Nicki and Tekashi delivered the color visual for their new record at midnight on Friday (June 12). However, shortly after fans and folks on social media watched the clip, they began to speculate if the Queens, N.Y. native is expecting a child. Is Nicki Minaj pregnant?
There are several scenes in the video in which Nicki bares a flat stomach, but there are others where her full body isn’t shown. This is what led to speculation that she may have had her midsection edited to conceal a potentially growing baby bump.
“@NICKIMINAJ I saw the stomach sis you really tried it with the edit I know you pregnant ,” one Twitter user wrote.
Hours after the “Trollz” video debuted, Nicki uploaded an image to her Instagram page further fueling the pregnancy rumor fire. In the picture, Nicki is wearing colorful pasties on her breasts, as seen in the video, and a silver high-waist bikini bottom, but her stomach can still be seen. Fans think her stomach appears to show she’s pregnant.
While some fans marveled at the upload, others asked if she is a mom-to-be.
“Wait is Nicki pregnant?,” one person said.
This isn’t the first time Nicki’s fans have inquired about whether or not she is pregnant. Last month, during an impromptu Q&A on Twitter, a fan asked Nicki if she has been cooking while quarantined amid the coronavirus pandemic. She replied to the fan by sharing the different food cravings she’s had. Another supporter attempted to put two and two together and asked if the rapper has been experiencing morning sickness, alluding to her possibly being pregnant.
“Lmao,” Nicki tweeted. “No throwing up. But nausea and peeing non stop. Omg what do u think this means guys???? Lmaooooooooooo.”
Nicki hasn’t spoken on the most recent pregnancy rumor yet.
