Nicki Minaj is pregnant! She made the announcement in the cutest photo shoot which she shared on her social media page on Monday.
“Love. Marriage. Baby carriage,” she captioned in an Instagram post. “Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes.”
Minaj tapped photographer David LaChapelle for the Virgin Mary-inspired shoot. Known for his bright-colored, provocative images, LaChapelle’s style compliments Minaj’s signature neon hair and bold outfits.
This isn’t the first time the pair have collaborated together. Remember the super sexy M.A.C. Viva Glam campaign she shot with singer Ricky Martin? Yep, that was a David LaChapelle shoot!
