Nicki Minaj Welcomes 1st Baby: Report
Nicki Minaj has reportedly welcomed her first child.
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.'"
