Nicki Minaj announces she’s pregnant with her first child


Nicki Minaj left no room for speculation this time: she’s pregnant.

“Preggers,” the rapper captioned an Instagram photo of her baby bump Monday.

The 37-year-old Bronx-raised artist had been teasing for months that she’s expecting, but had never confirmed rumors.

Fans were clued in to the possible news in May when Minaj let slip during a Twitter Q&A that she was experiencing “red meat cravings” and lusting after jalapeños.

Responding to a fan who asked if she was pregnant, she shrugged it off, but joked that she was having “nausea and peeing non stop.”

Minaj married Kenneth Petty in October.

Hours after Minaj’s announcement, Petty shared another photo of the mom-to-be in all white with a circular cutout in her frock that revealed her belly and titled the image “The Virgin Mary.”
