Nicki Minaj took to her Instagram earlier today to share a new photo of her son, who is nicknamed “Papa Bear”.
In the snap, the rapper is dressed in head head-to-toe Fendi as her baby boy sits on her lap. Papa Bear is wearing a Burberry playsuit and hat set as he looks away from the camera.
Minaj recently shared a sweet video to Instagram of her 8-month-old baby boy attempting to take his first steps.
“You trying to do all of that today?” Minaj said as she captured her husband, Kenneth Petty holding the pair’s son.
“You’re not trying to do all of that today?” she added. “Am I bothering you? You had it?”
The “Super Bass” singer is loving motherhood and recently shared her experience on her pesonal website.
She wrote, “I’ve also been completely overwhelmed with joy and fulfillment in the world of Papa Bear. Each day creates a new and fascinating, magical memory that I hide far away into a little cute compartment of my heart; vowing never to forget any of it.”
“He’s just a cute liddo marshmallow,” Nicki continued. “I can’t take it,” the celebrity mom gushed. “His favorite movie is Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. [He] won’t stop watching it,” Minaj mused. “He’s so smart, funny, sweet, competitive… it’s kind of crazy how they have a full personality so early on. Yesterday I made him say ‘Mama.’ Even got it on video. Just… Wow.”
Nicki Minaj and husband Kenneth Petty welcomed their son last September. In January of this year, Nicki shared a beautiful New Year’s message that featured the first photo of her son.
“#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama,” Nicki wrote under a series of pictures. “Wishing you guys a happy and prosperous New Year,” Minaj told her fans. “Thank you for your love and support throughout this journey,” the rapper continued. “It’s meant so much to me. 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.”
