Nicki Minaj just revealed the sex of her first child!

The rapper broke the news on Instagram on Thursday (October 15), revealing that she and husband Kenneth Petty welcomed a son. "I am so grateful & in love with my son. Madly in love," the “Chun-Li” musician wrote. "My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world."

While Minaj has yet to share any photos of her baby boy, the Grammy-nominated lyricist has been showered with well wishes from her celebrity friends like Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

“Thank you to Queen B, Kim & Ye, Riccardo Tisci, Winner [Harlow], [Karol G] & everyone who sent well wishes during this time. It meant the world to me,” the “Starships” artist captioned a series of photos showing all the cards she received to celebrate her becoming a new mom.

“Welcome to motherhood. God bless you and your family,” reads the “Drunk In Love” superstar’s message to Minaj, as Kimye simply wrote, “Congrats! We love you!”

As previously reported, the couple, who tied the knot in October 2019, welcomed the birth of their little man on September 30. The gender reveal comes just months after the 37-year-old announced she and her hubby were expecting their first child together back in July.

Minaj’s mother, Carol, was the first to confirm her grandson’s arrival on Instagram. "Thank you Lord for Blessing my daughter @nickiminaj with a beautiful bundle of joy!" she shared on October 2. "You have always been a Blessing to myself and your family, and now you have received one of the best Blessings from God."

Congratulations on your baby boy, Nicki and Kenneth!
