Is Nicki Minaj Pregnant? The Cryptic Instagram Video That Sparked Pregnancy Rumors To Resurface

Is Nicki Minaj pregnant? Nicki Minaj has been dogged by pregnancy rumors for quite some time. When she and Nas were dating, the internet was positively sure she was with child.  

Back then, the "Anaconda" rapper was planning to tell the world the news about her and her future baby daddy. “[Nicki] found out she was pregnant during Thanksgiving and supposedly she supposed to announce her bundle of joy around the Grammys,” an insider revealed.

Nicki Minaj and Nas were friends for quite some time and fueled romance rumors in early 2018 when they were spending a lot of time together. She posted a photo of the rapper on Instagram back in November 2017 with just a smiley face as a caption.

Now, that relationship is over and Minaj is married to Kenneth Petty. Her mom, Carol Maraj, has been getting in on the pregnancy rumors by telling anyone who will listen how ready she is to be a grandmother.

Minaj has repeatedly shut down pregnancy speculation in the past, but the insider who broke the 2018 news was certain that Minaj was truly expecting her first child this time. “She’s also been very MIA on the social media…pregnancy I’m guessing,” the source said.

Minaj did tweet, however, that her fans weren’t getting both a new album and a baby from her. So ... is Nicki Minaj pregnant?

Well, fast forward to November 2019 and here we were again, dealing with rumors that the rapper was pregnant. Only, this time, she was a married woman.

Minaj and Petty tied the knot on October 12, 2019. And this time, it was Minaj who fueled the flames of the rumor with a since-deleted Twitter post. She tweeted, "expecting a" and left it posted just briefly before deleting it.

That was more than enough time for her fans to go wild with speculation. Minaj followed that up with a tweet that said, "my bad y'all." Fans continued to guess that she was about to announce that she was pregnant.

Minaj further clarified by tweeting, "expecting an official date/time for #QueenRadio in the morning." She then went on to talk about how the deleted tweet was only up for 14 seconds. She wrote, "Blogs rlly reposting a typo that was up for 14 seconds chile. go to bed," addressing the speculation. "Even if it's day time in your timezone. All of y'all just go to bed."

In September 2019, Minaj tweeted that she planned to retire from music to start a family. So, could you really blame fans for thinking she was pregnant?

Fast forward even further to the present and the Nicki Minaj pregnancy rumors continue to persist.

And once again, Minaj is the one sparking them. In a recently posted Instagram video, the rapper's husband is seen rubbing her stomach and saying, "On our way to Trinidad with your dad."

Of course, Minaj's fans went crazy, asking her questions and congratulating her. When one fan came right out and asked if she really was pregnant, the rapper remained coy about it, saying, "Why I feel like I'm about to get a beating? Y'all swear y'all my mother chile [frown]. I'm pregnant with so many ideas for this album. It'll be my best."

When another was curious why Petty was rubbing her stomach, she replied, "Babe u gotta ask him. He rubs my feet & my stomach. Ima tell him stop rubbing my stomach tho. Cuz chile..." Fans remained confused about what exactly the point of the video was. Minaj revealed, "That I'm in Trinidad & I'm excited to be back [tired face]." 

Whether the rumor is actually true or not, one thing's for sure: Minaj sure likes to keep fans on their toes about it!
