Nicki Minaj Announces She's Expecting Her First Child

Nicki Minaj is going to be a mom!

The superstar and queen of rap dropped a pretty huge bombshell on her Instagram on July 20th, and of course, her fans and friends were all incredibly excited and eager to congratulate her on her growing family.

Of course, the announcement picture was pretty classic Nicki, giant high heels and all.

Nicki Minaj has had a good year so far.

The rapper achieved her first ever number one on the Billboard Hot 100 this year with her feature on 'Say So' with Doja Cat, and quickly followed it up with a second with 'Trollz.'

It looks like neither of those will be Nicki's biggest achievement of the year, though.

Nicki revealed that she's expecting her first child!

Simply captioning this shot of herself cradling her baby bump in a gorgeous swimsuit "#Preggers," Nicki dropped this huge news out of nowhere.

Nicki and her husband, Kenneth Petty, have been together since 2018 and got married in a private ceremony last year.

Obviously, fans and friends alike are extremely excited.

Congratulations, Nicki!
