    Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian West, And More Sent Nicki Minaj Congratulatory Cards On Her Newborn Son

    "I am so in love with my son."

    Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, welcomed their first child together on Sept. 30.

    And while she hasn't released a name, the 37-year-old rapper did just confirm the sex of their baby: It's a boy!

    Earlier today, Nicki shared congratulatory notes that she received from some of her celebrity friends and couldn't help but gush about how "madly in love" she is with her son.

    "Thank you to Queen B, Kim & Ye, Riccardo Tisci, Winnie, Karol & everyone who sent well wishes during this time," Nicki wrote on Instagram.

    Nicki first confirmed her pregnancy back in July when she posted a photo shoot with her baby bump on display.

    It seems like just yesterday that Nicki announced, in a since-deleted tweet, that she was ready to retire and have a family.

    Let's just say, I'm happy that she upheld only one part of that tweet!
