BEVERLY HILLS, July 21, (THEWILL) – Trinidadian-born rapper, Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, popularly called Nicki Minaj, has disclosed that she’s expecting her first child with Kenneth Petty, her husband, taking to Instagram Monday to share beautiful photos of her baby bump.
In one of the photos, the saucy rapper was wearing a tiny glitzy bikini and a bright yellow wig — posing on a pink chair and showing off her brightly made-up face.
“Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes,” she captioned one of the pictures.
THEWILL reports that the singer had previously hinted in 2019 that she was retiring from rapping to focus on starting a family with her husband.
“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, in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE,” she had written.
Also in June 2019, she told listeners in a radio show that she and her then boyfriend, Kenneth, had applied for a marriage license and would tie the knot later.

“We did get our marriage license. I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything,” she had said.
