Pregnant Keke Palmer accidentally reveals her first child’s gender on The Tonight Show


During a late-night chat with Jimmy Fallon on Jan. 25, Keke Palmer revealed that she and boyfriend Darius Jackson will soon welcome a son together.

“My baby is either going to be a Pisces or Aries,” Keke told the Tonight Show host of her bundle of joy’s astrological sign. “Pieces 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.”

After slyly revealing her baby’s sex, Keke hilariously explained that sometimes she can be very “tell it like it is.” However, with a pending Pieces on the horizon, the 29-year-old said she needs to “wade in the water” to “keep it chill.”

Keke’s update comes almost two months after she announced her pregnancy while hosting Saturday Night Live. “There’s some rumors going around, people have been in my comments saying, ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I wanna set the record straight—I am!” she said during her opening monologue on Dec. 3 before unbuttoning her coat to show off her bare bump. “I gotta say, though, it is bad when people on the internet spread rumors about you, but it’s even worse when they’re correct.”

She continued, “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? But honestly this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited. Guys, I’m going to be a mom.”

Following her appearance on the show, Keke Palmer shared a post reflecting on her journey.

“This year has taken me for a ride!” she wrote on Instagram Dec. 4. “And how cool, my baby and I are already doing it all together. Thank you God! Thank you to my amazing parents and family who continuously support me.”


Keke Palmer also thanked Darius, who she called her “other half,” for “giving me the things that only true unity can bring.”

She concluded her note, “Love is all we have isn’t it, you do nothing in this world alone and trust me, I am not alone! Very grateful… Happy Holidays!”
