Nicki Minaj is pregnant with her first child with husband Kenneth Petty.
The 37-year-old rapper, who got married last year, announced the exciting baby news with a glam shot of herself cradling her bump on social media.
She captioned the photo: “#Preggers ?”
Nicki shared a couple of other photos from the pregnancy photoshoot, all of them featuring the mother-to-be dressed in bright and sparkling attire, with her growing bump on display.
Alongside one of the pictures, she wrote: “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage.
“Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”
Friends and fans were quick to tell Nick how excited they were for her in the comments section.
La La Anthony said: “Congrats Nick!! U look beautiful! GLOWING!”
Black Ink Crew’s Donna Marie Lombardi wrote: “I knew it!!!!! CONGRATS BABEEEEE! We can’t wait to meet BABY MINAJJJJJJJ!
Singer Tinasha commented, “CONGRATS QUEEN,” while The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss sent over her own “Congratulations!!!!!”
Sam Smith, Halle Berry, Juicy J, Kristin Cavallari, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson and more also sent over their love.
Barbz started to suspect Nicki was pregnant earlier this year after she hinted at such with a slew of tweets.
Just a day after her ex Meek Mill welcomed a baby boy with girlfriend Milano Harris in May, Nicki tweeted about all of the food “cravings” she was having.
Fans took that kernel of information and followed it up by asking if she also happened to be “throwing up in the morning” and going to the bathroom a lot.
She revealed she had been feeling nauseous “and peeing nonstop,” and then asked, “Omg what do u think this means guys???”
Continuing down that train of thought, another question during her online Q&A asked if she could “post a baby bump pic.”
Nicki implied her pregnancy when she wrote back: “Yea in a couple months. The world ain’t ready yet,” alongside emoji’s of happy faces and hearts.
She kept her promise and a little over two months later, she has now officially announced her baby news with a trio of baby bump pics.
The Trollz rapper married her husband Kenneth, in 2019 after less than a year of dating.
