Video: Nicki Minaj Responds To Pregnancy Rumors

Online, Nicki Minaj is rumored to be expecting her second child. In an Instagram Live, the rapper reacts to the gossip with some surprise.


This time the pregnancy gossip is about Nicki Minaj. The rumor has taken on a life of its own after a video went viral on TikTok. In the clip, Nicki is dancing on stage. “Nicki is definitely pregnant,” the creator writes with the video. Reactions under the video are mixed: some fans are also convinced of the pregnancy, but a large group finds the video disrespectful. “Even if she were pregnant, it’s not our job to announce it,” says one fan.

In an Instagram Live, the rapper responded to the alleged pregnancy. “Am I pregnant?”, she asked startled as she rolled her eyes. “I actually wanted to tweet: I’m not fat, I’m pregnant,” Nicki says, laughing. She quickly adds, “Did I say it wrong? Sorry, I think I said it wrong. I meant I’m not pregnant, I’m fat. Thanks for the congratulations guys anyway.”


Nicki gave birth to her first child in September 2020. She consciously chooses to keep her son out of the spotlight. Very occasionally she shares something about him on Instagram, like this adorable video.


Speculating about a pregnancy is anything but neat, yet it happens regularly. Recently, several tabloid media outlets wrote that Hailey Bieber might be pregnant because of a loose outfit she wore on red carpet during the Grammys. To that gossip, the model responded briefly but firmly, “I’m not pregnant, leave me alone.”
