Keke Palmer Monologue

Keke Palmer announced some very exciting news during her Saturday Night Live hosting debut on December 3: She's pregnant! 

How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.  

During her opening monologue, Palmer said, “People have been in my comments saying ‘Keke is having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I want to set the record straight: I am!” She then revealed her baby bump while the audience roared with cheers and applause.  

“I got to say, though, it is bad when people on the internet spread rumors about you, but it's even worse when they’re correct!” she exclaimed with a smile on her face. “I mean, I was trying so hard to keep it on the down low because I got a lot of stuff going on. People kept coming up to me [saying], ‘Congratulations,’ I’m like, 'Can y’all stop? I got a liquor sponsorship on the line. Let the check clear, then we can get to the damn baby shower!'” she said.

“But honestly, this has been the biggest blessing. And I am so excited. I wanna be a mom!” she continued. “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 6th. you know, things adults do." 

Congratulations, Keke!
