Nicki Minaj is pregnant!

The rapper and her husband, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, are expecting their first child together, she shared on Instagram Monday alongside a set of glam snapshots of her baring her baby bump.

In two of the photos, the mom-to-be is rocking a curly, bright-yellow hairdo, an intricately decorated bikini and sparkly platform stilettos. Another shows her in a ruffled bottom, white knee-high stockings and a blue done-up hairstyle, complete with a bright-green bow.

“#Preggers 💛,” she captioned the first image of her cradling her belly, writing to accompany the third (which showed Minaj lounging on a pink couch), “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes. 💛”

The happy news comes nine months after she and Petty tied the knot and 10 months after Minaj, 37, announced her intention to retire to instead focus on her family. “I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me … Love you for LIFE,” she wrote on Twitter.
