Nicki also shared her own thoughts on how her son could potentially act around his Barbz after a fan wrote:
“Imagine being @ NICKIMINAJ’s baby and having to share your mom with the Barbz.”

While it’s understandable that she’s now a little busier than usual, Nicki responded to a fan who suggested she find a nanny like

I wonder if I’m going to be one of them. those women who balance my child with a career. I have always said, “When I have my baby, it will all depend on my baby.”
I don’t want the kid to feel like he isn’t getting my full attention, so I’ve always said, “I’m going to take a little break.” But we will see.
It looks like Nicki may have manifested this beautiful chapter in her life as she and Kenneth continue to parenthood, but if we know anything about Nicki Minaj, it sure won’t be the last we hear from her.
