This morning, July 20, Nicki Minaj announced her pregnancy. While many are up in arms over who she’s expecting with (her husband Kenneth Petty is a sex offender), the world is still wishing the rap superstar a safe pregnancy, at the very least, especially during the uncertainty of the current coronavirus pandemic.
“#Preggers,” she captioned the initial announcement pic, before going on to explain the nostalgic photoshoot. “I’m in love. Classic Nicki meets the now. #BABYMINAJ 💜” In another flick, she told fans how excited she is. “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. 💛”
Nicki Minaj has always wanted a family and it looks like one of her biggest dreams are about to come true. To show her some love on this day, we’ve gathered some photos of Nicki over the years, growing into the woman she was always meant to be.
