#BoyMom loading! Keke Palmer and her boyfriend Darius Jackson are gearing up to welcome a baby boy in just a few months! More inside…
Keke Palmer just announced she’s about to become a #boymom!
During a late-night interview with Jimmy Fallon, the pregnant NOPE star appeared to reveal that she and boyfriend Darius Jackson are expecting a son together. It appeared to be a slip-up since she hadn’t mentioned the baby’s sex and casually said, “my baby boy.”
“My baby is either going to be a Pisces or an 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.”
The “True Jackson VP” hilariously explained that she can sometimes be very “tell it like it is” after slyly revealing her baby’s sex. With a Pieces coming up, the 29-year-old says she needs to “wade in the water” to “keep it chill.”

Watch her full interview below:
Earlier this month, the 29-year-old mom-to-be hinted she and Darius had a daughter on the way:
It kills me when guys are disappointed that they are having a girl, like they aren’t the reason for that genetic outcome lmao.
Also, baby girls are a blessing

“It kills me when guys are disappointed that they are having a girl, like they aren’t the reason for that genetic outcome lmao,” she tweeted.
The HUSTLERS star’s announcement comes nearly two months after she revealed her pregnancy while hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the first time.
”There’s some rumors going around, people in my comments saying, ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I want to set the record straight—I am!” she said during her opening monologue on December 3rd before unbuttoning her coat to reveal her bump.
Over the weekend…
The Brotherly Love actress and her boo, Darius, enjoyed a date night on the sidelines of the Eagles vs. Giants playoff game last week to celebrate his birthday. Needless to say, the birthday boy was ecstatic that the Eagles were victorious.
On his birthday…
Keke posted a rare video of her beau where she wished him the “happiest” of birthdays.
“I can easily write long emotional posts for all my girls birthdays, but it’s so cringy writing a birthday post for you because the love is so sacred,” Keke captioned her post. “It almost feels asinine to try to share or give a glimpse into something that only we could understand. I can share most things so easily, but not you.”
Congrats to the couple!
