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 caps.
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!
