AceShowbiz - Is Nicki Minaj having a bun in the oven? Fans have been speculating so after the female emcee looked noticeably fuller when she attended the 2019 Billboard Women in Music dinner gala on Thursday night, December 12 to accept her Game Changer Award.
For her appearance at the annual event, which took place at Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, Nicki stunned in a plunging black dress that allowed her to show plenty amount of her ample cleavage. The "Bang Bang" rapper complimented the gown by opting for a high ponytail hairstyle, in addition to sporting bold eye makeup and nude lipstick.
Seeing how much weight she gained ever since her last appearance, fans couldn't help but wonder if she is pregnant with her first child. "Nicki looking extra thick from everywhere sis if you pregnant it's okay baby," someone said. "She's definitely pregnant and beautiful," another commented, as one other wondered, "Why her body look like that . . . she pregnant." There was also one convinced fan who wrote, "Nicki is PREGNANT! My baby is THICK!"
Nicki has yet to respond to the speculation.
The pregnancy rumors aside, Nicki was visibly emotional during her acceptance speech at the gala, paying tribute to her former tourmate, Juice WRLD, who died on Sunday, December 8 after suffering seizure at Chicago Midway International Airport. Recalling a moment during the tour, she said, "He held my hand and told me to stay calm and pray. I was shocked that he told me that, but right there in that moment, I did feel calm and wondered, 'Hm, what am I actually worried about?' "
Pausing for a bit to prevent herself from crying, Nicki expressed regret for not doing "something to help." She continued, "I know this is a Women in Music night, and I'm honored to be in the presence of all these women. But it doesn't feel comfortable to talk about me when someone so important to our culture died."
Nicki went on talking about the struggle with addiction and told people "to be a little more forgiving and understanding, especially with entertainers. We can't have a bad day." Concluding her speech, she told entertainers, especially women, that they are "allowed to be human" and feel the way they want. "I just wanted to encourage everyone to talk about whatever it is they need to talk about, and be honest and open and get help," she ended her speech.
