Nicki Minaj has welcomed her first child with husband, Kenneth Petty. The singer gave birth to their baby on Wednesday, September 30 in Los Angeles.
As of now, the baby's name has not been revealed. The news of the birth comes after Minaj announced in July that she was pregnant with a series of photos shared to Instagram;
"Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. 💛"
The 'Anaconda' singer and Petty got their marriage license in June 2019, before announcing that they were married in October 2019 with an Instagram video showing Mr and Mrs mugs and baseball caps with "Bride" and ″Groom" written across the front.
She has long stated she wished to become a mom, and in September 2019 told fans she would be retiring from the industry to start a family. Nicki later released more music but married Kenneth, in a sure sign she would be settling down and expanding her family.
She posted on twitter;
"I've decided to retire and have my family,I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it till da death of me, in the box - cuz ain't nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE."
