Nicki Minaj Gives Fans An Update About Her Album
Nicki went public with her relationship with 40-year-old Kenneth 'Zoo' Petty back in December, revealing to fans they'd rekindled their childhood romance and couldn't be happier.
Kenneth has a sizeable criminal past, as a registered sex offender from when he was convicted of rape in 1995 and a convicted murderer, having spent seven years behind bars for manslaughter in 2002.
Nicki and Kenneth have known each other forever it seems, with Nicki opening up to fans on twitter about their teenage years, even admitting him and her best friend 'TT' hated each other when they were younger.
She wrote: "Facts but we were like this about each other since we were very young kids in the hood. He was on my body b4 the big ol’ booty. B4 the fame & fortune. Fought my bf cuz I wouldn’t be his girl. He was always a lil brazy. But anyway, timing is everything [sic]."
Nicki confirmed that she's pregnant with her first baby, by showing off her glowing baby bump on Instagram!
In the past, she hasn't been shy about letting people know she's planning on being with Kenneth forevermore, letting fans know previously on Twitter they've already picked out baby names.
The 'Anaconda' star is yet to reveal when her due date is or how far along she is but fans are definitely set to keep their eyes peeled for more pregnancy info!
