Fans have been speculating for months whether or not Minaj has been pregnant when she tweeted about her food cravings after being asked what she's cooking during quarantine and alluded to symptoms of morning sickness.

"Absolutely. Steak. Shrimp. Plus my famous cheeseburgers. So good. Been rlly having red meat cravings then salad cravings with extra jalapeños. Ordered Chkn nachos that didn’t come w/jalapeños. Who does that? Wow."

"Lmao. No throwing up. But nausea and peeing non stop. Omg what do u think this means guys???? Lmaooooooooooo"

In 2018, Minaj told Wonderland how much she wanted to have kids. "I’ve got to get married first then I’ll have a child. I might be closer than people think actually,” she said. "I love children. I’m not going to put that off for much longer."

Minaj is married to Kenneth Petty, and recently described their marriage as "refreshing and calming." They tied the knot last October.

Congrats to the couple!
