If you love rap music then you must know the so-called queen of rappers, Nicki Minaj. Nicki Minaj is the stage name of Trinidadian-born American rapper and songwriter known as Onika Tanya Maraj. Does that surprise you? Well, I bet many people do not really know Nicki’s real names. That aside, it is possible there is much more information about this artiste you still have no idea about.
In this post, we are going to discuss more Nicki Minaj’s age, kids, and parents. When you hear her rap, she does it so well that some people consider her origin, not of this planet. Nonetheless, she is a real human only that she is endowed with skills that very few people on earth have. Anyone related to her in blood, as well as others in her circle of friends, must be so proud of her achievements so far.
How old is Nicki Minaj?
It is not strange to hear women claim they are younger than they actually look. With the currently available medical technology, people can change the way they look much easier as long as they can afford it. This makes it difficult to know the real age of most superstars. So, what is the exact age, Nicki? Luckily, there is enough information to know her exact age.
As previously mentioned, Nicki was born Onika Tanya Maraj on December 8, 1982, in Sant James, Trinidad, and Tobago. She was however brought up in South Jamaica and Queens, New York. This makes her 32 years old but she looks much younger than women in her age group. She is still super hot, sexy, and gorgeous. That is my personal opinion because as they say, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. I believe she invests a lot of money in anti-aging products and cosmetic procedures.
Nicki Minaj Kids
Once you become a celebrity, your life is usually in the public domain. You cannot do anything and expect it to be hidden from the public, most of which are your fans. Most people have their children in their late teens or early twenty’s. Therefore at 32 years, Nicki Minaj is expected to have had at least one kid. Currently, she does not have any kids that we know of.
Recently in July 2015, there were rumors that Nicki was expecting her first child with Meek Mill, an American Hip Hop recording artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She moved very quickly to dispel those rumors. A common statement that where there is smoke there is fire could well apply in this case after the latest report indicates that the two lovebirds are planning to buy a house together in California. Meek Mill also hinted in an interview that he wished the rumors were true.
Earlier in December 2014, Nicki caused a storm when she openly admitted and talked about an abortion she had when she was just a teenager of 15 years. She claims she made the right decision because she was not ready to be a mother at the time. This is interesting considering the fact that she says the decision to abort the pregnancy has been haunting her for years. In her own words, the rapper actually asked her aborted child to forgive her because she was too young, immature, and busy making her life.
Nicki Minaj Parents: Who are Nicki Minaj’s biological parents
This superstar’s parents are both alive although they no longer live together as married couples. Her father Robert Omar Maraj was a financial executive and part-time gospel singer. Her mother, Carol Maraj, worked in the payroll and accounting departments. Nicki’s father was addicted to alcohol and drugs. He also had a violent temper which led him to burn their house in December 1987. Both parents were Trinidadians of African heritage but Omar was also of Asian origin.
The couple divorced and Nicki and her siblings had to move in with their grandmother in Queens, New York. Nicki was just 5 years old when they moved to Queens. The genre of music she chose partly depends on the life she had to go through in her neighborhood in Queens. She began her music career when she was just 12 years old. Nicki does not talk much about her father and chooses to defend her mother from the glaring faces of the camera and therefore protect her privacy.
