Nicki Minaj welcomes her first child with Kenneth Petty

Congrats Nicki!

Nicki Minaj has reportedly given birth to her first child with husband Kenneth Petty.

An exclusive source told People that Minaj and Petty welcomed their baby on September 30 in Los Angeles. The couple, who tied the knot in October 2019, have yet to confirm the news or reveal their newborn’s name.

The rapper announced her pregnancy in late July with a series of photos on Instagram. In the pictures, Minaj showed off her baby bump while decked out in neon wigs and quirky bikinis. “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes,” she wrote in the caption of one of the posts.


Following the pregnancy reveal, a source close to Minaj told Harper’s Bazaar that the rapper “feels so blessed right now.” “She wanted to become a mom for so long—she prayed hard—and now it’s happening,” the source said. “She’s just the happiest woman right now. And so excited for the day she gets to meet him or her.”

Prior to her pregnancy, Minaj released her solo single “Yikes.” She also went on to release collaborations with Doja Cat and Tekashi 6ix9ine.
