Nicki Minaj has added yet another milestone to her hefty resume– of being a mom! Nicki Minaj has given birth to her first baby with hubby Kenneth Petty on 30th September in Los Angeles, as per recent reports. The couple is yet to confirm the news publicly.
The happy news of Nicki Minaj’s baby comes after her husband finally got his plea to be with her during her labour and travel as ‘her manager’ during business tours granted by a California judge. Kenneth “Zoo” Petty is currently in the middle of a trial after he failed to register as a sex offender as of March 2020. He was allowed to travel with Minaj on the condition that he would resume wearing his ankle monitor and will not indulge in the use of any kind of narcotics or illicit drugs.
After months of sendig out mixed signals and setting the rumours mills running, Nicki Minaj, 37, announced in July this year on Instagram that she was pregnant with her first baby with Kenneth Petty. She made the revelation in her usual over-the-top style and posted glamorous snapshots of herself, which included her being clad in an intricately designed bejewelled bra, transparent platform heels studded with pearls while she cradled her baby bump.
“#Preggers 💛,” Minaj captioned the first image, followed by two more images of which one shows her lounging on a pink couch, “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. 💛”
The big announcement of Nicki Minaj’s baby on the way comes nine months after she and Petty tied the knot and 10 months after she announced that she has concrete plans of saying goodbye to the spotlight as she wants to focus on her family now. “I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me … Love you for LIFE,” read her tweet.
But then the celebrated rapper went ahead, and in true Nicki Minaj fashion, mysteriously deleted the tweet. Post this dubious retirement announcement, she has revealed that she is working on a new album with Adele. While answers pertaining to the future of her music career are still stuck with a question, for the time being, the new mommy will be busy marvelling at the bundle of joy she has been blessed with!
