Watch: Keke Palmer's Boyfriend Pays Tribute to Her After Pregnancy Reveal

Live from New York, it was Keke Palmer and her baby bump!

On Dec. 3, following months of pregnancy rumors, the Emmy-winning actress confirmed in her monologue during her Saturday Night Live hosting debut that she is expecting her first child. Her boyfriend, Darius Jackson, soon paid tribute to Keke on Instagram, writing that their baby is due in 2023.

Keke is not the first celeb to reveal her pregnancy to the world on SNL. In 2018, Cardi B showcased her baby bump for the first time on the NBC sketch series, confirming she was expecting her first child with Offset. The couple welcomed daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus that year. In 2021, the "WAP" rapper announced her pregnancy with baby No. 2, son Wave Set Cephus, via another baby bump debut on TV, this time onstage at the BET Awards.

And who could forget Beyoncé's two different pregnancy announcements for her and Jay-Z's daughter Blue Ivy and twins Sir and Rumi?

Erin Foster

"It feels like we need something positive right now, so I’d like to offer something," the first-time mom-to-be wrote on Thanksgiving. "I’m pregnant!"

We would have accepted pie, too, but a hearty congratulations to her and husband Simon Tikhman all the same.

Suki Waterhouse

The Daisy Jones and the Six  star went for an on-stage reveal (in this outfit, if not at this moment), confirming weeks of pregnancy speculation Nov. 19 at the Corona Capital Music Festival in Mexico.

"I decided to wear something particularly sparkly because I thought it might distract you from something else that's going on," Waterhouse, who's expecting her first child with Robert Pattinson, told the crowd. "I'm not sure if it's working."

Nicole Phelps

Michael Phelps' wife let it be known that their fourth child was on the way while celebrating their seven years of marriage in photos on Oct. 29. 

Maluma and Susana Gomez

Maluma actually revealed that he was going to be a dad in the music video for "Procura," which he premiered for fans during an Oct. 19 concert in Washington, D.C., showing off the first footage of his pregnant girlfriend.

But there have been many encores, such as this one at the 2023 Latin Grammys on Nov. 16.

Whitney Cummings

"In these pix I am with child," the comedian captioned an Instagram carousel. "And there's a baby in me too. Human pup coming December."

Never forget who the furst-born is.

Kourtney Kardashian

The Poosh founder took the subtle route in letting husband Travis Barker know during a June 16 Blink-182 concert that she'd be rocking maternity wear in the near future.


The "Diamond" singer had an unexpected co-headliner when she performed during the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show on Feb. 12.

Rihanna has since shared that she didn't plan to make the big reveal on just any given Sunday, but it was as good a time as any to show that she and A$AP Rocky had baby No. 2 on the way.

Keke Palmer

On Dec. 3, 2022, following months of pregnancy rumors, the Emmy winner confirmed live on Saturday Night Live, during her monologue, that she is indeed expecting her first child.

Queen Bey unforgettably told a reporter at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards that she had a surprise, and then confirmed it onstage at the end of her "Love on Top" performance by rubbing her belly and telling the audience, "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me." Her and Jay-Z's first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, was born the following January.

Ed Sheeran

Although he never confirmed his wife was pregnant, the singer announced on Instagram back in September 2020 that they did become parents. "I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you," he wrote. "Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter - Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her." 

Ryan Lochte & Kayla Rae Reid

As baby announcements go, Ryan and Kayla's 2016 reveal for baby No. 1 has got to be one of the cutest, and totally appropriate given Lochte's status as one of the most decorated Olympic swimmers of all time.

Camilla Luddington

Just in time for Halloween 2016, the Grey's Anatomy actress took advantage of the seasonal harvest to announce her first child was on the way.

The singer and Jay-Z welcomed twins Rumi and Sir that year.
