Nicki Minaj fans are convinced the rapper is expecting her first child after she shared a revealing new photo of herself online.
The Starships hitmaker wed beau Kenneth Petty last year, and has since been the subject of pregnancy rumours, with her loyal followers hoping for a new arrival.
The latest incident of speculation occurred after the star was pictured wearing nothing but nipple pasties and high waisted underwear as she promoted her latest single Trollz, with rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.
Giving a sultry pose to camera, Nicki is seen wearing rainbow hair extensions down to her hips and, after posting the photo on Instagram, fans immediately began to question if her outrageous outfit was used as a distracting technique to hide a blossoming bump.
One fan said: "Nicki Minaj so pregnant. I know an over edited pregnant picture when i see one. The shape of that stomach and they edited out the dark line in the middle of her stomach and covered her breast because the nipples get dark when you’re pregnant. Congrats though sis."
Another added: "I'm over here waiting for @NICKIMINAJ to say she's pregnant announcement."
Fans have speculating the rapper could be set to become a mum, as she appeared to keep her stomach covered in many of the scenes of her latest music video.
Last month, fans asked Nicki outright if she was expecting a child, to which she quipped back: "The world ain't ready yet."

Singer Christina Milian is "definitely considering" expanding her family, just four months after giving birth to her second child.
The Dip It Low hitmaker welcomed son Isaiah with her boyfriend, fellow singer Matt Pokora, in January, becoming a family-of-four with Milian's 10-year-old daughter Violet, from her marriage to ex-husband The-Dream.
Fatherhood has made Pokora broody for more kids, and he's keen to impregnate Milian sooner rather than later.
"This is his first child and he's just in love. He's ready to make more," the beauty tells Us Weekly. "I'm like, 'Hold on, my body's not ready!' I just want to enjoy this moment!"
However, Milian, 38, confesses the idea has quickly grown on her: "I'm like, 'Well, maybe, do we hurry up and keep going so that we can knock it out (complete their family)?'"
And the new mum admits it's "not out of the picture" for the couple to try to conceive again during the coronavirus pandemic, sharing, "We're definitely considering making some more (babies)!"
For now, Milian is enjoying experiencing parenthood anew with Pokora, who she has been dating since 2017, and watching him bond with their son has made the singer fall in love with him so much more.
"I think we've grown stronger, we've become closer," she says. "I mean, we already were super close. We're already best friends, but I mean to have this together and to look at each other and just know what we've done together, it's just grown into that kind of real unconditional love. I see that he loves being in his role as a father."
Meanwhile, Milian has plenty to keep herself busy as she is currently promoting her latest venture - her own baby gear line for the Your Babiie brand.
Called AM:PM, the collection features products the star wanted to purchase for her son as she began preparing for his arrival.
"Everything that I saw was pretty basic, so I just wanted to find something that had more personality, something that stood out," she explains.
The name is a nod to her 2001 debut single AM to PM, and Milian notes it's a fitting title for life as a mother-of-two.
"It's crazy how things come around a whole 20 years later. It's definitely a great homage, but really it has to do with... you know, parenting is a 24/7 job," she shares. "There's no time that you're off the second that you have a kid and that goes into adulthood and I'm definitely realising that."
Ice-T has praised long-running show Law & Order for always trying to be "fair" in its depiction of African-Americans.
In a promotional interview ahead of the release of his new movie Equal Standard, he shared his thoughts about why the Dick Wolf show was so successful, with him suggesting to editors at New York Post's Page Six it's because "it's tried to be as fair as it can possibly be."
"You have got the black gang bangers, but you have also got the black judge, you've got the black attorney," said the hip-hop star, who has starred as Detective Odafin Tutuola on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for 20 seasons.
But he also acknowledged the police officers on the show, which stars Mariska Hargitay, have been somewhat "romanticised".
"I am wearing Gucci. Mariska is wearing designer clothes," he continued. "Cops can't afford to do that, so in a way we romanticise that job when it's not that romantic."
Ice-T stars alongside Naughty by Nature rapper Treach in new film Equal Standard, which focuses on racism in the police force and the often tense relationship between African-American men and law enforcement.
