The rapper later shared another image of herself showing off her bump, while wearing a blue wig with another bedazzled bikini, knee-length stockings and silver heels.

“chubble!!! go mommy ????????,” she wrote alongside the image.

Friends and fans flooded the comment section to congratulate the Anaconda hitmaker.

“Congratulations beautiful x,” singer Sam Smith commented.

“???????????????????????? congrats ❤️,” Little Mix star Jesy Nelson penned.

“Omg girl amazing! Congratulations ????????,” one follower added.

The singer is expecting the bundle of joy with her husband Kenneth Petty, who is a convicted sex offender.

The couple tied the knot last year.



Nicki recently fuelled rumours that she was pregnant when she posted a topless snap of herself to promote her new Trollz music video – and fans were convinced that she was concealing a baby bump in the photo.

On the latest episode of Goss Chats, Ali Ryan chats to Ronan Keating about his stat-studded upcoming music special, and working with Robbie Williams on a special new song dedicated to Stephen Gately.

#GossChats is sponsored by top aesthetic clinic Haus of JeJuve, which is now back open for bookings.
