It is the first child of Nicki (37) and her husband Kenneth Petty (42), whom she married in 2019. She announces the news with a series of photos.

There was also a rumor in 2017 that Minaj would be pregnant, of her then lover and fellow rapper Nas. That proved not to be true and the two separated in early 2018, after a seven-month relationship.

Petty has been with Minaj since late 2018. Last September, the rapper even announced that she would retire to focus on her private life and children. Not much later, she came back to that sudden decision, after fans responded in shock.

In any case, with the announced pregnancy, Nicki seems to continue the plan to start a family.
