Nicki Minaj is pregnant! The star Trinidadian-American rapper is expecting her first child with hubby Kenneth Petty. She announced the happy new on her Instagram account in style, complete with a rainbow-colored pregnancy photo shoot showing off her cute baby bump.
Minaj may now be a married mama, but she seems to be keeping her signature colorful style during her pregnancy. Shot by David LaChapelle, the photo shoot features the Trini rapper in her iconic colorful wigs, girly lace, sequins and iconic pink hues.
“Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude,” the rapper wrote in her caption for her fans. “Thank you all for the well wishes.” The new comes nine months since she tied the knot with Petty, which she also announced in a surprise Instagram post to fans. She recently shared with People magazine how much she’s enjoying this new stage in her life.
“When you have someone that feels like your soulmate or someone who understands you, it just makes you feel like you’re on top of the world,” Minaj said.
The happy news may mean fans will have to wait a while for any new music from the star. Though Barbies (the nickname for followers of the rapper) have had tons of new music to enjoy this year. Minaj finally scored her first No. 1 single as a lead artist on the Billboard Hot 100, with her fierce remix of Dojo Cat’s “Say So.” Then this past June, the star grabbed her second chart-topper on the Hot 100 with “Trollz,” a collar track with rapper 6ix9ine.
