Nicki Minaj has finally shared her little boy’s face with the world!
And while Minaj shared a quick snapshot of her baby’s foot back in October after she gave birth on Sept. 30, she recently posted six sweet photos of her now 3-month-old son on her Instagram on Jan. 2.
In the photo series, Minaj’s little boy sported designer outfits, including one particular outfit with a chain and a diamond nameplate that says, “Papa Bear.”
“#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama,” Minaj captioned the photos shared on Instagram. “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,” she added. “Sending love to all the superhero mothers out there. Big hugs to all the women who have been pregnant during this challenging time.”
And while Minaj has yet to reveal the name of her son, she revealed in an interview how his name was almost “Ninja,” but decided to change it at the last minute.
Minaj is also currently prepping for the release of her HBO Max docuseries which follows her personal life, including her pregnancy journey.
On Wednesday, the new mom posted to Twitter revealing she was “butt naked” when she went into labor.
“Just got out the shower,” Minaj, 38, explained, adding how she had just asked husband Kenneth Petty to rub her back. “As soon as I started scooting over to him in the bed I just felt the water start coming out.”
And while she was level headed at the moment, she revealed Petty was “pretty scared.” She then revealed to another fan how she was in labor all night but they let her sleep until it was time to push.
“The epidural didn’t hurt either,” she continued. “They numbed me up real good. So I took my a** right to sleep.”
Minaj also revealed her experience with breastfeeding, saying her son had no problem and he “latched on in the hospital.”
“But breastfeeding is very painful,” she wrote. “Pumping is too. Women make this stuff look way too easy. Moms r really superheroes.”
