The Old Town Road, Lil Nas X, said that he is ‘expecting’ his next album. He announced his pregnancy with a ‘pregnancy pictorial’ with People, which surprised the internet. His self-titled first album Montero will be released on September 17th, according to reports. The musician sported a white flowing robe with cream rose flower crown while holding his baby bump in an over-the-top portrait published on September 2.
Is Lil Nas X really pregnant?
In an over-the-top photograph published on Sept. 2, the musician wore a white flowing robe with a cream rose flower crown while cradling his “baby bump.”
He captioned photos from the shoot with the phrase “SURPRISE!” “I can’t believe I’m finally making this announcement. MONTERO, my little bundle of joy, is expected on September 17, 2021.”
He then included a modified image of his album cover superimposed onto an ultrasound photo for good measure. On Twitter, he taunted, “These contractions are killing me.”
Despite what the incredibly realistic maternity photo session he posted might suggest, Lil Nas X isn’t actually pregnant.
The rapper took the images to promote his upcoming album, which he refers to as ‘his baby’ and will be released later this month. The rapper released a pregnant pictorial, taking the phrase literally.
In addition, he’s wearing a white robe with a flower crown and a large baby bump in the images.
What’s the story?
The photoshoot takes place only days after Lil Nas X appeared to mock Drake’s cover art for his new album, Certified Lover Boy. Also, Drake shared a photo of the cover art for his album, which displays 12 pregnant women emojis with various hair and complexion tones.
However, he quickly responded with his own rendition, which featured 12 pregnant guys — a particularly poignant image given his recent “pregnancy” announcement.
What is public’s take of Lil Nas X pregnancy?
The star’s admirers were ecstatic to see him try something new. Moreover, YouTube wrote in a message to Lil, “So happy for you.”
However, while many of his followers praised him for his originality and ingenuity, others were critical of his images and videos. The 22-year-old rapper responded to the negative comments about his album pregnancy photoshoot by clapping back to them.
