Nicki Minaj shares first photos of son as 3-month-old wears $600 Fendi onesie, Rolex and chain with nickname 'Papa Bear'
NICKI Minaj shared the first photos of her son as the 3-month-old rocked a $600 Fendi onesie, a Rolex, and a chain with the nickname "Papa Bear."
The rapper kept most of her pregnancy and gave birth on September 30.
Nicki, 38, took to Instagram on Saturday to show off the luxury life her son, Simba, as she shared multiple pictures of him rocking different outfits from brands like Fendi, Gucci, and Versace.
Along with the adorable snaps, she revealed her nickname for him, saying: "#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama.
"Wishing you guys a happy & prosperous New Year. Thank you for your love & support throughout this journey. It’s meant so much to me.
"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."
Her Instagram post came just after she took to Twitter to answer some of her fans' questions about her life as a new mom.
When one person asked if her son was very active while he was still in her belly, she replied: "He used to kick me so hard every night at the same time if I didn’t get up & walk with him.
"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."
The Trollz rapper – who revealed that she found out she was pregnant when she started to crave the smell of bleach – then explained that her husband, Kenneth Petty, was scared while she remained calm.
She said when a second fan asked if her water broke while she was home: "Yes. I was butt naked. Just got out the shower & I asked him to rub my back.
"As soon as I started scooting over to him in the bed I just felt the water start coming out.
"I was weirdly calm & I quietly said 'omg, I’m about to be in labor.' He was very scared & I was laughing @ him."
As for her labor story, Nicki revealed that she "was actually in labor all night but all [the doctors] did was let me sleep until I dilated far enough to push.
"The epidural didn’t hurt either. They numbed me up real good. So I took my a** right to sleep."
She also added in another tweet that she gave birth naturally: "I pushed for 2 1/2 hours. Only b/c first the epidural didn’t wear off enough for me to feel myself pushing.
"Once I was able to feel the pain I pushed him on out."
She then finally ended her Q&A by talking a little about her experience breastfeeding her son, saying: "He had no problem breastfeeding.
"He latched on in the hospital which was very surprising to me. I was afraid maybe he wouldn’t.
"But breastfeeding is very painful. Pumping is too. Women make this stuff look way too easy. Moms r really superheroes."
Back in October, The Sun confirmed that Nicki had given birth to her first child with husband Kenneth.
The Bang Bang, who got married last year, announced she was pregnant in July with a glam shot of herself cradling her bump on social media.
She posed kneeling on a pink bed in high heels, a pink bikini bottom and a decorated bikini top, a big smile and her arms caressing her baby bump.
She captioned the photo: “#Preggers."
Nicki shared a couple of other photos from the pregnancy photoshoot, all of them featuring the mother-to-be dressed in bright and sparkling attire, with her growing belly on display.
Alongside one of the pictures, she wrote: “Love. Marriage. Baby carriage.
“Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”
The Trollz rapper married her husband Kenneth, a convicted sex offender, in 2019 after less than a year of dating.
Kenneth is a music industry professional who was arrested on March 4 by U.S. Marshals on an indictment for failing to register as a sex offender.
According to US reports, Petty has served time for both manslaughter and for the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl.
Kenneth also spent seven years behind bars after he was found guilty of manslaughter in 2006.
Nicki and Kenneth were childhood friends, and they reunited in 2018 before they wed in late 2019.
She has long stated she wished to become a mom, and in September 2019 told fans she would be retiring from the industry to start a family.
Nicki later released more music but married Kenneth, in a sure sign she would be settling down and expanding her family.
