The rapper previously spoke of a desire to start a family and announced that she would retire last year.
First came passion, then marriage came and then Nicki Minaj would come with a carriage for the boy.
The rapper announced on Monday that she and husband Kenneth Petty are expecting via her official social media accounts.
Minaj shared a video of her displaying what seemed to be a two-piece baby bump wearing.
“Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10-21-19,” the inscription read, apparently sharing her new legal name and the date she made it official with boyfriend Kenneth Petty.
Last month, she talked to People magazine about how she enjoyed family life.
“When you have someone who feels like your soul mate or someone who understands you, it just makes you feel like you’re on top of the world,” Minaj said.
This will be the first child of Minaj.
The singer Super Bass was quickly inundated with messages of support, and actress Holly Berry replied: “YES, congratulations to the beauty !!!!” and singer Sam Smith writes Congratulations to Beautiful X.
Last year, Minaj shocked fans by announcing his retirement and his desire to start a family in an already deleted tweet.
“I decided to retire and have my own family. I know you are happy now, ”she said.
“For my fans, keep repeating me, do it when I die … I love you for LIFE.”
