Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty are still discovering the joys of new parenthood with their precious baby boy, but they’ve kept the lid on public photos. The Queens rapper graciously shared photos of her son with her legion of fans, and the Barbz are over the moon.
Minaj’s son, lovingly known as Papa Bear, was looking especially fresh with his cute and high-end fashion choices on deck. The baby even has an iced-out Papa Bear chain, which is the only way to be when your mom is one of the top-charting rappers of all time. In a loving message devoted to PB, Minaj also thanked the fans for supporting her motherhood journey and shouted out the moms and moms-to-be.
From Nicki MInaj’s IG:
#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. 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.
While the photos of Papa Bear were dropped on Saturday morning (Jan. 2), yesterday Minaj posted a bare-faced 2021 celebratory clip with audio of her lighting up a microphone with the caption, “Yes but can u rlly rap or…” but it isn’t clear who the target of her shade was.
Comparing that quick video of Minaj and next to her son, as the saying goes, it looks he was spat out. Papa Bear has mom’s eyes for sure. And we absolutely love how happy and healthy he looks.
Congratulations again to the Petty family and a strong salute to their beautiful bundle of joy.
We’ve got the excited reactions from the Barbz below.
