Nicki Minaj just became a mommy. 

The rapper's mom Carol Maraj announced the news via Instagram sharing an illustration of Nicki and baby by Italian artist, Vincenzo Martorana

WATCH | Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are parents!

"Thank you Lord for blessing my daughter @nickiminaj with a beautiful bundle of joy! You have always been a blessing to myself and your family, and now you have received one of the best blessings from God." Maraj wrote adding the hashtag #glamma to the post.

 

Glamma Maraj made no mention of the baby's gender or name so baby Minaj will have to do for now. 

Whatever name the new mom decides on we can only assume it'll be something unique if the little one is going to fit into the Minaj-Maraj fam.
