Trinidadian-born American rapper, Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj managed to send the internet into a frenzy with just one character.
Today, the No Frauds rapper took to her Twitter to post a baby emoji,1 which folks often use to announce pregnancy. And already, her fans are already wondering if she is pregnant for rapper Nas.
Minaj, 34, didn’t elaborate further, but her followers jumped on the vague tweet immediately.
“BABY ON THE WAY ?????” one fan responded.
She did, however, like several of the tweets asking if she’s pregnant, but didn’t respond to anyone.

If this is just a joke, it wouldn’t be the first time.
In February, Minaj posed with a fake baby bump on Instagram before laughing off the speculation.
Last year, Meek Mill posted a photo of a woman who looked like Minaj sporting a baby bump and tagged both of them in the image with the caption “Haters will say it’s photoshopped.”

But there are those who strongly believe she is hinting her fourth album, and not a baby. See some of the tweets:
