Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty had their first child, a son whom she calls “Papa Bear,” in September 2020. In order to answer some of her fans’ inquiries, including “Are you pregnant?” she went on Instagram Live before her Sunday, July 10, headline appearance at the Wireless Festival in London.
Am I expecting?” she responded. Oh, I did mean to tweet this: I’m not fat, y’all, I’m pregnant [laughs]. Oh, wait. Did I say it wrong? I’m sorry. I think I said it wrong. I meant to say I’m not pregnant, I’m fat. But thanks, guys, for all the congratulatory messages.”
Fans of Nicki Minaj believed she might be anticipating her second child, but TMZ has confirmed that she is not pregnant, at least not yet. Her spouse will have plenty of free time since he was just given a one-year home confinement punishment for failing to register as an s*x offender in the state of California.
Petty will also have to serve 3 years of probation and pay a $55,000 fine as part of his sentencing. Nicki shared a couple of adorable family pictures on Instagram not long after Johnny was given his punishment. Their nearly 2-year-old son was pictured leaning on Petty’s shoulder in the pictures. Nicki’s caption had only a few emoticons and not much else.
Nicki’s 10-year plan would be perfectly satisfied by a second child. In a 2012 interview with Complex, she stated, “I’ll absolutely get married and I’ll definitely have my 2 children. I 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.”
