Is she or isn’t she? That is the question that fans have for one of hip-hop’s rap queens, Nicki Minaj. Fans are going crazy trying to figure out if the New York native is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kenny Petty. The 36-year-old seemed to confirm pregnancy rumors following a comment she made on Twitter after her segment on Thursday night’s episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
During the pre-taped skit, Minaj visits a Red Lobster restaurant with Fallon and can be seen drinking from a lobsterita cocktail glass.
“For the record; that was iced tea in that lobsterita glass. No alcohol was consumed in the making of our dinner date,” she tweeted on Thursday, June 27.
Twitter followers then began to swarm Nicki’s mentions, wondering if she was hinting that she is expecting.
“So are we all invited to the baby shower orrrrrrr what”.

“Even if you are “pregnant” so what we will be happy for you & the only ones that ain’t happy for you… well they’re just HATERSSS! & you still will be fine af.’”
“Oohh so you dropping hint hints .”
As can be seen, fans are waiting for “Barbiana” to confirm if the pregnancy rumors are true. However, rumors of the rap star being pregnant didn’t begin with her tweet, but in February when Nicki joked that she and Petty were expecting a baby during an episode of “Queen Radio.”
“I’m pregnant,” she said before releasing a loud laugh. “They really gon’ believe me — My manager’s face! He was about to die!”
While fans continue to wonder if Minaj is in baby mode, the rap star is definitely in new music mode. She recently dropped her music video for her single “Megatron,” which features Petty.
