Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty are officially parents! According to previous reports, the rapper gave birth to her first child, and now the female presenter herself confirmed that she is indeed a new mom!
As you may have heard from various reports earlier this month, Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty welcomed their bundle of joys on September 30th.
What fans weren’t 100 percent sure about was the newborn’s gender, but now Minaj went to her IG account to confirm she’d welcomed a baby boy!
Not only that, but the star posted a series of pictures that featured all of the great gifts some of her celebrity friends had sent to celebrate their new life.
The famous people who have been so thoughtful are Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Beyonce and more!
In the caption, Nicki Minaj thanked them and also announced the gender of their baby. He wrote: “Many thanks to Queen B, Kim and Ye, Riccardo Tisci, Winnie, Karol and everyone who sent good wishes during this time. It meant the world to me. I am so grateful and in love with my son. Madly in love. My favorite liddo boy in the whole world. ‘
The happy parents tied the knot in October a year ago!
Last summer, the rapper featured on Lil Wayne’s Apple Music series Young Money Radio about their marriage.
She said, “I didn’t think it would be as refreshing and calming as it is. Even if you’re not married, when you have someone who feels like your soulmate or someone who understands you, you just feel like you are up on top. ‘
Nicki must be really happy to have her baby, especially since it’s a boy, something she publicly expressed what she wanted before.
During an interview with Complex in 2012, she shared, “I really need a boy in my life. A little boy. Because … I am so connected to my little brother and I felt that this was my real son. And guys, they are just like that, I don’t know … My heart just melts when I see them. ‘
