Nicki Minaj is a new mom! She welcomed her first child with husband Kenneth Petty on Wednesday in Los Angeles, Billboard can confirm.

The baby's name and sex has yet to be revealed. New parents Minaj and Petty are also coming up on their first wedding anniversary on Oct. 21.

The 37-year-old queen of the Barbz announced her pregnancy with a series of baby bump pictures on Instagram July 20, which included a glorious professional shot from famed photographer David LaChappelle.

"Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes," she captioned one of the pregnancy announcement images at the time.

In court documents obtained by TMZ last July, a judge granted the request of her 42-year-old husband, who registered as a sex offender in California, to modify his pre-trial release conditions. This allowed him to not only travel with his wife but also be present with her for the birth of their baby if it occurred outside of his curfew hours.
