Drake and Nicki Minaj plan playdates for their children
Drake responded to Nicki’s playdate invitation on the “Whole Lotta Choppas (Remix).”
This week was an exciting one for the Barbz. On Thursday (Oct. 15), Nicki Minaj finally revealed the gender of her first child, who she and her husband Kenneth Petty welcomed into the world this September. In an Instagram post, Nicki announced that she gave birth to a baby boy, while thanking several celebrity friends for their support.
“I am so grateful & in love with my son,” she wrote. “Madly in love. My favorite liddo boy in the whole wide world.”
Later in the day, Nicki also made her musical return when she guested on Sada Baby’s “Whole Lotta Choppas (Remix).” The Queen rapper’s new verse included references to her newborn son and Drake’s 3-year-old, Adonis. In the track, Nicki said she hopes that one day both of their sons will play together.
“To be honest, I hope one day we do a playdate with Adonis,” she rhymed.
Drake apparently took notice of the shoutout and responded to Nicki’s invitation on his Instagram Story.
“Play dates soon come [Nicki Minaj],” he wrote, tagging Nicki and posting a picture of the remix’s cover art.
As previously reported by REVOLT, Nicki gave birth to her son in Los Angeles on Sept. 30. Her mother, Carol Maraj, congratulated her soon after with a touching Instagram post.
“Thank you Lord for Blessing my daughter [Nicki Minaj] with a beautiful bundle of joy!” she wrote. “You have always been a Blessing to myself and your family, and now you have received one of the best Blessings from God. ‘Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a reward from Him.’ Psalms 127:3 #glamma let us rejoice!!!!”
Drizzy, on the other hand, celebrated his son Adonis’ third birthday earlier this week. “Young Stunna,” he captioned a picture of himself and Adonis, surrounded by birthday balloons.
By the looks of it, playdates between Adonis and Nicki’s son are in the near future. See Drake’s reply and listen to the “Whole Lotta Choppas (Remix)” below.
