She also spoke about her future plans and told Billboard in an interview, “I love music and interacting with fans, so I can’t really see taking myself completely away, but I want to be open to other possibilities in my life. I do believe it is important to become a woman outside of the magnifying glass,” reported E!Online.
Earlier, according to a report in TMZ, Kenneth who is a registered sex offender, petitioned for a judge to change his conditions so that he can attend the birth of their child if it happens outside of his curfew hours.
Nicki Minaj, in July, shared a series of bikini-clad photos cradling her baby bump and captioned one of her posts, “#Preggers.” Minaj also thanked her fans, writing, “love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude”
However, it is still unknown whether the child is a baby girl or boy, nor, the news has been officially shared by the couple.
