Huge congratulations are in order, as Nicki Minaj is officially a mom!
According to reports, the 37-year-old rapper gave birth to her first child with husband Kenneth Petty in Los Angeles on September 30.
The new parents have yet to announce their new arrival’s name or even gender; but if it’s going to be anything like her pregnancy reveal, we predict it’s going to be pretty big!
Click here to check out some of the stunning pictures from Nicki’s pregnancy announcement, which were taken by famed photographer David LaChappelle.
“Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes,” she wrote on Instagram at the time, as a caption for one of the pictures.
Nicki Minaj and her husband have double the celebrations this month, as they will also be celebrating their first wedding anniversary in a few weeks.
They obtained their marriage license in July last year, and then tied the knot at a Beverly Hills courthouse a few months later, on October 21.
In September last year, Nicki Minaj announced that she would be retiring from music to start her family…
“I’ve decided to retire and have my family,” she wrote on Twitter at the time.
“I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, in the box—cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE.”
Congratulations again to the proud new parents!
