Nicki Minaj becomes a mother!
On Monday July 20, the superstar rapper went to Instagram to confirm that she was pregnant. A series of photos on the social media platform show a bikini-clad Minaj cradling her baby bump. The 37-year-old star has given one of her articles the title "#Preggers".
Shortly after Minaj announced her baby news, she thanked her fans for the good wishes. "Love. Marriage. Strollers. Overflowing with excitement and gratitude," she wrote.
This will be her first child with husband Kenneth Petty whom she married in October 2019 after more than a year of dating. As fans may recall, Minaj and Petty received marriage permits in July 2019, months before they officially announced the news.
"I think I am only lucky in what I was striving for," Minaj previously admitted. "It was so difficult to get to a happy place. Now that I'm there, I don't want to endanger anyone or anything."
Minaj also previously said that she was looking forward to becoming a mother and willing to give up her career to make this dream come true.
