Loni Love Claims She Has Worked Hard to Conceal Keke Palmer’s Pregnancy (Exclusive)
Loni Love knows how to keep a secret, even when it’s extremely difficult.
The comic walked the red carpet at the 45th Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday in Washington, D.C., and she discussed Keke Palmer’s huge baby bump reveal during her Saturday Night Live monologue with ET’s Deidre Behar.
“We were DMing each other because I was trying to keep it a secret,” Love explained, hinting that staying silent with such happy news wasn’t easy. “I was like, ‘OK, Auntie Loni, be quiet!'”
“But I really loved how she did it, and we’re so pleased for her, and she’s happy and well, and that’s all that matters,” Love continued. “Keke, congratulations!”
“Yes, I am!” Love responded when asked if she’d be willing to assist with babysitting in the future.
Palmer made her Saturday Night Live debut on the Studio 8H stage by announcing her pregnancy and showcasing her gorgeous baby bump.
She came to the stage for her monologue wearing a tight-fitting blazer that appeared to conceal her baby belly – but she utilized the opportunity to share her wonderful baby news.

“But I’m extra delighted to be here because there have been some rumors floating around. People have been saying in my comments, ‘Keke’s having a baby, Keke’s pregnant,’ and I want to set the record straight: I am, in fact, pregnant “She said this while throwing open her jacket and showing her baby bump.
Following her stint as host, Palmer turned to Instagram to express her gratitude to the show’s cast and crew, as well as her family and boyfriend, Darius Jackson.

Thank you, @noraradd, for always being my spiritual sister! You get it, my tiny Pisces moon.
Thank you to my team for constantly aiming for and pushing mountains to broaden the scope of my gift, and thank you to my other half @dvulton for providing me with the things that only genuine unity can provide.
Isn’t love all we have? You don’t do anything in this world alone and believe me, I’m not alone! Thank you… Merry Christmas!”
