1. Nicki Minaj announces pregnancy with beautiful pictures
Nicki Minaj, in a surprise announcement on her Instagram, on Monday revealed that she is pregnant. The singer did not reveal the name of her baby daddy and posted a picture in a bikini, donning yellow hair, cradling her bump.
The singer was all smiles for the camera and captioned the picture saying, “#preggers.” Nicki was said to be dating Kenneth Petty with reports claiming that the couple even got married secretly but Nicki never confirmed the news.
Nicki Minaj also shared a second picture letting her fans know she’s pregnant, this one without a caption.

With her last image, Nicki confirms that she is married as she captions the image “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. ?”
