Back in May, fans were convinced that the rapper was pregnant after she took part in a Twitter Q&A. Minaj told fans that she was craving red meat and salads with "extra jalapeños," she said according to Entertainment Tonight.
One fan asked if she had morning sickness. "Lmao," Minaj responded. "No throwing up. But nausea and peeing nonstop. Omg what do u think this means guys???? Lmaooooooooooo."
Another fan asked if she could post a baby bump photo. Minaj seemingly confirmed the news. "Yeah, in a couple months. The world ain’t ready yet," she wrote.
This will be Minaj and husband Kenneth Petty's first child together. The couple tied the knot this past October.
