Keke Palmer is a radiant expectant mother!
The Nope star held a themed baby shower yesterday that was supported by Coterie to welcome her new child. The singer shared Instagram Story updates from the party, which had the “Once Upon A Baby” fairytale theme, in addition to posting a series of prenatal photos that were shot on the big night.
The Hustlers actress appears in the photographs posing in front of floor-to-ceiling drapes while sporting a champagne-colored, ribbed tank dress by Stella McCartney and slouchy tan suede boots. She wore her hair up in a chic bun and accentuated the look with a variety of gold jewelry, such as geometric earrings, delicate necklaces, and cuff bracelets.
She included the following quote as the post’s caption: “Long ago, in a not-so-distant region… The King and Queen gathered for a game. As many sunsets as possible passed, the play moved on to love. Currently, there is a prince who will soon appear!”
Additionally, the multi-hyphenate posed for two adorable pictures with her partner Darius Jackson, who matched her outfit with a brown coat, monogrammed pants, a tan scarf, and a beanie.
Palmer revealed her baby bulge when hosting Saturday Night Live in December, confirming her pregnancy. The multi-hyphenate casually revealed the gender and zodiac sign of her unborn child earlier this week while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Palmer stated the following in reference to astrological signs: “My unborn child will either be an Aries or a Pisces. Pisces are known to be very emotional and introspective people. I simply want to make sure I’m not being too direct around my son.”
Attending the NYFCC
On January 4, Keke Palmer walked the red carpet for the first time after sharing her pregnancy news with boyfriend Darius Jackson at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards (NYFCC). In December, the performer made the pregnancy known during her opening monologue on “Saturday Night Live.”
People have been claiming in my comments that “Keke’s having a kid, Keke’s pregnant,” therefore I want to clear the air and clarify that I am! Palmer announced on stage while revealing a growing baby bump by flinging open her camel-colored Max Mara coat.
Palmer entered the red carpet this week with a similar sense of theatricality and celebration, donning a sparkling, floor-length Michael Kors gown with sequins and finished with spaghetti straps and a plunging neckline. Palmer’s belly, which was firmly cradled by her arms, was certainly the night’s accessory despite the stunning outfit. The 29-year-old additionally won the Best Supporting Actress prize that evening for her function in Jordan Peele’s horror movie “Nope” from 2022.
Palmer spent a large portion of the movie’s press tour wearing bright jewel tones (possibly a nod to her character, Emerald), such as the green lace Valentino ensemble she wore to the London premiere, or sparkling ensembles to wink at the intergalactic plotline of the film, like an embellished David Koma dress she wore in Berlin. Palmer’s pregnancy did not stop her from dressing with care, and the shiny Michael Kors outfit served as sort of a sartorial crescendo.
Palmer’s NYFCC style suggests we might see more risky maternity wear in 2023.
2022 was a year of bold maternity fashion. Pregnant shapes are firmly in the spotlight right now, from Rihanna’s second-skin lace bodysuit worn on the May cover of Vogue while she was in her second trimester to Adriana Lima’s bump-bearing cut-out dress worn to the Cannes Film Festival.
