Rapper Nicki Minaj welcomed her first child with her husband Kenneth Petty at the end of September. The news was confirmed by a source, with Nicki not yet revealing any news online about her birth.

Today, Nicki shared a carousel post on Instagram featuring well wishes sent to her by various celebrities and revealed her baby’s gender. It’s a boy!

The new mom appears to be enjoying motherhood! In her caption, she wrote, “I am so grateful & in love with my son. Madly in love. My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world.” The Whole Lotta Choppas singer has yet to reveal the name of her little one.

It’s clear he is very loved! Nicki displayed cards she received from Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Riccardo Tisci, Winnie Harlow, and Karol G.

Nicki announced her pregnancy this past July in a series of photos where she was donned in colorful clothing with her growing baby bump exposed.

The 37-year-old Grammy nominee first started dating her husband Kenneth when they were teenagers. They reconnected in their adult life and went public with their relationship on Instagram in December 2018. In October 2019, after months of marriage rumors, the couple announced they had tied the knot.

We wish Nicki and Kenneth all the best as they settle into their new role as parents.
