Lil Nas X left the internet shocked after partaking in a pregnancy shoot. Talking to PEOPLE, the 22-year-old said he is expecting his debut album
Shedding light on the inspiration behind his photoshoot, Lil Nas X (né Montero Lamar Hill) said it struck him to do the shoot after listening to Megan Thee Stallion’s verse on his new song “Dolla Sign Slime” for the first time.
“I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing,’ so I immediately called my stylist,” he says. “She was like, ‘Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, this is my baby, huh?’ As a joke, she was like, ‘Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.'”
“I was like, ‘You know what? That’s actually brilliant,'” he continues. “So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it’s going to be amazing.”
On Monday, Lil Nas posted a spoof to Instagram of Drake’s Certified Lover Boy cover art featuring several pregnant women emojis with the difference being that his features pregnant men.

When asked about the conceptualisation of his album, Nas said, “I guess I am the father as well as the mother.”
“But I guess the producers who worked on it are like the dads too,” he says, before giving it another thought: “Or maybe uncles.”
