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

She added, "Being around so many others that appreciate and put their all into their craft was especially fulfilling."
"I thank Steven Higgins and Lorne Michaels for sharing their insight with me, I was soaking up every minute. I love being around the goats chile! Forever a student… Who could've told little me that I'd be on stage with @kenanthompson and @iamkelmitchell for a Kenan and Kel/Kelly reunion - I would've passed out," the former child star continued. "These brothers are ICONS. Talent like theirs is hard to come by, there's a reason why we loved that show and it's cause they knew what they were doing. Even as kids! Thank you @nbcsnl and also the WRITERS!"

Love is all we have isn't it, you do nothing in this world alone and trust me, I am not alone! Very grateful… Happy Holidays!" she concluded her post.
