Internationally acclaimed US rapper Onika Tanya Maraj popularly known as Nicki Minaj has disrupted the flow on the internet as she reveals that she’s pregnant with her first child.
The 37-year-old rapper shared a stunning image to Instagram where she cradled her baby bump as she wore a string bikini and platform high heels.
The Megatron singer kept it simple with her caption, ‘#Preggers’, and adding a heart emoji. In May, Nicki Minaj had fueled rumour that she was pregnant when she shared another topless snap to promote a video.
Following that, she also tweeted ‘the world ain’t ready yet’ when asked for a snap of her baby bump by a curious fan.
In another exchange, a Nicki ‘barb’ (the term coined for her loyal fans) asked the Super Bass singer, ‘Are you also throwing up in the morning and having to go to the bathroom a lot?
‘Nicki responded, ‘Lmao. No throwing up. But nausea and peeing non stop. Omg, what do you think this means guys???? Lmaooooooooooo.’
Recall that in June Nicki talked about her marriage to her husband, 42-year-old Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty, whom she tied the knot with in 2019.
“I didn’t think it would be as refreshing and calming as it is,’ admitted the rapper during her appearance on Young Money Radio with Lil Wayne.“
“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.’
Nicki told host and fellow rapper Lil Wayne that life at home with Petty has been ‘good, good, good.”
Nicki and Kenneth who began dating in the latter end of 2018 tied the knot in October of last year.
Though they only dated a little over the year before pronouncing themselves husband and wife, Nicki confirmed via her verse in Chance The Rapper’s track Zanies and Fools that she has known Kenneth for years.
In the song, Minaj raps: “I met my husband when I was 17 out in Queens/ If you love it, let it go, now I know what that means.’
Since saying ‘I do,’ fans and the hip hop world have speculated as to when Nicki might entertain growing her family”.
