Keke Palmer is known for being a well-known actress, singer, and TV personality. The actress who won a Primetime Emmy Award is known for her comedic roles, and her fans love her funny antics. Palmer’s first role was in Barbershop 2: Back in Business, which was also her first movie. The actress has also appeared in a number of TV shows, and fans may have seen her on Nickelodeon.
We’ve heard for months that Keke Palmer and her boyfriend Darius Daulton, who is the brother of the star of Insecure, Sarunas Jackson, are going to have a baby.
The True Jackson actress is known for keeping her personal life private, and she plans to keep it that way. However, she recently made headlines when she uploaded a picture that has fans guessing about a big announcement in her life.
Before we jump to any conclusions, we have to bear in mind that Keke has been slammed for an insensitive pregnancy prank earlier this year when she announced that she is pregnant on April 1, the April fools day.
So what’s the truth this time? Let’s look at all the details and less-well-known information to figure out if Keke Palmer is pregnant or not.
Is Keke Palmer Pregnant?
While the rumors of Keke being pregnant have been swirling around for months, there had not been any solid proof to back it up – until couple of days back! Yes, 2 days ago Keke Palmer posted a video of her sitting down, and it was clear from the video that the 29-year-old actress had a big belly.
In recent pictures, we’ve observed that Keke has started covering up her pregnant belly. For instance, take a look at her as she’s attending New York Fashion Week; she’s trying to hide her tummy in all of the pictures:
And we aren’t the only ones who have noticed a little protrusion in the abdominal region. Take a look at what one of her fans posted about her on Twitter:
Keke and Darius have been dating for less than a year. Unlike her other relationships, they made it official on Instagram just a few months after they started dating. They may have met for the first time in May 2021 at Diddy and Issa Rae’s Memorial Day party.
Palmer, who was 28 at the time, told Bustle in March 2022 that this was the happiest she had ever been with someone. “Then why would I go out of my way to hide this person? That’s a lot more work than just living and being in my life.”

Even though Keke Palmer wasn’t pregnant at the time, she recently chose April 1 to play a prank. Palmer’s joke involved herself, as she posted on social media a mirror selfie of herself holding her back and sticking out her stomach. Fans quickly went to the section for comments to congratulate Keke Palmer on being pregnant. Keke Palmer also wrote a caption that said she is now officially a summer mom.
People were surprised, but Palmer soon told them it was a prank. She also said that even though this was a joke, she will be a mom one day, and she and the baby will both be as silly as hell. Palmer had tweeted earlier that she decided to have an abortion because it was not a good time in her life to raise a child. She also said that she was worried about her career responsibilities and afraid that she couldn’t be both a career woman and a mother.

Even though Palmer was trying to be funny, the joke didn’t go over well with fans, and the whole thing was soon criticized.
Many people said it’s not funny at all, and one said, “Jokes about pregnancy are not funny, especially since thousands of women miscarry or can’t make babies.” Keke Palmer’s pregnancy prank comes after celebrities like Justin Bieber and Tori Spelling did similar things and got in trouble for it. Spelling and Dean McDermott have five kids together. In 2021, Spelling shared a photo of her fake baby bump on Instagram, making it look like she was expecting baby number six. Spelling’s fans were not happy with what she wrote.
