The pop star took to her Instagram page on Saturday, January 2, 2021, sharing the first photos her son alongside a beautiful and heart-warming message.
“#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama 🎀🦄🙏 Wishing you guys a happy & prosperous New Year. Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me,” she wrote.
This is the first time Nicki Minaj would show photos of her son which she welcomed with her husband, Kenneth Petty back in September last year.
“Becoming a mom is by far the most fulfilling job I’ve ever taken on. Sending love to all the superhero mothers out there. Big hugs to all the women who have been pregnant during this challenging time,” she continued in the highly emotional message.
Nicki Minaj and her husband got married in a private wedding ceremony in October 2019. According to TMZ, the rapper agreed to changer her maiden name from Onika Tanya Maraj to Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty. Although it had been earlier reported she planned to step down from music, she has featured in some songs since then, notably ‘Holy Ground’ by Davido in his most recent album, ‘A Better Time.’
