Nicki Minaj celebrates son's first birthday

The rapper has not revealed her son's real name yet but calls him 'Papa Bear'.

When it comes to throwing her kid the prettiest celebration for his first birthday, Nicki Minaj is all about Kung Fu Panda. The 38-year-old musician, who gave birth to her son with husband Kenneth Petty in September, went over and above to mark the occasion.

On Tuesday, Oct. 5, the Queen musician wrote her Instagram, "On Sept. 30th you turned 1. Mama is so proud of you, PapaBear. You're the best boy in the whole wide world. I don't know what I did to deserve you, but God bless you, son. Mommy Daddy will never stop loving you."



Nicki also shared behind-the-scenes footage from her son's opulent birthday celebration, in addition to her beautiful message. The family posed in front of a Kung Fu Panda-themed backdrop with cute cut-outs of the characters, an abundance of panda balloons, and a banner reading "Papa Bear's First Birthday" in many photographs.

In fact, Nicki fondly refers to her son as "papa bear." She has yet to reveal his true identity to the world.


The "Tusa" rapper took to Instagram Stories to show off the delicious goodies she had prepared for her guests, including panda cupcakes and cake pops, as well as two three-tiered cakes, one of which had a Kung Fu Panda pattern with sparkler candles.

The party wouldn't be complete without a jumping castle and a photobooth, of course!
