Minaj has not yet addressed the speculation, so until then, let’s talk about why fans believe she’s expecting with her boyfriend, Kenneth Petty.

Nicki Minaj’s tweet about ‘The Tonight Show’ has raised concerns

This drama boils down to a segment of The Tonight Show that aired on June 27, in which Minaj and Fallon head to Red Lobster. During the visit, the two of them chowed down on cheddar bay biscuits and the alcohol-infused Lobsterita — or at least what appeared to be a Lobsterita.

In a tweet posted that evening, Minaj wrote, “For the record; that was iced tea in that lobsterita glass. No alcohol was consumed in the making of our dinner date.”

Fans quickly guessed that was because Minaj is carrying. 

Nicki Minaj wants children

The “Super Bass” rapper has repeatedly opened up about her desire to have a family. Most recently, she told Wonderland in late 2018 that she’s looking forward to marriage and having children. 

“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.”

A source also told Us Weekly in December 2018, “Nicki has always wanted to become a mother, and that’s something she and Kenny have discussed.”

She obviously meant those comments because in January 2019 Minaj revealed that she and her boyfriend had been picking out names for their future children. 

Nicki Minaj just celebrated a major milestone

Minaj is reportedly about to get married, which means she’s that much closer to having kids.

In a June 21 episode of her show Queen Radio on Apple Beats 1, the “Hard White” rapper revealed that she and Petty recently obtained a marriage license. She told listeners that while they haven’t been together long, she doesn’t want to miss out on what she’s found.

“I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness,” she said. “It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”

How long have Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty been together?

Minaj and Petty have been dating since at least December 2018. While their romance seems more recent, they’ve actually known each other since they were teenagers. A source told Us Weekly that the rapper reconnected with the 40-year-old around Thanksgiving 2018.

“Nicki and Kenneth dated when she was a teenager before she was famous,” a source told Us Weekly. “They linked up when she handed out turkeys for Thanksgiving [2018] in her hometown.”

Minaj has described her beau as one of her “first loves.”

Congratulations are in order if they are expecting a child. They seem really in love and happy together, so cheers to that.
