Rumors are doing the rounds that Nicki Minaj is pregnant with Lil Wayne's baby.

A source revealed to Atlanta Daily World that Minaj was spotted with a baby bump on 2 January, while she was having a romantic dinner with another man. "She twice made toasts by drinking water instead of wine," an eyewitness said, adding that it is "highly unusual" for Minaj "to toast with anything but a full glass of wine."

The website reports that there was something between Minaj and Wayne but they were never serious. "Minaj was just out to have a good time one night, but she got the good time and more," it said.

The rumors have come as a surprise considering Minaj had once told MTV that Wayne is like a brother to her. "Not only is he my boss, but he's also like my brother," she said in April.

The "Pink Friday" rapper has been seeing other men, which has caused Wayne to doubt his paternity. The Atlanta Daily World stated two other names - Wayne's label mate Drake and producer DJ Khaled - hinting that one of the two could also possibly be the father of Minaj's rumored baby.

If the rumors turn out to be true, the baby will be Wayne's fifth child (he has four children with four different women) and Minaj's first.

The baby rumor was a hot topic of discussion on social networking sites as fans took to twitter to comment about Minaj's pregnancy status. They dissed the "Young Money" rappers and also expressed worries over their parenting skills.
