By the time Nicki Minaj is confirmed to be engaged, she's going to be swimming in diamonds.
The 33-year-old rapper and her 28-year-old boyfriend, fellow hip-hop artist Meek Mill, sparked engagement rumors in April when she revealed a 15-carat yellow heart-shaped sparkler surrounded by a double halo of tiny diamonds. Speculation the two plan to wed mounted further this week when Minaj showed off a birthday present he gave her, a ring made up of a clear, enormous diamond set in a single halo on an eternity band.
"He and I are not engaged," Minaj told Billboard magazine, which features her on Dec. 19 "Year in Music 2015" issue, posing topless. "But he said he would like to give me three rings before we get married."
The rapper's comments were posted on the outlet's website on Thursday and were made before her birthday.
"My birthday's coming up, and he better get the new one, because he got [the first one] for my last birthday," she told Billboard.
A source told E! News exclusively that Meek Mill "loves to shower Nicki with Diamonds," adding, "He always has and always will. She loves diamonds in all shapes and big sizes. It symbolizes his love."
