Nicki Minaj is a mom, for real!
The rapper reportedly delivered a baby on Sept 30th
in Los Angeles. It’s her first child with husband Kenneth Petty.
The new parents have not yet announced the gender
and the name of their child.
The 37-year-old rapper revealed the news of her
pregnancy in late July in a series of Instagram posts.
She posted a picture of herself, showing the side
view of her baby bump with the caption “#Preggers” and a heart emoji.
She uploaded more pictures of her swelling belly
with a caption that read, “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with
excitement & gratitude. Thank You all for the well wishes.”
The news of her pregnancy came just after the rapper
decided to retire from the industry but quickly drew back her decision.
Minaj and Petty got married in October after
almost a year of dating. At that time, Minaj shared the news with a video
illustrating “Mr. and Mrs.” mugs and matching “Bride” and “Groom” baseball
She wrote a caption “10.21.19” indicating that the
lovebirds have officially tied the knot on the mentioned date.
Their relationship went through some ups and downs
after Petty’s criminal record came forth. Petty is registered as a Level 2 sex
offender on New York State’s Sex Offender Registry.
Congratulations to the
couple and God help the child!
