Star Rapper Nicki Minaj just got promoted from wife to mom! The 37-year-old gave birth to her first child on 30th September 2020 in Los Angeles. The name and sex of the baby are still unknown. Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, are thrilled to welcome this bundle of joy into their lives. Further, the couple will soon be celebrating their first wedding anniversary on 21st October 2020.
Nicki’s big announcement
In July, Nicki Minaj posted a series of photos on Instagram, revealing her baby bump. She wore some of the most authentic outfits as she posed for the pictures. Minaj rocked a curly, bright-yellow hairdo, an intricately designed bikini, and sparkly stilettos. In another post, she wore a ruffled bottom, white high-knee stockings with blue hair, and a green bow. She captioned one of her pictures as,
Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.
Kenneth Petty’s Pre-trial
Petty registered as a sex offender in California. As per the court documents, a judge permitted him to modify his pre-trial release conditions. This permission allowed him to travel with his wife and also be present during the time of her delivery, provided it took place within his curfew hours. His label stems from a 1995 rape conviction of a 16-year-old. He was further sentenced to 18 to 54 months in jail. Minaj has always taken a stand for him, claiming that he was only 15 back then, and his past cannot ruin her life. She told off many fans of Instagram, too, who spoke against Petty.
