She wrote: “Thank you to Queen B, Kim & Ye, Riccardo Tisci, Winnie, Karol & everyone who sent well wishes during this time. It meant the world to me.”

“I am so grateful & in love with my son. Madly in love. My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿงธ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽˆ,” she added.

Announcing her pregnancy in July, Nicki shared a series of photos to Instagram cradling her baby bump.
