Nicki Minaj welcomes her first child with husband Kenneth Petty

The 37-year-old star is officially a mom. The Queen rapper welcomed her first child with husband Kenneth Petty in Los Angeles. Back in July, the Starships artist nearly broke the internet when she debuted her baby bump in a series of photos on the Gram. She followed up with another message, "Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement and gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes." This marks Nicki and Kenneth's first child together. In fact, exactly one year before welcoming their newborn, the couple tied the knot in October 2019. While the pair obtained a marriage license in July 2019, they didn't officially share their wedding news until three months later. One month before officially announcing the wedding news, Nicki told her followers she was ready to settle down and put her music career on the backburner. "I've decided to retire and have my family," she wrote on Twitter in September 2019. In December 2018, Nicki and Kenneth made their relationship Instagram official after months of sparking romance rumours. Fast forward to now, and the baby makes them three.
