Nicki Minaj has welcomed her first child with Kenneth Petty.

The rapper gave birth to her first child on Wednesday in Los Angeles, Billboard reports. The sex or the child's name has yet to be confirmed.

Minaj, who announced that she was expecting her first child earlier this summer, has been married to Petty since last year.

The pair wed almost one year after the rapper announced her intention to retire from music to focus on her family.

"I've decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me … Love you for LIFE," she said on Twitter.

Minaj revealed that she was expecting her first child with Petty, who is a convicted sex offender, with a pregnancy photo shoot series and the simple caption: "Preggers."

"Love. Marriage. Baby carriage. Overflowing with excitement & gratitude. Thank you all for the well wishes," she added at the time.

Minaj and Petty have yet to comment on the birth.
