least focusing on something like this. I was like, open to it like.
“Good partner, feeling really good. And so, I was like, you know what? I feel like maybe that, maybe that I am. So, I took the test, and it came back negative. I didn’t have the lines on there, so I just threw it in the trash. I just threw it in the trash.”
Keke added: “And so I go out with Nora and we’re at like, this semi-casual business dinner, but we’re having some little sake and enjoying ourselves, and all of a sudden, I get a text from Darius, and he says, ‘When did you take this?’ And it’s a picture of the pregnancy test and it’s positive.”
“I didn’t wait long enough! And I’m like, ‘I took that earlier today, like literally just some hours before I left out.’ And he said, ‘Well, you better get to be drinking water in your sight. Cause I’m buying 10 of these things right now. You take them all when you get home,'” she shared. “Soon as I come home, I, and I’m also not kidding, as soon as I come home, me and him, I do 10 of ’em back-to-back, back-to-back, to back, to back-to-back. All positive.”
Though some people were surprised about her pregnancy after she debuted her baby bump on Saturday Night Live in December, the famous actress has clarified that the pregnancy was planned.
“My baby was definitely planned. It wasn’t like we sat on the chalkboard and wrote some stuff out, but…we were definitely like, moving in the vibe of definitely no surprise,” Palmer elucidated.
Keke and Jackson are yet to talk about a name they will give to the baby.
“We’re not saying the name, but the name for us — it gives American. It gives Black American storyline. We want it to just be like — we’re not going for anything too unique. It’s not about to be Stone and Sand,” Palmer stressed. “It’s just like a nice natural. No aesthetic baby.”
Following her appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, she subtly disclosed the s€x of their baby.
“Pisces are known to be very deep, they’re emotional creatures. So, I just want to make sure I’m not too blunt for my baby boy,” she stated while talking about astrological signs.
Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson were at a tropical destination for a romantic babymoon recently.
“This season I am going to learn how to really take it easy. how to go slow (or slower than I have which is speedy for the average ♍️) because it definitely doesn’t mean my drive and passion will end, just transform and evolve through a different tool,” Palmer wrote on Instagram.
She further posted photos and videos of their fairytale themed-baby shower earlier this week, and a maternity shoot of her and Jackson as they anticipate the arrival of their baby boy.
“A long time ago, in a land not so far…The King and Queen got together to play. The play turned to love as many sunsets passed by. Now there’s a prince, who’s soon to arrive! 💙🙏🏾,” she captioned the photo slideshow.
