Lil Nas X announced his new album with a ‘pregnancy’ reveal and ahead of its release it seems the star is now, ahem, going into labour.

The rapper, 22, sparked debate earlier this month by rocking a fake baby bump to announce he was expecting his new album in a pregnancy themed shoot with People magazine.

Of course, it was all tongue-in-cheek and a creative way to share news of his upcoming record, but that didn’t stop some people from calling the move distasteful, with Lil Nas X facing backlash from some fans as a result.

Still, brushing off the criticism, the artist is sticking with the theme and ahead of his album, titled Montero after his real name Montero Lamar Hill, dropping on Friday, he shared a video of him appearing to go into labour on Twitter.

In the three-second long clip, Lil Nas X is seen back with his baby bump and tweeted he was ‘having ‘contractions’.

Wrapping his arms around his bump, he was heard panting and sitting on the toilet as he revealed: ‘I think it’s coming, I think the baby’s coming…’

Again, he faced a slew of criticism, with some people claiming the Old Town Road hit-maker had gone ‘too far’ and others slightly baffled by the video as they called it ‘weird’ and ‘wrong’.

We doubt Lil Nas X will pay too much attention to the haters, as he was previously seen hitting back at his critics following his ‘pregnancy’ shoot.

Responding to one person calling him ‘ugly’ and ‘too much’, he responded: ‘You really on here calling a young mother to be ugly?’

Shutting down the negative comments and continuing with his baby narrative, he then tweeted: ‘Let me get offline, all of this negative energy is not good for the baby.’

He had previously addressed the pregnancy concept in his interview with People and revealed it was inspired by Megan Thee Stallion.

After hearing her verse on his song Dolla Sign Slime, Lil Nas X said: ‘I was like, “Oh my God, this is amazing,” so I immediately called my stylist.’

Following the shoot came Lil Nas X hosting himself a baby shower, as he posed once again with his faux bump while tucking into cupcakes with his album cover on.

His debut album Montero sees the star collaborate with a whole host of famous faces including Sir Elton John, who previously labelled the artist as a ‘hero of mine’ when Lil Nas X presented him with the icon award at the iHeart Radio Music Awards.

Also featured on Lil Nas X’s album are Miley Cyrus, who appears on a track titled Am I Dreaming, and Doja Cat.

Prior to the launch of his first album, Lil Nas X was seen making his mark on the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala held in New York.

The theme was American Independence and Lil Nas X went all out with his red carpet look that featured multiple layers including a gold suit of armour underneath a huge regal cape.

Sharing snaps of his red carpet moment to social media, he confessed: ‘Definitely having a moment,’ with Reese Witherspoon giving her seal of approval and Donatella Versace describing his look as ‘ABSOLUTELY DIVINE’.

Lil Nas X’s debut album, Montero, is out on September 17.
