“I’m feeling good. I always told myself definitely by 28 I would love to be pregnant, or at least focusing on something like this. I was like, open to it like,” Keke shared on her podcast, where she was joined by Darius.

“Good partner, feeling really good. And so, I was like, you know what? I feel like maybe that, maybe that I am,” Keke continued. “So, I took the test, and it came back negative. I didn’t have the lines on there, so I just threw it in the trash. I just threw it in the trash.”

Turns out, Keke didn’t wait long enough for the results to develop, and the pregnancy test ended up coming out positive!

“And so I go out with Nora and we’re at like, this semi-casual business dinner, but we’re having some little sake and enjoying ourselves, and all of a sudden, I get a text from Darius, and he says, ‘When did you take this?’ And it’s a picture of the pregnancy test and it’s positive,” Keke recalled.

“I didn’t wait long enough! And I’m like, ‘I took that earlier today, like literally just some hours before I left out.’ And he said, ‘Well, you better get to be drinking water in your sight. Cause I’m buying 10 of these things right now. You take them all when you get home,’” Keke explained. “Soon as I come home, I, and I’m also not kidding, as soon as I come home, me and him, I do 10 of ‘em back-to-back, back-to-back, to back, to back-to-back. All positive.”

While many fans were surprised to learn that she was having a baby, Keke said that her pregnancy was very much planned.

“My baby was definitely planned,” Keke said. “It wasn’t like we sat on the chalkboard and wrote some stuff out, but…we were definitely like, moving in the vibe of definitely no surprise.”

Keke later said that she and Darius have a name picked out for their baby boy, but they aren’t sharing it just yet.

“We’re not saying the name, but the name for us — it gives American. It gives Black American storyline. We want it to just be like — we’re not going for anything too unique. It’s not about to be Stone and Sand,” Keke shared. “It’s just like a nice natural. No aesthetic baby.”
