Nicki Minaj kicks off the new year by sharing her “Papa Bear” with the world.
On Saturday, Minaj shared photos and videos of her baby boy on social media, marking the first time she shared his face with followers and fans. The reveal was paired with an adorable note dedicated to all the superhero mothers out there.
“#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama,” adding a pink ribbon, unicorn, and prayer emoji. “Wishing you guys a happy & prosperous New Year. Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me.” Next, the rap star mentions “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.”
Nicki Minaj has kept her pregnancy and son mostly off social media since he was born last fall. Since then, Minaj only shared a few glimpses of him. In one post, the rap star shared a photo of his little foot to celebrate her anniversary with her husband.
During an impromptu fan Q&A on her Twitter earlier this week, Minaj opened up about her pregnancy journey.
“He used to kick me so hard every night at the same time if I didn’t get up & walk with him,” she wrote to one of her fans. “He had a full personality in my tummy & knew how to get his way. It was so intriguing to me. He does the same thing now.”
In another tweet, Minaj took the opportunity to open up about her personal experience with breastfeeding. “He had no problem breastfeeding,”. Minaj continued “He latched on in the hospital which was very surprising to me. I was afraid maybe he wouldn’t. But breast feeding is very painful. Pumping is too. Women make this stuff look way too easy. Moms r really superheroes.”
It’s safe to say that Minaj’s genes completely took over, seeing as Nicki and her baby boy look nearly identical. Big shoutout to the little man who is already drip checking us into 2021 with icy chains and watches.
