Is Nicki Minaj pregnant?
With one comment, the 32-year-old rapper has sparked massive speculation that she and her rapper boyfriend Meek Mill, one of the opening acts on her Pinkprint tour, are expecting their first child together.
"Make some noise for my baby father!" she told the crowd onstage at her concert at the First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, spurring Mill, 28, to smile and raise his hands as the audience cheered.
Naturally, fans on Twitter freaked out. The couple, which began dating earlier this year, has not commented about the speculation. And Minaj may have been kidding--that night, she retweeted a fan's video of the moment with some laughing face emojis.
She posted on her Instagram page a photo of herself with fans, saying, "My beautiful babies. #Pittsburgh #ThePinkprintTOUR."
Last month, in an interview for Sirius XM satellite radio's Shade 45 channel, Meek Mill was asked about pregnancy rumors regarding Minaj.
"Nicki ain't pregnant," he said. "But yeah, I wish."
Minaj later tweeted that she wouldn't have a child until she was married, "No matter wut he, or anyone else says," echoing comments she made to Complex magazine last fall.
The concert took place following recent breakup rumors. Minaj has posted several public display of affection-filled pics to squash the speculation.
The two had also sparked engagement rumors in April when Minaj posted a photo of a diamond ring. Mill debunked the reports a month later.
