Report: Nicki Minaj Welcomes First Child

Rapper Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty’s bundle of joy is reportedly here!

TMZ reports Minaj, 37, gave birth on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

The gender and name of the baby are currently unknown.

Minaj announced her pregnancy in July.

Along with posting pics of her baby bump, she wrote, “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. 💛”

The pregnancy news came just nine months after Nicki and Kenneth tied the knot.

In a since-deleted tweet posted last year, Nicki expressed her desire to have a family, writing, “I've decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me … Love you for LIFE.”

Minaj would later backpedal on her words, posting, “The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe ❤️🙏.”

“In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be,” she added. “I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything.”
