Meek Mill is probably happy that his name is coming up for some reason other than constantly feuding with Drake. So what's distracting everyone from that spat now? Oh, just Nicki Minaj introducing him at a recent Burgettstown, Pennsylvania concert as "my baby father," immediately setting off waves of speculation that Minaj is in fact pregnant — and apparently a fan of mangling popular phrases. (Seriously, baby father? That just sounds awkward.)

As to whether there's any truth to baby talk, Minaj is being less than helpful, retweeting fan reactions to the rumor with just a series of crying laughing — or maybe just crying — emojis.

That could really mean a number of things. This is why people shouldn't release statements comprised entirely of emojis. It's an imperfect communication system, people.
