The rumors are true - female rapper Nicki Minaj is pregnant with her first child. The father is Nicki's baby is longtime boyfriend and now fiancé Kenneth Petty.

Her friend and fellow podcaster Joe Budden inadvertently confirmed the rumors yesterday, while arguing with Nicki live on her Queen Radio podcast.

During the argument - Joe blurted out that Nicki was "pregnant." After Joe made the comment - Nicki paused for a second (as if surprised that he spilled her tea) then went back to arguing with him. But the female superstar did not deny Joe's claims, even though she had the opportunity to do so. 

Joe can be heard saying to Nicki as the two argued, "This is why I like talking to people when they're not pregnant." He made the comment to show how frustrated he was - arguing with the top selling female rapper of all time.

Hear it yourself, it is at 2:15 of the below video. You have to listen carefully, because Nicki is talking over Joe:

Nicki and her boyfriend Kenneth have already announced that they are planning to get married "any day now." The couple already has their marriage license - and need only a ceremony to make their union official.

The “Barbie Dreams” rapper, 36, explained that she and Petty “filed for the marriage license and we still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again.”

“From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days,” Minaj shared.

With so much on her plate, Minaj said that she and Petty will celebrate their union with a small, intimate ceremony and will plan a big wedding as her schedule becomes less busy.

“I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later,” Minaj said.

“I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married.”
