AceShowbiz - %cNicki Minaj% believes she strikes it gold with %cMeek Mill% but she is not yet ready to settle down with him. Even after two sparklers have perched on her finger, the "Anaconda" femcee insists that they are not engaged yet.
"I'm not engaged yet. He said that my third ring would be my engagement ring," Minaj tells Nylon magazine's April issue. "But sometimes he calls me his fiancee, and I'm always trying to stop him, like, 'Nope! I ain't got that third ring yet!' "
Minaj plans to take it slow at the moment and go all out in the end. "We're just taking it one step at a time. And, you know, if that happens, if I get married, then I'll have a child, and that'll be fun, because I can't wait to hold my baby," the 33-year-old quips.
And she is sure that Mill is the one. "When he and I were just friends, he would always say, 'You remind me of my mother, and I like that because you're like a dude. You're tough like a guy and you talk like a dude.' So, I always got the sense that me being tough and bossy was a turn-on for him. And it's important for me to keep my voice. Being in a relationship shouldn't mean that you lose your voice. Being in a relationship should mean that you've met a secure-enough man to allow you, in a sense, to remain a queen," she says.
She sure has kept up with her man when he got into trouble with the law due to violation of his probation. "He's not perfect, but I can't believe how much he's changed," she told a Philadelphia Common Pleas court judge on the 29-year-old's behalf late last year. "He doesn't have a lot of structure. He can be irresponsible. Since I've come into his life, I think I've been working on that a little bit. ...He's just getting accustomed to being an adult."
