Did you see this one coming? Rapper Nicki Minaj is pregnant with her first child! She made the announcement on Instagram to her 118 million followers. Of course, her pictures were extravagant and colorful to match her iconic personality. Take a look below at her pregnancy announcement.
Nicki Minaj Is Pregnant And Expecting First Child With Kenneth Petty
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. 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.
In the second photo, Nicki opted for a yellow wig and a bra clad with miniature rattles and pacifiers along with a pair of pink bikini bottoms. Again, she wore those ultra-high platform heels that look like they are impossible to walk in. She simply captioned the photo with the hashtag #preggers.
In 2015, the now 37-year-old told Cosmopolitan “Ten years from now, I will have two children unless my husband wants three. I will be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting, and I’ll be a housewife with careers that I can run from home.” She also outlined how she would be super involved as a mother saying “I want to be able to cook for my children, bake cookies for them, and watch them grow up. I just want to be a mommy. Take them to school, go to the parent-teacher conference, help them with their homework, and put their work on the refrigerator.” She thanked fans for all of their well wishes in another post showing off her bump. She captioned the photo “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”
Did Nicki Post A Clue That She Was Expecting?
Back in June, Nicki collaborated with rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine on the song “Trollz” and wore some barely-there outfits. One outfit in particular featured star-shaped nipple covers and silver high waisted shorts. The comments flooded with pregnancy speculation at the time, and now after this pregnancy announcement, more people are starting to realize that Nicki was pregnant during this time.
In another photo, Nicki covered up her stomach with her hands and wore a white puffer jacket as she posed with Tekashi. Nicki recently told Complex “If I’m done with my fifth album and I don’t have a child by then, no matter how much money I have, I would be disappointed, as a woman, because I feel like I was put here to be a mother.” The rapper has four studio albums and a multitude of success to show for herself as she takes on the next role of motherhood.
Nicki’s Instagram comments erupted with fans who are shocked and overjoyed for the rapper and think she will be an amazing mother. Singer Sam Smith wrote, “Congratulations beautiful.” And actress Halle Berry wrote “YES Congratulations beauty!!!!”
Congratulations to Nicki as she finally will become a mother, something she has always dreamed of and envisioned for herself.
