Nicki Minaj has finally confirmed her child’s gender – revealing she has welcomed a baby boy.
The Super Bass rapper, 37, took to her Instagram account on Thursday evening to thank her famous friends for the presents and cards they’ve sent her in the two weeks since she’s given birth, and revealed she’d had a son with her husband Kenneth Petty in the post.
She said she was “madly in love” with her son, who she called her “favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world”.
In her post she didn’t reveal her son’s name or share any pictures of him.
Pictures of cards from Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, model Winnie Harlow and singer Karol G all featured in her post.
Nikki captioned the post: “Thank you to Queen B, Kim & Ye, Riccardo Tisci, Winnie, Karol & everyone who sent well wishes during this time.
“It meant the world to me.
“I am so grateful & in love with my son. Madly in love.
“My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world.”
Her famous friends had sent her a string of sweet messages to congratulate her.
Beyonce wrote: “Onika, welcome to motherhood. God bless you and your family. B.”
Kim and Kanye said: “Congrats! We love you! Kim + Kanye.”
It’s reported that Nicki gave birth to her son September 30.
She had revealed her pregnancy in August when she shared a selection of extravagant photographs of her blossoming baby bump.
“Preggers,” she captioned the post.
Another caption read: “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”
The singer welcomed the tot with her husband Kenneth – who she wed last year.
The rapper and her beau, who has been convicted of manslaughter and registered as a sex offender, tied the knot less than a year after their romance began.
Nicki has long referred to Kenneth as her “husband”, but she announced in October 2019 that it was finally official by telling the world she’s changed her name.
