First came love, then came marriage and soon will come Nicki Minaj with a baby carriage. The rapper, singer, actress, songwriter, and model Nicky Minaj announced via her social media accounts that she is expectant.
The rapper, 37, shared a series of photos on her Instagram account showing her cradling her baby bump while dressed in a floral bikini, high heels, and colorful wigs. This will be her first child with her husband, Kenneth Petty. In September, Minaj shocked her fan after she announced she was retiring from music to raise a family. But she has since appeared on rapper 6ix9ine’s hit Trollz, and also topped the Billboard Hot 100 with a remix of Doja Cat’s Say So.
The following month after she retired, she again said that she had secretly married Petty and shared her marital bliss with a video of matching “Mr. and Mrs.” Mugs and coordinating “Bride” and Groom” baseball caps. Their romance proved controversial when it emerged Petty had been convicted of attempted rape and had also spent seven years in prison for manslaughter.
