New York City, United States — Famous rapper, Nicki Minaj announces her first pregnancy.

Minaj posted three pictures on her Instagram, one with the caption “#Preggers” and another reading: “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”

The father of Minajs first child is Kenneth Petty, who Minaj married in 2019. “I didn’t think it would be as refreshing and calming as it is,” Minaj has said of her marriage.

“Even if you’re not married, 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.”

Although Petty pleaded not guilty, he was convicted of attempted rape in 1995. He has also served a seven-year sentence for a 2006 manslaughter conviction, stemming from a 2002 shooting.

Unlike the years before, Minaj has for the first time topped the US charts, not once, but twice this year. The first was in May with her remix to Doja Cat’s single Say So, and then in June with Trollz, her track with 6ix9ine. Minajs most recent album was Queen in 2018.
