  • Nicki Minaj just announced she’s pregnant.

  • She married Kenneth Petty in October 2019.

  • Fans have been convinced Nicki’s pregnant since February 2020 and reignited speculation when she released the “Trollz” music video in June.

It’s not even noon on a Monday and Nicki Minaj has already made my heart rate shoot through the roof! Legit just a few minutes ago, Nicki posted on her Instagram and officially announced she’s pregnant!

For those who don’t follow every single move Nicki makes, this may come as a surprise, but the Barbz have had a hunch for quite some time. Way back in February, Clevver reported that Nicki uploaded a video rubbing her stomach, which sparked major rumors. And when she released the “Trollz” music video and a bunch of behind-the-scenes pics in June, fans were convinced she was trying to hide her stomach.

But all that speculation can finally be put to rest because the picture she just posted speaks for itself. She also captioned it “#Preggers” for good measure. Nicki didn’t reveal her due date or whether she knows the sex of the baby, but she looks extremely happy and that’s all that matters right now.

In 2014, she told Complex, “[My biggest fear] is that I’ll become so consumed with work that I’ll forget to live my personal life to the fullest. If I’m done with my fifth album and I don’t have a child by then, no matter how much money I have, I would be disappointed, as a woman, because I feel like I was put here to be a mother.”

A month before Nicki married Kenneth Petty in October 2019, she announced she planned on retiring and starting a family. Although she later walked back her statement about retiring, she’s clearly following her dreams of having children.
