Pregnant Keke Palmer reveals baby’s sex during Jimmy Fallon interview

Keke Palmer is having a baby boy!

The pregnant actress let the sex of her first child slip during a “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” interview Wednesday.

As the “True Jackson VP” alum shared her upcoming arrival’s possible zodiac signs with the audience, she casually mentioned, “I don’t want to be too blunt for my baby boy.”

The 29-year-old’s fans immediately took to Twitter to celebrate the admission.

“keke just said ‘my baby boy’ on the tonight show OMGGGG congratulations,” one user wrote.

Another added, “Wait. Did Keke Palmer just reveal she’s having a boy on Jimmy Fallon?!”

The former Disney Channel star previously hinted that she and her boyfriend, Darius Jackson, have 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,” Palmer tweeted earlier this month.

She went on to call “baby girls … a blessing,” leading social media users to speculate that she will welcome one of her own.

However, Palmer did not comment on the rumors at the time.

The singer, who confirmed her pregnancy news during a December 2022 “Saturday Night Live” episode, didn’t only clarify her little one’s sex on Wednesday but also hinted at his due date.

Palmer hinted that she will give birth in March, telling Jimmy Fallon her son will either be a Pisces or an Aries.

“I’m not sure exactly,” the “Nope” star explained. “Pisces are known to be very deep, very emotional creatures.

“I don’t want to be too … tell it like it is,” she continued. “I need to wade in the water with a Pisces, just keep it chill.”

The expectant star glowed on the late night talk show, showing her budding belly in a tight pink dress.

While Palmer has recently given glimpses of her pregnancy progress with red carpet appearances and maternity shoot snaps, she keeps her romance with Jackson out of the spotlight.

Palmer has been dating Darius Jackson since 2021.

The duo began dating in 2021, and the “Akeelah and the Bee” star called their private love “sacred” while celebrating Jackson’s birthday on Saturday.

“It almost feels asinine to try to share or give a glimpse into something that only we could understand,” Palmer wrote via Instagram. “I can share most things so easily, but not you.”

The mom-to-be previously told Bustle in March 2022 that “fame is traumatic,” noting that “a lot of attention is not something that everybody can deal with.”

However, Palmer did confess that she was the “happiest” she has “ever felt” while in a relationship with the personal trainer.
