Nicki Minaj has sparked speculation she is engaged and expecting her first child.

The Anaconda rapper shared a picture of herself with her current boyfriend Kenneth 'Zoo' Petty as she promoted her collaboration with Chance the Rapper on new track Zanies And Fools.

In her verse Minaj, 36, raps: “He the Clyde to my Bonnie, ’bout to walk down the aisle and be a mommy.

“I remember when I cried like ‘why me?’ Now I wouldn’t Exchange my life for Armani.”

The Bang Bang star posted an image of herself with convicted felon Petty, and captioned it with lyrics from the track, sparking speculation that she is indeed pregnant.

However, in the latest episode of her online show Queen Radio Minaj played down the rumours, saying: "I don't have no big announcements, I said the big announcement was Queen Radio."

She did refer to Petty as her “husband” on the show and she also had some strong words for critics of their relationship.

Minaj said: "How f***ing dare you talk about lowering standards.”

She added:"It's the truth, money cannot buy me happiness and good sex.”

Minaj has previously revealed she has known Petty - who is a registered sex offender having been convicted of attempted rape back in 1995 - since they were teenagers. Last month she revealed they had filed for a marriage licence.
