To start the new year, Nicki Minaj has shared the first photos of her son with Kenneth Petty, three months after his birth. The rapper took to Instagram to share a slideshow consisting of photos of her son who she has nicknamed, “Papa Bear.”

“#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama,” she said. “Wishing you guys a happy & prosperous New Year. Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me.”

She continued, “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.” Nicki captioned the beautiful post.

News of Nicki’s pregnancy first broke out in July 2020, when she shared photos of her baby bump with the caption “#Preggers”, against long time speculations by fans.

On Wednesday, Sept. 30, she delivered a baby boy in Los Angeles.
