‘Super Bass’ singer Nicki Minaj is likely still a few years off from motherhood, but it sounds like she has her family plans all mapped out.
“In 2022, I’ll definitely be married and I’ll definitely have my two children,” the 29-year-old rapper tells Complex magazine. “I might have three, but I do want at least one boy…. I don’t think I even need a girl. I need a boy, though.”
Nicki explains that her very close relationship with her little brother makes her want to have a son of her own.
“Yeah, [you think I want a daughter] ’cause you think I’m going to dress her up in wigs. No. [Laughs] I really need a boy in my life. A baby boy. Because… I’m so attached to my little brother and I felt like that was my real son. And boys, they’re just so, I don’t know… my heart just melts when I see them.”
Will she keep pursuing her music career after kids come along? Nicki says she’s not sure.
“I always said, ‘There’s no way I could still be doing rap, ’cause what will I still be talking about?’ But now that the public has given me this opportunity to do all types of music, I might have more longevity…. I know that I don’t feel like I need to be doing music in 10 years to feel fulfilled.”
