Nicki Minaj and J. Cole Are Overjoyed That Beyonce Is Pregnant
Kelly Rowland isn't the only person who is excited for Beyonce's big pregnancy announcement! The Boombox caught up with Nicki Minaj and J. Cole after the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards and got their thoughts on Bey and Jay-Z's baby news.
In her lovable outrageous fashion, Nicki Minaj called first dibs on the godmother role. "My baby Beyonce! I will be the godmother," Minaj told The Boombox with a grin. Minaj is friends with the couple, and although we're sure that she will get an invite to the Christening, we're not sure if she is godmother material. After all, the fairy godmother character in her 'Moment 4 Life' video would certainly scare a small child (see here).
Rapper J. Cole, who is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label, was also excited for the couple. "[It's] incredible," he told The Boombox. "I feel like the whole world feels like we having a baby. How wild is that? You can't help but smile, it's incredible. It's crazy. The way they told the world was so gangsta and it's so not even their style, which made it even better. They're so not flashy with their news but I feel like it's cool that they shared that with the world. They knew that it was important news for the world, to us, the fans."
J. Cole also said that Jay and Bey will probably name their baby 'Brooklyn Carter' if it's a girl. It's a fair assumption too, since Jay-Z himself rapped that 'Brooklyn' is the name he would give to his daughter on his 2007 track 'Hello Brooklyn.'
Congrats again to Beyonce and Jay-Z on their first baby! That will be one gorgeous and talented child!
