She is about to baby. This Monday, July 20, Nicki Minaj seized her Instagram account to formalize her first pregnancy. And true to her extravagant personality, it is with an explosive mixture of colors that she wished to announce it. In this post, the 37-year-old rapper strikes a kneeling, smiling pose, her curly yellow hair, dressed in an ensemble decorated with colorful flowers. Outfit revealing its baby bump, already very rounded, to its 118 million subscribers. “#EnCloque”, she is content to write in the caption. News that quickly unleashed passions to believe the thread of comments. “Congratulations”, “so happy for you”, can we read.
Other fans were content to share their joy with a series of emoticons, sometimes in the effigy of flames, sometimes in the shape of red hearts. A colorful announcement that comes eight months after her wedding. Indeed, in October 2019, Nicki Minaj said “yes” for life to his companion, Kenneth Petty. The lovebirds had united in complete secrecy after obtaining their license two months earlier. A discreet couple, they have been inseparable since 2018. A relationship that had also made people talk about the fans of the interpreter of Starships, because of the criminal past of his beloved. Critics whom she obviously preferred to ignore.
A new life for Nicki Minaj
His family is now his priority. A month before her wedding, Nicki Minaj relayed a sad announcement to her fans on her Twitter account: at 36, she believed that the time for retirement had come. She was ending her career in order to devote more time to her personal life. “I decided to retire to devote myself to my family,” she wrote. The end of a prestigious journey that began in the early 2010s and during which Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty of her real name (and since her marriage to Kenneth Petty) had climbed to the top of the charts on several occasions.
