Nicki Minaj, Trinidadian-American singer and rapper, has welcomed the arrival of her first child with Kenneth Petty, her husband.
According to TMZ, the 37-year-old rapper gave birth to the baby on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
The new parents are, however, yet to disclose the gender or name of their bundle of joy.
In July, Minaj had announced that she was expecting her first child while sharing a handful of photos showing her in what seemed to be a two-piece sporting a baby bump.
In one of the photos, the ‘Good Form’ rapper can be seen wearing a tiny glitzy bikini and a bright yellow wig — posing on a pink chair and showing off her brightly made-up face.
In September 2019, Minaj had given fans a shocker when she announced she was retiring from music to start a family with Petty — in a decision that elicited mixed reactions from music lovers.
“I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE,” she had written.
In June of the same year, she had told listeners of her Queen Radio show that she and Petty had applied for a marriage license and would tie the knot thereafter.
