Just last year, rapper Nicki Minaj announced her marriage to childhood friend Kenneth Petty and decided to retire from the music industry to build a family.
The seed of that resolution has (almost) bore fruit as the rapper/singer announced on her Instagram account that she was due to become a mother.
Simply captioned "#Preggers" Minaj, real name Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, shared a photo of her wearing a bejeweled bra, cradling her baby bump.
What followed as the day progressed was a string of artistic photos presumably from a maternity shoot.
The 37-year old was showered with congratulations and well-wishes from fans across all her social media platforms and the love was reciprocated by Minaj, who thanked fans for their support and mentioned that a new album was in the works.
