Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have been denying rumors of an engagement for awhile despite seeming to be very happy in their relationship. At music awards they are seen supporting each other and on Instagram Minaj often posts about photos of them together.
But now Minaj posted yet another picture of a ring Mill gave her…but this time it’s not the heart-shaped ring that sent rumors flying a few months. On Wednesday night Minaj posted two pictures of a new ring that very much resembles an engagement ring and tagged Mill in her post. And with the pop singer celebrating her 33rd birthday just a day ago, this would certainly be an exciting time for a proposal.
Sources have confirmed the two are happy in previous interviews but neither Minaj nor Mill have confirmed an engagement. Minaj has said she wants to get married and have children in the past.
Although they haven’t been dating for long, Minaj planted the idea of engagement when she posted this image below back in May. The couple denied this was a wedding ring, but now that Minaj has received another diamond present from Mill, rumors will surely continue.
Minaj did say in a recent interview with GQ, which Minaj and Mill posed for their first photo shoot together in, that her mother and some other family members were a little skeptical of the relationship.
“Everybody was just scared. Those women were scared for me because when I love someone I really let them in, and I really let [my] guard down, and I think it’s only natural for a mother to just you know, she just wanted to make sure I wasn’t rushing into anything.”
Minaj also added that she feels her relationship with Mill is normal just like anyone else’s. She thinks the main thing that makes it not normal is the fact that they are celebrities.
I definitely think we have a normal relationship off-camera. We’re like any other couple in the hood. We’re growing as a couple and as people and as human beings, but we still have our careers. And I think probably the only thing that makes it un-normal is that we’re both successful artists, and that’s probably not normal. But other than that, our feelings are very normal. Like, if I were to speak to a hundred girls right now about what they go through with their boyfriend, we’d probably have stuff in common.
In the GQ interview, published in September 2015, the couple also talks about being on tour together now. Minaj explains that they would miss each other a lot when they were working separately and while the anticipation of seeing each other after being gone for a while was exciting, they really like being working together. “Now when we’re on tour together it just feels like a dream come true. In so many ways,” says Minaj.
And as for Mill, he revealed in the interview that the two were talking for a while and what he liked most about her was her work ethic and that she’s independent.
“That you were doing your thing. A lot of people coming up. People don’t really have a girlfriend that’s doing more than them or the same thing. I like girls that hustle. She a boss…”
She also recently enjoyed her brother Jelani Maraj’s wedding a few months ago. Her brother has also recently been in the news for being accused of raping a 12-year-old girl. He is being charged with first degree rape and was released on a 100,000 bail.
