The 37 year old ‘Anaconda’ rapper announced on Instagram with a series of glam snapshots showing her glowing baby bump that she’s expecting her first child with husband Kenneth Petty. Months ago, many were surprised to hear that Nicki had married Petty after dating for just a few months. she uploaded pictures from her maternity shoot on Instagram and in one post of her cradling her belly she hash-tagged ‘Preggers’, in another post (Minaj lounging on a pink couch) she said love marriage baby carriage overflowing with excitement and gratitude thank you all for the well wishes.

The happy news comes nine months after she and Petty tied the knot. TMZ previously reported that Minaj and Petty, who made their relationship Instagram official in December 2018  first dated when she was 16 years old and living in Queens. The outlet also reported that Minaj has referred to him as “one of her first loves” and is “confident he’s matured” over the years.

She seems to be very far along in her pregnancy and she might be really close to her due date. The rapper’s loyal fans were convinced she was pregnant in May when Nicki dropped the ‘Say So (Remix)’ with Doja Cat and teased she was having cravings during a Twitter Q&A. she said there are definitely a few hidden messages in the remix only my best babies will unlock the secrets. She wasn’t shy about dropping hints that she was expecting, she talked about some of the food cravings she was having and some of the symptoms that she was experiencing and when one fan asked her to post a baby bump pic she said yeah in a couple of months the world ain’t ready yet. People thought that she was trolling but she was being serious she was actually pregnant this whole time. Fans are also speculating that Nikki might be be pregnant with twins just based on the color scheme she used, they’re saying that she might be pregnant with a boy and a girl and also back in June she made a post on twitter saying pf2. Initially some people thought that she was teasing the sequel to her pink Friday album however some of her fans are thinking that she might have been trying to say that she’s pregnant for two. However these are assumptions, but now that the cat is out of the bag, lets just say that Nikki did save 2020!
