Nicki Minaj is expecting her first child. The rapper, 37, shared the exciting news on July 20 by posting a photo of herself cradling her baby bump on Instagram. The caption simply read, "#Preggers." In true fashion, Nicki is wearing a bright yellow wig, colorful eye makeup, a whimsical bikini, and lots of accessories in the playful shot.
