On Thursday, October 15, 2020, singer Nicki Minaj took to social media to confirm the gender of her newborn baby. The star also shared photos of congratulatory cards from other celebrities.
So far, Nicki Minaj, 37, has not revealed her baby’s name or birth date. It’s believed her delivery date was on September 30, 2020, but some others think the date might have been earlier than that.
The only thing we are sure about is that the baby’s father is Kenneth “Zoo” Petty. Two weeks after her perceived delivery date, Minaj shared her baby’s gender via an Instagram post on her account.
