Nicki Minaj goes makeup-free with vibrant yellow hair to snuggle her eight-month-old son


Nicki Minaj gave her 137 million Instagram followers a glimpse of her eight-month-old son she affectionately calls ‘Papa Bear’, in a new post this week.

The 38-year-old Trinadadian-born rapper posed with her chubby cheeked little one while celebrating the success of the re-release of her 2009 breakout mixtape, Beam Me Up Scotty, which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200. 

Minaj, who is mourning the tragic hit-and-run loss of her father, recently revealed that taking a break from music has given her the time she needed to get a handle of her mental health while becoming a first time mom.

The makeup-free momma is currently rocking vibrant crayon-yellow hair and she filmed herself using an Instagram filter with her son.

Nicki sweetly snuggled close to the baby while filming while he was distracted by something below the camera.

The hip hop icon has been very protective over the baby since giving birth at the end of September. Only on occasion does the hitmaker share photos of her adorable boy and has yet to reveal his name, opting to refer to him by a nickname on social media.

The Pink Print rapper welcomed her first child in 2020 with her husband Kenneth Petty. On Thursday, Minaj shared a snap with her husband to her Instagram grid, along with a collection of sizzling solo images.

While chatting with fans earlier this month, the star admitted she’s in a much better frame of mind since giving birth to her son and being able to bond with her little one.

During a Twitter Q&A, Nicki was asked if she’s benefited from the hiatus as her last album, Queen. 

‘Great question. Yes. It was soooo needed for me. I appreciate u guys so much for waiting,’ she said.

‘But yea, very much needed that zen for important bonding time w|my son, getting back fluid w|writing & smthn else I don’t want to discuss yet. If u know u know.’ 

Minaj also noted there her son ‘hated rap music when he was in my tummy’ and played Enya while she was pregnant.

‘He’d kick rlly hard. But he was bopping a lil bit to #SeeingGreen b4 I released it,’ she said. ‘While pregnant I could only play him soothing music like Enya/classical, etc. he’d be more relaxed. It’s why i couldn’t rlly complete my album preggers.’

Nicki recently confessed that losing her father has been ‘the most devastating loss’ she’s faced in her life. 

Robert Maraj died in February after being struck by a car in a hit-and-run incident, and earlier this month, Nicki broke her silence on the tragedy.

The Starships hitmaker still isn’t ready to talk about the incident in detail, but she offered fans an update on her mental health in a post on her website.

Nicki, who’s full name is Onika Tanya Maraj, wrote: ‘Tho I can’t really bring myself to discuss the passing of my father as yet; I can say it has been the most devastating loss of my life. I find myself wanting to call him all the time. More so now that he’s gone. Life is funny that way. May his soul rest in paradise. He was very loved & will be very missed.’

She honored her father on what would have been his birthday on Sunday, May 16, with a photo captioned: ‘Happy Birthday Daddy. Miss u so much. So much. So so much. Rest In Peace. Oh my God.’
