Nicki Minaj finally reveals the gender of her newborn weeks after giving birth to the infant on Sept. 30, 2020.

The “Moment 4 Life” rapper, whose government name is Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, 37, revealed to her 123 million Instagram followers the real gender of her baby after multiple blogs and outlets reported that she had delivered a girl.

Minaj, who is married to childhood sweetheart Kenneth Petty and is now living in Los Angeles, said on Thursday that they had a baby boy.

Moreover, she revealed the handwritten notes sent to her from several A-list celebrity pals, including Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West.

“Thank you to Queen B, Kim & Ye, Riccardo Tisci, Winnie, Karol & everyone who sent well wishes during this time. It meant the world to me,” Minaj penned on Instagram. “I am so grateful & in love with my son. Madly in love… My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world.”

This represents a happy conclusion to a years-long quest for the Pink Barbz. She told her many fans that she would retire from the rap game in order to have a family. Eventually, Minaj returned to the industry and reunited with her childhood friend, Petty.
