They went public with their romance just two months ago, but it looks like Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are already preparing to take things to the next level.

The Young Money star has ignited speculation that she is engaged to the rapper, whose real name is Robert Rahmeek Williams, after posting a snap of a heart-shaped rock on her wedding finger.

Minaj first sparked rumours that she is set to tie the knot, when she uploaded a photo of her and her new beau captioned "Miami Nights" and wrote on social media: "I wish every night could feel like last night."

After eagle-eyes fans noticed the ring on her finger, the Pinkprint hitmaker sent her Barbs into a frenzy by posting a diamond ring emotion on Twitter, teasing "I'll post it later" before finally sharing a close-up of her new accessory on Instagram.

Her timeline was soon flooded with congratulatory messages.

But some fans couldn't hide their shock.

In 2014, Minaj split from longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels after 12 years of dating.

After their messy break-up, Samuels has had all his tattoos of Minaj either erased or covered up with new ink. Minaj told her Twitter followers she was "single and ready to mingle".

During a recent interview on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Samuels hinted that Minaj preferred the single life.

"If that's who she decides to move on with, it is what it is," he said."I'm not mad, I'm not bitter because if I wanted to make it work, I could've made it work."

He added, "He don't owe me nothing. He's not the childhood friend I grew up with."

But Minaj insisted that she wanted to start a family, but wanted to get married first.

"I want to make sure I do it in that order. I've always felt like that since I was young; my mother always put that in my head," she explained.
