Is Nicki Minaj and her new husband expecting their first child? That’s what fans want to know after she deleted a tweet that caused her Barbz to lose it.
The 36-year-old rapper posted a tweet that appeared to reveal she and hubby Kenneth Petty may be adding to their new family. “Expecting a…” Minaj shared with fans on Wednesday before quickly deleting it. She followed that up with another post, tweeting, “My bad y’all,” but the damage was done.
Fans immediately flooded Twitter with speculation that Minaj was pregnant with several taking to the social media giant with hilarious responses.
“Me: calls off work. My manager: why you calling off, what’s the reason. Me: Bitch Nicki Minaj might be pregnant and I need time to process this!!!” one person wrote. “Log off and go drink your pickle juice, we all know your [sic] pregnant,” added another.
While fans are hoping for a baby Minaj, it appears the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper has cleared up the pregnancy rumor that she stirred. Hours later Minaj hit Twitter again and stated, “expecting an official date/time for #QueenRadio in the morning,” referring to her Apple Radio show. She also told fans to “chiiiiiileeee” when she tweeted, “Y’all, should I do #QueenRadio on… FRIDAY or… ? cuz chiiiiileeeee I needz tuh get into sum thangzzzzzzzz.”
There’s a reason the Barbz are so on board for a mini Nicki. As The Blast reported, the rapper just revealed she got married to her controversial fiancé last week. Taking to Instagram, Minaj showed off several gifts including two coffee mugs with “Mr.” and “Mrs.” written on them, as well as a white baseball cap that red “Bride.” Several of her famous friends took to her comments to send her well wishes. “Congrats queen!” exclaimed Christina Aguilera, while model Winnie Harlow wrote, “So happy for you Mrs.Bride you deserve all the happiness in the world.”
Minaj’s jeweler recently showcased her and Kenneth’s wedding rings. The rapper’s sparkler is giant! Shaped in a rectangle, the oversized rock shined in its box alongside what appeared to be her husband’s wedding band. The band has FIVE rows of diamonds and is almost equally as large as Minja’s ring.
Sending his congratulations their way, the jeweler posted the box he stuck them in revealing an adorable photo of the bride and groom during a private moment at home. “Congrats to the King and Queen, We wish you both lots of love and happiness together. Thank you for trusting us with designing and making these very special pieces for you both. @nickiminaj,” the jeweler wrote.
Minaj has spoken openly about her desire to have a baby and build a family. While sitting down with Complex Magazine in 2014 the “Bang Bang” rapper told them, “I was put here to be a mother.” When asked what her biggest fear was, she replied, “That I’ll become so consumed with work that I’ll forget to live my personal life to the fullest. If I’m done with my fifth album and I don’t have a child by then, no matter how much money I have, I would be disappointed, as a woman, because I feel like I was put here to be a mother.”
She recently shared a video showing Kenneth rubbing her belly. When Minaj asked on camera, “You wish there was something inside of there?” he quickly replied, “There will be.”
While fans are in a hurry for Minaj and Kenneth to have a baby, the now-married couple seems to be focused a little too much on Halloween right now. They spooked quite a few people when they appeared as Harley Quinn and the Joker, but nothing compared to later in the week when Minaj was seen as the Bride of Chucky and Kenneth as the crazy doll himself.
Who knows? Maybe their next costume will get them in the mood to procreate!
