Nicki Minaj has revealed she’s expecting her first child with her husband Kenneth Petty.
The 37-year-old rapper, singer and songwriter shared the news on Instagram with a photo of herself holding her bare baby bump.
“Preggers,” she captioned the shot.
In another photo Minaj posted, she wrote: “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement and gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”
Rumours have been swirling that Minaj is expecting her first child.
Back in May, she tweeted about having “cravings”. On Twitter, she was asked if she had been been cooking during the pandemic, to which she replied: “Absolutely. Steak. Shrimp. Plus my famous cheeseburgers. So good. Been really having red meat cravings then salad cravings with extra jalapeños.”
Fans were so convinced, many asked her to reveal her baby bump, to which she replied back: “In a couple of months, the world ain’t ready yet.”
Yea in a couple months. The world ain’t ready yet 🥰☺️😘 https://t.co/E5bf12pAek— Mrs. Petty (@NICKIMINAJ) May 7, 2020
And then, in June 2020, fans were convinced they spotted a “baby bump” in her music video ‘Trollz’ with rapper Tekashi.
It seems like Minaj is now ready to let the world know she’s expecting. While it’s her first child, her husband Kenneth Petty reportedly already has five children from previous relationships.
The couple dated in their teens but reconnected in 2018 and married in October 2019.
