Earlier this month, Minaj revealed on Twitter that she had not yet hired a nanny to help care for her son, calling the childcare choice a "difficult decision" to make.
"Everyone tells me that," Minaj wrote to one fan who questioned why she couldn't hire a nanny like a "normal celebrity" because they miss her in the spotlight. "Lol. I rlly should get one. Difficult decision tho."
In October, Minaj offered the first glimpse of her baby boy on Instagram, sharing a photo of his tiny foot while marking her one-year wedding anniversary with Petty. "Happy Anniversary, my love ♥️," she captioned the close-up snapshot.
Minaj revealed the news that she and Petty had tied the knot on October 21, 2019, with a video on Instagram at the time, showing matching "Mr. and Mrs." mugs and black-and-white baseball caps with "Bride" and "Groom" written across the front.
The artist then announced that she was expecting her first child with Petty in July, alongside a series of glam snapshots featuring the singer baring her baby bump on Instagram.
