Tom Holland got Nicki Minaj pregnant? Bizarre hoax has Twitterati congratulating actor on becoming a father
Twitter gave birth to the bizarre claim that Holland was the baby's father by making fake Instagram posts attributed to the actor go viral
There have been many hoaxes surrounding actor Tom Holland that went viral on Twitter in recent times, including one where he was being canceled by the cancel culture for no apparent reason and when #TomHollandIsOverParty trended. The latest hoax is about the 'Spiderman' actor being the father of Nicki Minaj's unborn child.
On Monday, Minaj announced on Instagram that she was "preggers," along with a series of photos of her growing baby bump. She did not feel the need to reveal who the baby daddy was because every fan of hers knew that she is married to Kenneth Petty, so naturally one assumed that it was his child that the rapper was going to give birth to. However, Twitter, being Twitter, gave birth to the bizarre claim that Holland was the singer's baby's father by making fake Instagram posts attributed to the actor go viral on social media.
The caption of one such post read: "Since the word is already out, we just wanna say thank you to everyone congratulating us. Me and Nicki met on the Oscars and have been very close since then. This being the next part of our lives is very special to me because I now get to be a dad spoiling out kid with spidey stuffs. This all honestly feels surreal and I am so grateful. To Nicki, I love you and will always do. Can't wait for baby Holland"
The post even had a fake reply from Minaj, seemingly teasing Holland and also admitting at the same time about their kid that she was pregnant with. "That's baby minaj to you mr! Can't wait to see you be a dork in front of our baby," the reply said.
Soon many people across the world of social media started congratulating the couple, thinking that the posts from Holland were the real deal. "Congrats to Tom Holland and Nicki Minaj on their new baby," one wrote, while another said, "Tom Holland just addressed Nicki's pregnancy in a new instagram post! CONGRATS TO THEM." A third said, "Tom Holland expresses his excitement about his former girlfriend Nicki Minaj's pregnancy via Instagram story. 'It's just that I can imagine myself being a dad already, and the best part is that the mother is Nicki.' I'm so happy Congratulations to the couple! #preggers" And a fourth wrote: "Nicki Minaj has announce (sic) she is expecting her first child with husband Tom Holland! Best of luck to the happy couple"
However, if one was to visit Holland's Instagram page one can find no such post where Holland acknowledges that he was going to be Nicki Minaj's baby's father. In fact, the last post he posted was from three days ago. Some Twitter users even suggested that Holland made the announcement on Instagram Stories. That claim, too, does not seem true. However, not everyone got tricked by the fake news as many of them called the hoax out.
"I searched it and that's not true, Tom Holland isn't a Father and he isn't with Nicki Minaj he is dating with Nadia Park," one user said, while another commented, "The whole twitter & websites rly thought tom holland is nicki minaj’s baby daddy." A third wrote: "Not you guys saying tom holland’s the father of nicki’s child byee." A fourth wrote, "Guys is tom holland actually the dad or am i stupid."
