American talented female rapper, Nicki Minaj has taken to her social media space to announced her pregnancy herself, as she accompanied the claim with new baby bump photos.
This is the rapper’s first pregnancy as she await her child birth.

In 2019, Nicki shocked many fans when she announced on a now deleted tweet of her retirement from music to start a new family.
But, she has appeared on rapper 6ix9ine’s ‘Trollz’ single and even tops Billboard Hot 100 with a remix of Doja Cat’s ‘Say So.’
In May, 2020 Nicki fuelled rumours of her pregnancy when she replied a fan. The comment was; we need your baby photo, but she replied.. “the world is not ready yet.”
Last year, the rapper married Kenneth Petty, a 42-year-old, in an interview she said my “end goal” of this relationship is to get pregnant.
It emerged Petty had been convicted of attempted rape in 1995, and later spent seven years in prison for manslaughter, this made their romance to go controversial.
Previously, Minaj has dated rappers Meek Mill and Drake.
