Are we the only ones excited for this moment for life? Nicki Minaj is officially a mother.
The 37-year-old star is now in the mom’s club. E! News has confirmed that the Queen rapper welcomed her first child with husband Kenneth Petty on Wednesday, Sept. 30, in Los Angeles.
News of Nicki’s little one comes only a few months after she announced her pregnancy. Nicki first revealed her pregnancy back in July with a series of Instagram posts showing off her baby bump, one of which was captioned ”#preggers”.
The “Anaconda” hit maker first sparked speculation about her pregnancy in May after discussing her food cravings and feelings of ”nausea”. This is Nicki and Kenneth’s first child together, and exactly one year before welcoming their new born, the couple tied the knot in October 2019.
When one fan asked her if she had been cooking anything in recent weeks, she said: ”Absolutely. Steak. Shrimp. Plus my famous cheeseburgers. So good. Been rally having red meat cravings then salad cravings with extra jalapeños. Ordered Chkn nachos that didn’t come w/jalapeños. Who does that? Wow. (Sic)” Another fan then picked up on her comments and asked her: ”Are you also throwing up in morning and having to go to the bathroom a lot?” To which she replied: ”Lmao. No throwing up. But nausea and peeing nonstop. Omg what do u think this means guys???? Lmaooooooooooo. (Sic)”
These signs are pretty normal to most women and Nicki’s hints didn’t stop there, as when asked to ”post a baby bump picture”, she seemingly confirmed she is pregnant, as she told the fan they would have to wait ”a couple of months” to see her growing belly.
While the pair obtained a marriage license in July 2019, they didn’t officially share their wedding images or detail.
Congratulations Miss Barbie.
