Nicki Minaj Shares Rare Videos with Her Son on Instagram (and She Even Captures Him Saying a Word)

Nicki Minaj appears to be loving her life as a new mom.

The 38-year-old singer gave birth to her son last September and as it nears the infant's first birthday, Minaj has turned to Instagram to share some rare videos of him. The child, who she refers to as Papa Bear, is seen sitting in his mom's lap and Minaj even captured a moment of him saying “hi.”

In the caption of one video, she wrote, “Omgggggg!!!!!! He is GORGEOUS!!!!” At the beginning of the clip, Minaj says to her son, “Papa, say: ‘Me and momma love dada.’” She then goes, “Papa, what you doing? Say hi.” To the singer's surprise, the infant repeats the word right after her.

Fellow celebs couldn't get enough of the cute moment, like Tamar Braxton, who said, “What a perfect baby.” TV personality Phaedra Parks called it “Adorable” and Jennifer Williams wrote, “The cutest.”

But that wasn't all. The singer also shared a slideshow featuring two other videos and another shot of Papa Bear. In the first clip, Minaj tells her son to say “I'm a cute boy” while he's sitting with her and looking around. Then, in the second video, he's seen walking toward the camera and Minaj added some emojis of hearts and flowers. Finally, in the last slide, Minaj shared a shot of her son with a snapchat filter for an animal shelter and a dog is seen on the screen next to the infant.

The “Super Bass” singer did not share the first full photos of her son until back in January, but since then, she's treated fans to a few rare snaps, such as when she and her son were seen matching in white sweatsuits, or when she showed her baby trying to learn how to walk.

Please keep the pics coming, Nicki.
