With one single comment, the 32-year-old rapper has sparked massive speculation that she and boyfriend Meek Mill, one of the opening acts on her Pinkprint tour, are expecting their first child together.
“Make some noise for my baby father!” she told the crowd onstage at her concert at the First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania on Saturday, spurring Mill, 28, to smile and raise his hands as the audience cheered.
Naturally, fans on Twitter freaked out. The couple, which began dating earlier this year, has not commented about the speculation. And Minaj may have been kidding—that night, she retweeted a fan’s video of the moment with some laughing face emojis.
She reacted the same way when a fan congratulated her on the “baby news.”
Minaj also posted on her Instagram page a photo of herself with several fans, saying, “My beautiful babies. #Pittsburgh #ThePinkprintTOUR.”
Last month, in an interview for Sirius XM satellite radio’s Shade 45 channel, Meek Mill was asked about pregnancy rumors regarding Minaj.
“Nicki ain’t pregnant,” he said. “But yeah, I wish.”
Minaj later tweeted, “No matter wut he, or anyone else says, Onika Tanya Maraj won’t b pushing anyone1 out her vajayjay, until she’s married. Now check that.”
“I definitely will be married before I have my baby,” the rapper had told Complex magazine last fall.
The concert took place following recent breakup rumors. Minaj has posted several PDA-filled pics to squash the speculation.
The two had also sparked engagement rumors in April when Minaj posted a photo of a diamond ring. Mill debunked the reports a month later.
