Saturday Night Live had a huge moment during the series finale when host Keke Palmer used her opening monologue to address some online rumors and confirm that she’s pregnant with her first child. The actress entered Studio 8H in a long coat to begin the episode and when she started talking about the scuttlebutt, she ripped the coat open to reveal her pregnant belly. “I was especially happy to be here, though, because rumors are going around,” said Palmer. “People said in my comments ‘Keke is having a baby, Keke is pregnant.’ And I want to set the record straight, that’s me!” Palmer then ripped open her jacket, a moment you can see below.
“I have to stay though, it’s bad when people spread rumors about you on the internet, but it’s even worse when they’re right,” she continued. “I tried so hard to keep it down because I’ve got a lot of things going on. People kept coming up to me, ‘Congratulations’, I’m like can you all stop, I’ve got a liquor sponsorship on the line. .. But honestly this has been the biggest blessing and I’m so excited guys I’m going to be a mom Even though some people think it’s weird that I’m having a baby because I was a child actor I just want to say I’m 29 , I’m an adult, I have sex, I have a house, I stormed the capital on January 6. You know, things grown-ups do.’

Will Keke Palmer Play Rogue in Marvel’s X-Men Reboot?
So far no real X-Men have been officially cast. Both Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman will return as Deadpool and Wolverine, respectively, during the events of Deadpool 3, but no official team for the inevitable Marvel Studios X-Men reboot has been revealed. Speaking to ComicBook.com earlier this month, Palmer said she’s ready to play the beloved character.
“That’s confidential, dear. No, I’m kidding. I don’t know,” said the no star said at the time. “I just know that the fans, the way the fans booked me, baby, online, I have to do a gig every week. So if we add Marvel to it, hey, let’s do it. I’m ready for villain .”
