Keke Palmer is switching things up for the next chapter of her life. 

Taking to Instagram earlier this week, Palmer, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Darius Jackson, shared snapshots from their recent babymoon and opened up about her plans for the future. 

“Happy new year. baby moon was in full affect,” Keke captioned the Jan. 3 post. “I’m really proud of myself for resting this trip. i am antsy by nature. i learned to at least schedule things leisurely so i have something to complete that’s on brand with the theme of the season. which is, rest.”

The Nope actress went on to explain the reasoning behind this new season, stating that she’s “spent many seasons sacrificing,” something she learned from both parents but especially her father. 

“I want to be just like him. his life is full and he has given so much,” Keke wrote. “I don’t think giving or sacrificing are bad things, it’s who i am and that will never change. but every season we are meant to embrace something new.” 

Palmer said this means she’ll to be taking things slower and all she’ll have to do is “enjoy…be grateful and reap the benefits of those that came before me, all the sacrifices, all the prayers and all the power to be intentional and at EASE.” 

She ended the lengthy caption with an update on her pregnancy, writing “this baby moving thing is weirdddddd.”

Palmer, 29, confirmed she was expecting while hosting Saturday Night Live in early December. “There’s 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!” she said then, opening her jacket to reveal a baby bump.

Keke has been in a relationship with Jackson since 2021.
