Nicki Minaj has taken to social media to share the first photo of her newborn son! The rapper did this while wishing her husband Kenneth Beatty a happy memory! The couple tied the knot a year ago today in a secret ceremony.
Nicki Minaj celebrated her first marriage with Kenneth Petty by sharing the first photo of her newborn son on October 21! Rapper Megatron, 37, posted a photo showing her husband holding their son’s little foot. Nikki and Kenneth have yet to reveal the name of their first child.
“Happy Birthday, my love,” Nikki commented on her new Instagram post. She married her high school sweetheart in a surprise party. At the time, Nikki revealed the good news in an Instagram video that showed the “Mr.” couple. The “Mrs.” cups, along with white baseball caps with “Bride” and “Groom” written in gold letters. “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10 • 21 • 19” Nikki commented on the post using her real name.
Nikki, who kept her pregnancy, revealed the gender of her baby, in a post on Instagram. While thanking her celebrity friends for their gifts and good wishes – including Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West – Nikki wrote, “I’m so grateful and in love with my son. I’m madly in love. My favorite Lido boy around the world.”
Nikki’s pic of her new baby comes after her fans have been anxiously waiting for the bundle of joy to arrive. The “Superbass” singer first announced that she was expecting a baby on Instagram which included an adorable photo of her wearing a multi-colored bikini cuddling her baby bump. She wrote “#Preggers” with the yellow heart-shaped emoji in the caption.
The new mom also participated in a beautiful photo shoot by famous photographer David LaChapelle and the photos were released around the same time her pregnancy was announced. She looked like a goddess standing in a forest in the pictures and proudly showed off her naked baby bump while wearing a long light blue dress and a stunning veil.
Nikki did not initially mention the father of her child when she first released her ad, but everyone already knows that she is married to Kenneth. The couple first announced their romantic relationship in December 2018, when Nicki shared a PDA-filled photo from her celebration of her 36th birthday. Soon after, it turns out that the two lovebirds had a history together perfectly, including a romantic relationship when they were only teenagers. They rekindled their love when Nikki returned to her hometown of Queens, New York during Thanksgiving in 2018.
