Nicki Minaj is expecting her first child. The rapper, 37, shared the exciting news on July 20 by posting a photo of herself cradling her baby bump on Instagram. The caption simply read, "#Preggers." In true fashion, Nicki is wearing a bright yellow wig, colourful eye makeup, a whimsical bikini, and lots of accessories in the playful shot.

The news comes nearly a year after Nicki expressed a desire to retire from music and focus on starting a family. Shortly thereafter, on Oct. 21, 2019, Nicki wed Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, and the two dressed in Bride of Chucky costumes for Halloween that year.
