Is Nicki Minaj about to be a mom?
The “Yikes” rapper has fans once again speculating that she’s pregnant after a mysterious post on social media. On Sunday, Minaj shared an Instagram Story with just the red heart and prayer hand emojis. While she didn’t explain their significance, she also posted a photo with her husband Kenneth Petty from a night of celebration. She captioned it with the same emojis, appearing to fuel the pregnancy rumors.
“When u let ya man drunk friend take y’all pics ♀️ I got 2 days of pics that all look like this,” she said. “But there’s a lot to celebrate. ♥️ #Yikes deleting this soon lol.”
When a fan asked what she was celebrating, Minaj responded “Life” with the prayer hand, balloon, and heart face emojis.
Minaj, who married Petty in October, has been open about wanting to start a family. “I’m not saying I’m pregnant. That’s the end goal,” she said during an episode of Queen Radio last year. “I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”
The couple is also planning a wedding ceremony for later this year. Minaj said she hasn’t made any arrangements yet, but she wants Keke Wyatt to perform.
While it’s unclear if she is actually pregnant, that hasn’t stopped fans from celebrating and suggesting baby names including Fendianna.
