She’s expecting her first child with boyfriend, Darius Jackson.

On December 3, she hosted Saturday Night Live and surprised everyone by announcing her pregnancy during a monologue.

“There's some rumors going around. People have been in my comments saying Keke's having a baby. Keke's pregnant. And I want to set the record straight. I am!"

Naturally a person who’s constantly on the go, Palmer admits that expecting a child has made her make some lifestyle changes.

“I’m a naturally fast-paced person,” she said. “For me, life is going at least 90 miles per hour, that’s me cruising. So yeah, I think in general, whether it’s the holidays or this transition I’m having in my life, slowing down is definitely not something that comes naturally to me.”

Recently, Palmer posted a photo dump/videos from her most recent vacation, where she was proud to take rest when needed.

“This season I am going to learn how to take it easy. How to go slow (or slower than I have which is speedy for average).
