Could Nicki Minaj Really Be Pregnant? She May Have Just Confirmed It

Ya’ll, while the world has been adjusting to social distancing and being in quarantine, it also seems to be a time for babies! From a Harry Potter star welcoming a baby (Rupert Grint) to the news that one of the most beautiful couples of the 21st century (Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik) are soon to be parents, the list of 2020 celeb babies just keeps growing. And it seems like we could be adding superstar Nicki Minaj to that list!


The multi-award-winning rapper hosted a Q&A session on Twitter last week that has fueled the idea that she may be expecting a child.



It started with a fan asking if six-time American Music Awards winner Nicki Minaj had been doing any cooking while in quarantine. Minaj rattled off a list of foods but eagle-eyed fans found the fact that she has “been rlly having red meat cravings then salad cravings” especially interesting.



Another fan went on to ask if Minaj was “also throwing up in morning and having to go to the bathroom a lot,”, which happen to be common signs of pregnancy. The “Superbass” hitmaker raised more eyebrows and snatched a few wigs with her response:

“Lmao. No throwing up. But nausea and peeing non stop. Omg what do u think this means guys???? Lmaooooooooooo.”



And when fans asked for a picture of her baby bump, she coyly replied that “The world ain’t ready yet,”.



Since way back in 2019, Minaj has been fueling pregnancy speculations. From telling fants that she had already picked out baby names, to her verse on Chance the Rapper’s song, “Zanies and Fools” :

He the Clyde to my Bonnie, ’bout to walk down the aisle and be a mommy,” 

Minaj has had fans wondering if she is expecting for almost a year now. Some might say she’s just playing around with the frenzy surrounding any form of pregnancy speculation and thus, is having a laugh. On Queen Radio in February this year, she announced that she was expecting and then laughed it off as a big joke. Not only that, after posting up a video on her Instagram of hubby – Kenneth Petty – rubbing her belly, fans went wild.


In the video, Minaj and Petty were seen on a plane, making their way to Trinidad. The camera focuses on her still-flat belly while Petty rubs it and says,

We’re in Trinidad with your dad.”

The couple got together in 2018 and got married a year later in October 2019. Minaj has been vocal about actually starting a family and wanting kids, going so far as to say she was stepping away from music to focus on herself. Fingers crossed that her recent tweets are real and that she’s going to fulfil her wish of being a mum!
