Nicki Minaj is a famous
singer who always wanted to be a mother. And her wishes came true with the
birth of her first child with husband, Kenneth Petty. The news of her pregnancy
also had come as a shock to her fans but in the end, they were all delighted.
The desire to have
children has been there for Nicki Minaj for the last ten years. In 2021, when
the Super Bass singer was asked about her future plans, she had mentioned that
she wanted to be married with kids in the next ten years. She famously
predicted that by 2022 she’d have two children and she’ll be happily married.
And with the birth of her first child, it looks like she’s on her way to
fulfilling her dreams.
really need a boy in my life. A baby boy. Because… I’m so attached to my little
brother and I felt like that was my real son. And boys, they’re just so, I don’t
know… My heart just melts when I see them.”
– She said in one of her interviews.
In the past, when she
was asked what kind of parent she’d be, she had said that she’d be someone who
balances her parent life with her career. But she also said that she would make
her life all about the baby as she doesn’t want them to feel neglected. Hence,
she has said that there might be a time when she’d take a break but there was
In fact, there was a
time when she said that she’d be really disappointed if she didn’t have a baby
by her side before the release of her fifth album.
feel like I was put here to be a mother. I have definitely put off the wife
thing because I don’t want people in my business. I’d rather not do anything
that’s going to be on paper but I definitely will be married before I have my
baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order. I’ve always felt like that
since I was young; my mother always put that in my head.”
By the time her fifth
album releases, she jokingly said that she wanted to have walked down the aisle
and have one baby by her side… and possibly $500 million in the bank account.
Since her fourth and
last album was released in 2018, it looks like she’s going according to her
years from now, I will have two children, unless my husband wants three. I will
be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting, and I’ll be a
housewife with careers that I can run from home.”
We can tell that she
loved to be a mother because she could never stop talking about it. In one of
her interviews, she had mentioned that she wanted to cook for her children,
take them to school, and simply enjoy their presence and watch them grow older.
She also mentioned that
she wants to attend parent-teacher conferences and help her children with their
homework. This shows how hands-on she really aims to be.
If you thought that she
had a baby out of nowhere, then you’re wrong. She was actually actively
planning to have one in 2018 when she teased her fans that she won’t put it off
for too long.
She said: “I’ve got to get married first then I’ll
have a child. I might be closer than people think actually. I love the children.”
And in last September
she said that she’d be willing to leave her career behind if that meant that
she’d have a happy married life with children.
Of course, she
backtracked that statement because it sounded a bit regressive. But she did get
married to Petty the month after that.
And the minute she got
married, she was on her mission.
practice all the time, like, three times a night. At first, I was like, ‘I want
it now, I want it now!’ And then I started thinking, ‘Do I want it right right
now, or do I want to wait another year?’ Because I have a couple of things that
I have to do [first].” – She said in one of the

few months later, she was seen in one of the videos, rubbing her belly, and
telling her parents the big news.

She continued to tease
her fans about the pregnancy but it seems like she does not really like it as
Of course, that’s an
exaggeration but she has realized what motherhood actually is like. It’s hard,
overwhelming and a huge responsibility. In one of the tweets, she mentioned that
breastfeeding is really hard. She praised mothers in general and called them
He had no problem breastfeeding. He latched on in the hospital which was very surprising to me. I was afraid maybe he wouldn’t. But breast feeding is very painful. Pumping is too. Women make this stuff look way too easy. Moms r really superheroes https://t.co/SdF9CXMdF3

As a matter of fact,
her birthing story sounds scary – even though she finds it amusing.
Yes. I was butt naked. Just got out the shower & I asked him to rub my back. As soon as I started scooting over to him in the bed I just felt the water start coming out. I was weirdly calm & I quietly said “omg, I’m about to be in labor” He was very scared & I was laughing @ him. https://t.co/2FGBnQOp3T
