She previously sparked pregnancy speculation in early May, when she tweeted, "No throwing up. But nausea and peeing non stop. Omg what do u think this means guys????"

Minaj then teased she would be sharing a baby bump photo "in a couple months", adding: "The world ain't ready yet" and she asked fans for tips on the size bra to wear to fit her swollen boobs.
 

The "Anaconda" hitmaker has had motherhood on her mind for years. Back in 2014 she told Complex magazine, "(I fear) I'll become so consumed with work that I'll forget to live my personal life to the fullest. If I'm done with my fifth album and I don't have a child by then, no matter how much money I have, I would be disappointed, as a woman, because I feel like I was put here to be a mother..."

She added, "I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order. I've always felt like that since I was young; my mother always put that in my head."

Minaj and Petty tied the knot in October 2019.

Katy Perry is pregnant with her first child at age 35. The "It Takes 2" singer announced the happy news that she and fiancé Orlando Bloom are expecting a baby together in her "Never Worn White" music video, which she dropped on Wednesday night. At the end of the video, the camera panned away and showed Katy cradling her growing bump.

In an Instagram Live after the video's release, Katy told fans that the baby is due this summer.

"There's a lot that will be happening this summer," she grinned. "Not only will I be giving birth, literally, but also figuratively to something you guys have been waiting for. So let's just call it a double whammy. It's a two-for.

Katy added that she's been struggling with pregnancy cravings, and carries a bottle of hot sauce around with her wherever she goes. She also admitted she's been eating "the same burrito for weeks on end."

Katy and Orlando plan a June wedding. According to the New York Post's Page Six gossip column, the pair hopes to exchange vows in Japan - a country they both love. However, their dream may not be able to become reality due to the coronavirus spread halting airline travel to Asia.

After announcing her pregnancy, Katy took to Twitter to tell her fans she was "so glad" she didn't have to "suck in" her bump any more, adding: "or carry around a big purse lol."

Women who fall pregnant after age 34 are at increased risk for complications. A high-risk pregnancy is one that threatens the health or life of the mother and her unborn baby. It often requires specialized care.

More women are opting to freeze their eggs while still in their 20s if they plan to pursue a career before starting a family.

While the baby will be the first for Katy, Orlando, 43, is already father to nine-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

The couple's pregnancy news comes after they celebrated the one-year anniversary of their engagement on Valentine's Day last month.

Back in July, video surfaced online that showed singer Keke Wyatt rubbing her pregnant belly. In the video, Keke performed her hit song "My First Love," while caressing her belly bump.

As if her pregnancy wasn't already obvious for months, the Indiana native just confirmed her pregnancy again.

On Tuesday, the 37-year-old reality TV star shared a portrait on Instagram.com in which she cradles her huge belly bump while immersed in a bathtub filled with milk and rose petals.

She captioned the image:

"My husband Zackariah Darring and I are so happy to announce that we are expecting our new bundle of joy! We are excited to welcome the 10th addition to our beautiful family. Stay tuned for the release date & information for my new YouTube Series “The Keke Show” where you will see me balancing Wife, Mommy and Artist!!! Trust me.. it’s never a dull moment with my family. Love ya sugars".

In September Keke showed off her growing baby bump at the Black Music Honors in Atlanta. She was rudely attacked online for daring to procreate for the 10th time.

Keke's fans rushed to defend her decision to fall pregnant even though she is past the safe age of egg viability.

"Whether she's pregnant or not... she still look good. Plus she's MARRIED and if they want 20 kids then that’s their business," one Instagram user wrote.

Keke, who welcomed her 9th child in 2017, was 18 years old when she married her road manager, Rahmat Morton. She allegedly stabbed Morton with a kitchen knife in 2001. They divorced in 2009 after years of domestic violence incidents.

Keke relocated her three children from Kentucky to Atlanta, where she starred in the reality TV show R&B Divas. She was pregnant with her 4th child at the time, but she suffered a miscarriage. The TV series helped her pay her bills after she married Michael Jamar, an unemployed ordained minister.

Keke and Jamar welcomed two more children and he brought a daughter from a previous relationship into their marriage. The couple divorced in 2018 when she was eight months pregnant with her 9th child, Zachariah.
