Is Nicki Minaj trying to tell us something?
The Young Money rapper took to Twitter on Monday night (July 10) with a message featuring a single emoji: a baby.
Fans definitely took the ball and ran with it in the replies, with most assuming that the cryptic tweet was a pregnancy announcement. Minaj fed into the fan furor by liking a handful of tweets about the possibility of her being pregnant, including one that just asked “BABY ON THE WAY ?????” and another that read “We said ‘DROP THE ALBUM’ not drop a baby…….”
This would be the first baby for Nicki if she is, indeed, adding a new member to the Young Money family. Minaj was last romantically linked to fellow rapper Nas, even confirming to Ellen DeGeneres back in May that the pair had a few “sleepovers.” The latest headlines about the rumored relationship, however, seemed to be pointing to a cooling off.
Billboard hadn’t heard back from a rep for Nicki for clarification on the tweet by press time.
While some are convinced the 34-year-old is expecting her first child, others think it could be in relation to her new album.
However, Nicki did little to settle the rumours by ‘liking’ a myriad of different tweets from her fans, who call themselves The Kingdom.
One tweet she liked read: “Are you pregnant? Do not play with me.”
Nicki also liked a number of tweets saying she was “giving birth” to her upcoming album NM4.
One fan shared a crying GIF and wrote: “Nicki talking to the kingdom after we had a breakdown cause a baby gone come before the album”.
