Rap Queen Nicki Minaj was a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday night. She talked about motherhood and her husband, Kenneth Petty.
Host James Corden asked rapper Nicki Minaj if being a mother changed her. The Grammy-winning celebrity answered immediately. “Of course, yes.”
“I think motherhood has made me see more good in people, more good in the universe. It makes you more of a forgiving person,” the “Barbie Tingz” artist explained on the show.
“When I look at my son, I’m reminded that I am so blessed,” she continued. “I realized, for so many women, this is their dream. Their dream is to have a child and not everybody gets that blessing. So when you have a little baby, you are reminded every day like, ‘Oh my God. Thank you God for this little gift.’ ”
“He’s just walking around and telling everybody, grown adults, ‘What are you doing? What are you doing?’ ” she told Corden.
“If I’m feeding him his food and take too long with the next spoon, he’s like ‘What are you doing? What are you doing?’ I’m like, what are YOU doing?” Minaj added with a laugh. “And he repeats everything now so a couple of times I feel like we might’ve heard him say something a little crazy.”

The rapper, who we can call a new mother, showed her son’s face to her fans for the first time in January. “#PapaBear thank you so very much for choosing me to be your mama 🎀🦄🙏 ,” she captioned a loving tribute.
“Becoming a mom is by far the most fulfilling job I’ve ever taken on,” she added. “Sending love to all the superhero mothers out there. Big hugs to all the women who have been pregnant during this challenging time.”
