Nicki Minaj has confirmed she became a mother to a bouncing baby boy last month and admits she is “madly in love” with the new arrival.
The 37-year-old rapper thanked her celebrity friends for sending their well-wishes and shared snaps of messages from famous faces including Beyonce, Kim Kardashian West and fashion designer Riccardo Tisci.
Minaj, who married partner Kenneth Petty in 2019, wrote on Instagram:
“Thank you to Queen B, Kim & Ye, Riccardo Tisci, Winnie, Karol & everyone who sent well wishes during this time.
“It meant the world to me. I am so grateful & in love with my son.
Madly in love.
My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world.”
The handwritten note from mother-of-three Beyonce read: “Onika, Welcome to motherhood. God bless you and your family. B.”
The message from Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye, who has four children, read: “Congrats! We love you! Kim + Kanye.”
Chart-topping rapper Minaj, whose hits include Super Bass and Anaconda, announced she was pregnant in July.
Alongside a picture of her cradling her bump while wearing a floral bikini and high heels, Minaj wrote on Instagram: “#Preggers.”
