However, people are pretty certain they know the gender of the 'Bang Bang' hitmaker's baby, after claims that fellow rapper and close friend, Lil Wayne, accidentally revealed the news.

According to a number of reports, the ‘Starships’ rapper is set to be pregnant with a baby girl!

In a recent episode of popular US podcast, No Jumper, socialite Celina Powell spilled the tea, claiming that she overheard Lil Wayne telling somebody she was with that the pregnant star will be having a baby girl.

She said: "Anyway, Nicki Minaj is pregnant with a girl. Daniel [Tekashi 6ix9ine] confirmed it but I actually heard it from Lil Wayne. I was with somebody and Lil Wayne FaceTimed him and they were talking about Nicki's pregnancy.

She added: "I was like 'Oh my god!' and I wanted to record so bad the conversation but I knew I would get kicked out and I didn't wanna f**k up my relationship with that guy."

Fans' suspicions of the star being pregnant were first raised in June when she told them she was having cravings for red meat and jalapenos, and when they asked her on Twitter, she responded:

"No throwing up. But nausea and peeing non stop. Omg what do u think this means guys???? Lmaooooooooooo."

It certainly seems like baby fever this year, with Katy Perry, Gigi Hadid and Sophie Turner all having lockdown pregnancies, and honestly, that's one baby group we'd love to be invited along to.
