Jackson, a fitness instructor, also took to social media to share the news. He posted a photo of him holding the baby, accompanied by a touching message about the joys of fatherhood.
Palmer revealed she was expecting in a high-profile way upon taking the stage in December to deliver her monologue as host of Saturday Night Live. “I’m especially glad to be here because there’s some rumors going around,” Palmer said. “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.” Palmer then pulled open her blazer to reveal a baby bump. “I gotta say, it is bad when people on the internet spread rumors about you, but it’s even worse when they’re correct,” Palmer added with a laugh.
