Nicki Minaj is preggers! The 37-year-old rapper confirmed she’s expecting her first baby with husband, Kenneth Petty, on Monday, July 20. Not only did she reveal she’s pregnant after months of speculation, but she also dropped the first baby bump photos, and based on the size, she’s well into the pregnancy.
Taking to her Instagram, the “Barbie Tingz” rapper casually showed off her very first baby bump shot and fans are going wild over her pregnancy announcement. This will be the first child for Nicki Minaj but according to reports, Kenneth Petty is already a daddy to five other children.
In Nicki Minaj’s pregnancy announcement, the “TROLLZ” rapper is seen wearing a colorful bikini with lots of jewels and proudly displaying her baby bump. Sitting on her knees while wearing a bright yellow big, the musician is happily cradling her growing belly.
Smiling big and wearing clear sky-high heels in the shot, Nicki Minaj is clearly sporting that new mom glow. She seems to have the nurturing vibes down too because she’s kept her baby bump shielded from cameras until she was ready to announce the news. “Preggers ?,” she captioned the snap.

Asking for a friend. ????.”
Fans immediately wild with baby theories, taking to her comment section to tell the rapper to quit playing with their emotions and just confirm her pregnancy already!

Nicki Minaj has been dropping clues that she’s pregnant for months, first beginning in May by telling fans that she’s been craving certain foods while in quarantine and was feeling nauseated. When fans began asking her to show her baby bump, the rapper didn’t deny the rumors instead telling her followers, “Yea in a couple of months. The world ain’t ready yet.” But it was the topless photo that Nicki Minaj recently shared that really sealed the pregnancy deal for fans.
