Nicki Minaj is expecting her first child. The rapper, 37, shared the exciting news on July 20 by posting a photo of herself cradling her baby bump on Instagram. The caption simply read, "#Preggers." In true fashion, Nicki is wearing a bright yellow wig, colorful eye makeup, a whimsical bikini, and lots of accessories in the playful shot.
"Overflowing with excitement & gratitude."
Nicki then went on to share two additional shots seemingly from the same photo shoot. In her third post, Nicki wrote, "Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes." The news comes nearly a year after Nicki expressed a desire to retire from music and focus on starting a family. Shortly thereafter, on Oct. 21, 2019, Nicki wed Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, and the two dressed in Bride of Chucky costumes for Halloween that year.
