Nicki Minaj Shares First Pic of Her Newborn & It Already Has Over 4 Million Likes on Instagram

Nicki Minaj just gave fans the first peek at her baby boy since giving birth—and we're already ready for more.

The 37-year-old rapper posted a never-before-seen pic of her newborn on Wednesday, which marked her and her husband Kenneth Petty's one-year wedding anniversary. In the caption, she wrote, "Happy Anniversary, my love [heart emoji]."

In the photo, we see the baby's tiny foot being held by what appears to be Petty's hand. And not surprisingly, the snap has already received more than four million likes. Fellow celebrities were quick to share their excitement in the comments. Serena Williams wrote, "Congratssass," adding a string of heart-eye emojis. Meanwhile, stars like Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Eva Marcille and Normani commented with encouraging heart and flower emojis.

The viral post comes almost a week after Minaj revealed the gender of her baby and shared a special thank you message to her friends. She wrote, "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. I am so grateful & in love with my son. Madly in love. My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world."

Minaj first announced her pregnancy in July by sharing a series of glamorous pics that featured her baby bump on Instagram. She captioned one of the photos, "Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes."

The pregnancy news came nine months after she and Petty tied the knot in October of 2019. At the time, she revealed the news with a simple Instagram video that included "Bride" and "Groom" baseball caps and "Mr. and Mrs." mugs.

Congrats to the couple on their one-year anniversary!
