Hip-hop artist Meek Mill knows the way to Nicki Minaj's heart and it is with a giant heart-shaped ring. Their whirlwind romance might have started mere months ago, but things are serious.

Minaj took to her Instagram account on Wednesday to share a close-up photo of her left hand and showed off the bling she was wearing. The "Starships" singer had teased engagement news on Twitter earlier that day by sharing a diamond ring emoji with the words, "I'll post it later." In a few hours, she posted the picture of the ring.

Jeweler Shari Fabrikant, of Robert Fabrikant Inc. in Manhattan, estimates that the ring is an 8- to 10-carat fancy yellow diamond and should retail for nearly $500,000. Celebrity news website E! consulted another jeweler, who said that the ring appeared to be 15 carats.

Nicki Minaj and longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels broke up last year after more than a decade together. Minaj has a song titled "Buy a Heart" off her new "The Pinkprint" album.

Kendall mum on Dad

Kendall Jenner made it clear that she did not want to talk about her dad, Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, during her interview in the new issue of GQ.

"That's not about me, so we can move on," she told magazine's Zach Baron when he asked if she was uncomfortable over the many headlines about her dad's apparent gender transition.

When Baron asked whether the 19-year-old model feels upset over stories about her father, she replied, "That is not for me to answer."
