In case you missed her Saturday Night Live reveal, Keke Palmer is pregnant! And she just shared the truly unexpected story of how she found out: her partner, Darius Jackson, told her.

Keke explained how this went down during her Baby, This Is Keke Palmer podcast, saying, via Entertainment Tonight, “I was like, you know what? I feel like maybe that, maybe that I am [pregnant]. 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. 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 went on to explain, “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.’ 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.”

Keke added that the pregnancy was “definitely planned” and that they’ve already picked a name—although they’re keeping it secret. “We’re not saying the name, but the name for us—it gives American. It gives Black American storyline,” she said. “We want it to just be like—we’re not going for anything too unique. It’s not about to be Stone and Sand. It’s just, like, a nice natural. No aesthetic baby.”
