Everyone is freaking out over Nicki Minaj's huge baby bump

Wait, what?

Wait, what?

After Beyonce's pregnancy announcement photo last week almost broke the internet and became the most liked Instagram of all time, it seems she's sparked a bit of a social media trend. Because Nicki Minaj has now uploaded a picture of herself with a big baby bump, too.

She wrote: 'I was gonna wait to share the news but...'

While people instantly went wild over what looked like another celebrity social media pregnancy announcement at first glance, some users quite rightly pointed out that it was very likely to have been photoshopped.

We're sorry if we got your hopes up, but there are many other A-listers welcoming celebrity babies into the world this year (including Beyoncé who, in case you've been living under a rock this last week, is pregnant with twins).

Nicki Minaj isn't one of them, though.

Well played, Nicki. You had us fooled for just a sec.
