Drake, Nicki Minaj, Hug, Coachella


Nicki Minaj has kept her engagement to rapper Meek Mill relatively under the radar—excluding the picture of her larger-than-life engagement ring—so when she made a surprise appearance during Drake's Coachella performance Sunday to receive a hug from her longtime friend, we had to wonder if it was about her future husband.

"The love of my life," Drake refers to Nicki into the mic while motioning for her to join him onstage in a video that hit the Internet. "I love this girl right here, we family forever. Congratulations and all that."

The "Take Care" rapper then gave the "Starships" crooner a big hug before continuing his concert at the Indio, Calif., music festival. But when the two musicians went it for their emotional moment, her massive ring is pretty evident! Although neither Meek nor Nicki have explicitly said they're engaged, a source told E! News that they are set to tie the knot.

"Both Meek and Nicki have been spending amazing quality time together lately and have gotten extremely close these past few months," the insider shared. "It may seem like it all is happening very quickly but Nicki and Meek are in this 100. They truly love each other."

Their whirlwind romance will reach its peak at their future wedding, which another insider described to E! News will be similar to a fairy tale because he loves her so much.

"The wedding will likely happen sooner rather then later, it's just how their relationship has been going," the source told us. "Nicki has been waiting for this special day for some time and Meek wants to make it perfect and a fairy tale come true for her. This is such an exciting time in her life."

Too cute!

If her ring is any indication, the wedding will definitely be an affair to remember!

"This looks like a 15-carat fancy yellow heart modified brilliant cut diamond mounted in platinum with a double halo of white pavé diamonds," Morgan Shara of MASbisjoux jewelry told E! News. "This would retail for approximately $500,000."

Shara added that the ring "looks like the natural fancy colored diamond trend that is continuing full steam ahead."
