Over the weekend, the rapper finally introduced her Twitter followers to her 2-month-old by using the new feature that lets users post audio recordings. In the short, 27-second clip, the new mom can be heard speaking to her baby boy, whose name has not yet been revealed publicly.
“Say hi to the Barbz, papa bear. Say hi,” the Queens native said to the newborn, who replied back with a number of adorable coos. ”Whatcha doin’? Say something. Aww, you said hi to the Barbz? Good boy.”
Of course, her fanbase--who she lovingly refers to as the Barbz--was more than excited to hear this first glimpse of Nicki’s baby, especially since the rapper has been keeping mum about her personal life since her first child was born.
“AWWW SO CUTE,” one fan wrote. “Can we get a pic of his hand????”
“I bet he’s got the cutest most squishiest face ever,” replied another.
Fans were so amped up by the short audio clip that they even started editing remixes of Minaj’s songs with the baby’s coos included. Nicki responded to one of the edits saying, “No yall r freaking brazyyyyyyyyy wtffffffff.”

Nicki first announced she was pregnant back in July, revealing via a surprise maternity shoot that she was expecting her first child with her husband, Kenneth Petty. She took to Instagram to reveal her growing baby bump while wearing one of her signature bright yellow wigs and a floral bikini set. In the caption, she simply wrote, “#Preggers.”
On September 30, Nicki Minaj gave birth to her first child in Los Angeles, California.
While fans haven’t been given too many details about the newborn, Nicki is gearing up to premiere a documentary on HBO MAX, a series which many hope will offer a first look at the already-famous baby boy.
“I am beyond grateful & excited to share this news with you guys today,” the rapper wrote on Instagram on November 20. ”I couldn‘t be more thrilled to have #HBOMAX on board to help me tell my story in this delicate & memorable way. A way that my fans will love forever. This doc is next level. I can promise you that.”
