The “Megatron” rapper let the world in on the exciting news that she’s pregnant with her first child by sharing a few maternity photos showing her growing baby bump.

In another photo, Minaj and her baby bump go full camp with an ornate two-piece outfit and knee-high stockings. We can already tell baby Minaj is going to be absolutely fabulous!

In a third photo, Nicki Minaj sits casually on a pink couch. “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage,” she writes. “Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”

The 37-year-old, who married her teenage sweetheart, Kenneth Petty, in 2019, has been vocal about wanting to start a family for quite some time. Back in 2014, Minaj told Vogue Italia that her life plan included taking time off to make room for motherhood.

“I have given myself a time limit to take my professional satisfaction,” she said at the time. “I do not want to work all my life and never experience the joys of a family. It is not time yet, but when I decide to get married and become a mother I would like to take a break and devote myself completely to my child.”

The world better get ready for baby Minaj!
