Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Nope and Lightyear actress Keke Palmer announced she is pregnant with her first child while she was guest hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend.

"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!" Palmer, 29, said smiling and opening her coat to reveal her large, bare baby bump for which the studio audience cheered.

"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 added. "But, honestly, this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited. Guys, I'm going to be a mom.

"Even though some people feel a little weird about me having a baby cause I was a child actor, I just wanna say, 'Look, I'm 29, I'm grown, I have sex, I own a home, I stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6. You know? Things adults do.' I'm kidding. Y'all know I'm the same person I've always been and I'm proud of that!"
