Nicki Minaj has sparked pregnancy rumours after revealing shes had baby names on her mind.
The rapper has been enjoying a new romance with Kenneth Petty after revealing her new boyfriend to the world at the end of 2018.
And now, after ringing in the New Year, the Starships singer has set tongues wagging with baby rumours.
After a fan tweeted to declare that they had a couple suggestions for baby names, just putting that out there, she replied with: We already chose them babe. Lol but thx.
Now, of course, Nicki and Kenneth could just be forward thinkers or Barbie is trying to drop a hint, but social media is legit convinced a baby is on the way.
One user on Twitter declared that theyve always had an inkling, as they posted: I knew that pickle juice was a sign.
Another just wanted the full details: How far are u gon sis?

The speculation comes as the Pills N Potions artist marked her love for her beau in the sand, after he permanently inked her name on his neck.
Seems like a fair exchange, no?
The couple only went Instagram official earlier in December but have been inseparable ever since, gushing about one another online and even reportedly talking marriage and babies.
And now to take things one step further, Nicki, real name Onika Maraj, took to Instagram sharing pictures of her and Kenneths names inside hearts on the beach, stating Onika hearts Zoo.
She captioned the picture: Ken-N-Barbie
We just hope they werent there when the tide most likely washed away their symbol of love. That would have been awkward to watch.
At least Kens tat would be more permanent than this beach-loving.
A few weeks ago, the Pink Friday rapper revealed her new man went a step further by having her birth name, tattooed in large pink and black script across the inside of his neck.
While the romance is fairly new, the pair have reportedly hardly spent a minute apart, with the 40-year-old joining Nicki for her 36th birthday celebrations in Turks and Caicos and New York.
However, the Anaconda hitmaker has been forced to defend her new relationship after it emerged Kenneth has attempted rape and manslaughter convictions.
Nickis boyfriend is reportedly a level two registered sex offender, which means he is a moderate risk of repeat offence. He was placed on the register after a 1995 conviction for attempted rape in the first degree over an incident that occurred with a 16-year-old girl and served between 18 to 54 months in prison.
In 2006, Kenneth also pleaded guilty to first degree manslaughter over the shooting death of a man named Lamont Robinson four years earlier. He was released in May 2013 and was under supervision until May this year.
However, Nicki, who knew Kenneth growing up in Queens, has stuck by her man and defended their relationship against critics.
In the comments section of a selection of racy pictures of the pair, she fired back: Yall cant run my life. Yall cant even run yall own life.
Giving more details on the conviction, Nicki added: He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship. But go awf, internet.
Metro.co.uk have contacted reps of Nickis for a comment.
