First Time Mom, Nicki Minaj Gets Real About Her Amazing Birth Story And ‘Painful’ Breastfeeding: ‘Women make this stuff look way too easy’

Rap queen, Nicki Minaj is marking her first holiday season as a first time mom and opening up about her experience with motherhood.

On Wednesday, the 38-year-old rapper, who welcomed a baby boy on September 30 with husband Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, shared candid details about going into labor in a Twitter Q&A with fans.

The new mom says she was “butt naked” and fresh out of the shower when her water broke. While Petty got “very scared,” Minaj says she was “weirdly calm.” She shared:

”Yes. I was butt naked. Just got out the shower & I asked him to rub my back. As soon as I started scooting over to him in the bed I just felt the water start coming out. I was weirdly calm & I quietly said “omg, I’m about to be in labor” He was very scared & I was laughing @ him.”

Mrs Petty went on to share that she was in labor “all night,” taking time to sleep until she had to push. She added:

”Well I was actually in labor all night but all they did was let me sleep until I dilated far enough to push. The epidural didn’t hurt either. They numbed me up real good. So I took my ass right to sleep.”
