After months of rumours, Nicki Minaj has finally confirmed that she is pregnant.

The Trinidadian-American rapper shared an Instagram photo showing her stomach on Monday (July 20) with the caption '#Preggers' following months of speculation as to whether she was expecting. 

Her mother, Carol Maraj, confirmed the good news via an Instagram post: 'One of God's greatest words can express the joy I feel in my heart.'


One of God’s greatest gifts... #motherhood ... no words can express the joy that I feel in my heart 💜 💜💜

Minaj made a splash after attending carnival in Trinidad and Tobago earlier this year with husband Kenneth Petty.

Petty created a stir after he was captured on video allegedly elbowing soca star Iwer George while he was performing with them on a music truck.

Minaj also produced a Carnival video for 'Pound the Alarm' in Trinidad in 2012. 

Minaj said she and Petty were once childhood sweethearts when she lived in Queens, New York as a child. 

Minaj and Petty were married in October 2019.
