"He's So Handsome"

Nicki Minaj is a doting mom! The celebrity recently shared adorable clips of her precious baby boy, who is nicknamed “Papa Bear”.


One clip showed Nicki sitting with her son as he attempted to talk. Nicki encouraged her baby boy to make sounds that will eventually turn into words. The celebrity mom also shared a video clip of her son trying to walk. “He’s about to start running soon,” one social media fan said in response to seeing footage of Nicki’s son standing and trying to take steps. “He’s so handsome,” another social media fan wrote.

Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, welcomed their son last September. The celebrity mom shared a bit of her labor and delivery story during a Q&A session in December.

Nicki was at home with her husband when her birthing experience began. “As soon as I started scooting over to him in the bed I just felt the water start coming out,” Minaj shared. “I was weirdly calm and I quietly said ‘OMG. I’m about to be in labor.'”

Nicki Minaj was in labor “all night” but, nevertheless, was able to have a vaginal delivery with an epidural. “I pushed for 2 1/2 hours,” Minaj told her social media fans. “Only because [the] first the epidural didn’t wear off enough for me to feel myself pushing,” the celebrity mom explained. “Once I was able to feel the pain I pushed him on out,” Nicki told her supporters. The ‘Super Bass’ rapper has been a doting mom ever since.

“Thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama,” Nicki Minaj wrote to her son at the beginning of this year. “Wishing you guys a happy and prosperous New Year,” the celebrity mom told her fans. “Thank you for your love and support throughout this journey,” the rapper further doted on her supporters.

“It’s meant so much to me,” Nicki added. “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 Minaj has kept the name of her son private. She, however, does not shy away from affectionately calling him “Papa Bear.”
