'I've had no nausea': Pregnant Keke Palmer says she's 'feeling good' about her baby
HARVEY, ILLINOIS: Keke Palmer is thrilled to become a first-time mom, and the actress-singer can’t stop gushing about it. In her recent appearance on the podcast Las Culturistas, presented by comedian Matt Rogers and Bowen Yang, the ‘Nope’ star shared, "I think that my baby is like a warrior or something like that. Because I've been good, y'all," she says. "I've had no nausea — like I've had moments where I'm like [gagging], where I'll just be sitting there and it'll make me feel that way. But I won't actually throw up, I won't actually run to the bathroom." Palmer explained, "It doesn't last more than like 10 seconds, it's like a wave of something."
The 29-year-old actress who is expecting a baby with boyfriend Darius Jackson told during the show that her ‘baby moves all the time,’ "Right now I'm at like 31 weeks, so the baby is getting bigger. Eventually, I'll get to the point where I probably will see fingers and stuff but I don't know if it's that big yet. I don't know if the power is there yet. But I definitely feel, and you can see movement."
Palmer also talked about how she feels to be a mother for the very first time during Monday’s episode, "I'm so excited to be dancing with my damn baby. I'm ready to be giving all the love." Palmer added, "I think about it every day. What's it gonna be when I first lay eyes on you? What's it gonna be with our first moments together?" She further added, "But also, are you gonna bust my damn vagina apart? That too."
The ‘True Jackson, VP’ alum first announced her pregnancy in public, when she unbuttoned her coat and flaunted her baby bump on Saturday Night Live (SNL) in December, as per People. Palmer said in her opening monologue, "There are some rumors going around, people have been in my comments saying, 'Keke's having a baby, Keke's pregnant,' and I wanna set the record straight — I am!" The artist went on during her hosting debut, "I gotta say, though, it is bad when people on the internet spread rumors about you y'all, but it's even worse when they're correct. I mean, like, I was trying so hard to keep it on the down low, 'cause I got a lot of stuff going on, you know?" she continued. "But honestly this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited. Guys, I'm going to be a mom."
