Congratulations are in order for rapper Nicki Minaj as she welcomed her first child with husband Kenneth Petty on September 30. A source confirmed to People the exciting news.
Nicki Minaj And Kenneth Petty Welcome First Child
Back in July, Nicki made the pregnancy announcement on Instagram to her 123 million followers. Of course, her pictures were extravagant and colorful to match her iconic personality. Though we do not yet know the gender of the baby, could you imagine if Nicki gave birth to the next big rap goddess?
Nicki has been married to Kenneth Petty since October 21, 2019. He is a music industry professional that Nicki has been head over heels for since she met him. At first, she was very open about their relationship but has been a little quiet about it in recent years. After tying the knot, she even announced she would be retiring from the rap game to start a family. But, she has still continued to dominate the rap scene even after taking a step back with her feature on Kanye West’s song “New Body” going viral on TikTok. Now Nicki is enjoying her pregnancy bliss. In the first picture posted by the former American Idol judge, she wore a blue wig with a matching pink and blue outfit and ultra-high platform shoes.
Recently, Nicki posted a photo from a vacation in Trinidad. “While I was in Trinidad earlier this year, I had the worst morning sickness of all time” she captioned the post. “Didn’t know morning sickness could last all day either. But nevertheless, this is one of the pics I took b4 you could see my lil baby bump.”
