Nicki Minaj Welcomes 1st Baby: Report


Nicki Minaj has reportedly welcomed her first child.

According to People and TMZthe baby was born Wednesday in Los Angeles. There was no immediate confirmation from the rapper or her reps.

Minaj, 37, went public with her pregnancy news in July by posting a series of colourful images on Instagram.

It is the first baby for Minaj, who married Kenneth Petty, 42, in 2019. He recently registered as a sex offender in California due to an attempted rape conviction in 1995.

Last September, Minaj tweeted: "I’ve decided to retire & have my family." She later apologized for the retirement announcement, calling it "abrupt & insensitive."

In a 2014 interview with L’Uomo Vogue, Minaj said: “I do not want to work all my life and never experience the joys of a family. It is not time yet, but when I decide to … become a mother I would like to take a break and devote myself completely to my child.” A year earlier, she told Elle about wanting to be a mother. “I was praying every day, ‘You know what, Lord? I want to be a mom one day, and I want to start becoming the woman who I want to parent my child.'"
