We know an engagement ring selfie when we see one. Or at least we thought we did... When Nicki Minaj snapped a slew of photos back in December of her big (and we mean big) diamond sparkler, we were instantly hearing wedding bells for her and her boyfriend for over a year, rapper Meek Mill. And why wouldn't we be? The impressive bling Minaj couldn't help but show off practically screamed engagement ring, with its stunning stone and the fact that it occupied that finger. We were expecting our invitation in the mail any day now, but unfortunately, it looks like we might have to wait a little longer for these two to tie the know. On her recent talkshow appearance, the "Anaconda" singer gave us an engagement update and it's not exactly what we expected.
Show off a sparkler that gorgeous and it's guaranteed to get people asking some questions — especially talkshow hosts! Ellen DeGeneres couldn't help but ask just what that big bling meant when Minaj appeared on her Wednesday show. "First of all, that's not an engagement ring," the singer stated. But before you totally lose hope, Minaj further explained the situation with her sweetheart.
"I have two rings from this boy that likes me. That's not my engagement ring though," she said. "He said that that's my second ring and that if I get a third ring that that would be the engagement ring." Three rings?! Minaj is one lucky soon-to-be bride-to-be!

And of course DeGeneres said what we're all thinking. "That boy has money," the talkshow host hilariously quipped. (One look at the epic rock and there's no denying that!) But it sounds like the "Super Bass" singer isn't letting sheer carat count get in the way of what's important. In fact, when DeGeneres asked about the size of her not-yet- engagement ring, Minaj remained tight-lipped. "No matter how great your life is, you can't even impress people," Minaj said of the ring and her romantic relationship. "You just have to do you and make yourself happy and forget about trying to get everyone's approval. It's better just to keep those things sacred."
Does this mean Minaj and Meek Mill will be the next celeb couple to hop on the secret celebrity wedding train? All we have to say is, she better give us a peek at that third (!) ring, first!
