The rapper and her husband, Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, are expecting their first child together, she shared on Instagram Monday alongside a set of glam snapshots of her baring her baby bump. In two of the photos, the mom-to-be is rocking a curly, bright-yellow hairdo, an intricately decorated bikini and sparkly platform stilettos. Another shows her in a ruffled bottom, white knee-high stockings and a blue done-up hairstyle, complete with a bright-green bow.
While the future of Minaj's music career appears to be up in the air aside from her most recent single "Yikes," the Queens, New York, native had hinted at a new album — as well as changes in her personal life — over the past months. In June 2019, Minaj said on "Queen Radio" that she and Petty had acquired a marriage license. "We did get our marriage license," the "Super Bass" rapper said during her show on Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio. "I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I'm there, I don't want to compromise that for anyone or anything." Then in July of that year, Minaj (birth name: Onika Maraj) appeared to confirm she was engaged — and expecting — in her Chance the Rapper collaboration "Zanies and Fools." As she rapped on the track, "He the Clyde to my Bonnie, 'bout to walk down the aisle and be a mommy" and "I met my husband when I was 17 out in Queens."

Baby Dreams! Nicki Minaj Is 'Preggers,' Expecting First Child with Husband Kenneth Petty
"#Preggers 💛," she captioned the first image of her cradling her belly, writing to accompany the third (which showed Minaj lounging on a pink couch), "Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. 💛" The happy news comes nine months after she and Petty tied the knot and 10 months after Minaj, 37, announced her intention to retire to instead focus on her family. "I've decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me … Love you for LIFE," she wrote on Twitter.
