Forget ‘Barbie Dreams’.
Nicki Minaj it’s all about Kung Fu Panda, at least when it comes to throwing the best party for her son for his first birthday. The 38-year-old rapper, who welcomed her little one with husband Kenneth Petty last September, she did her best to celebrate her son’s milestone.
“On September 30, you turned 1.” the Queen artist captioned her Instagram on Tuesday, October 5. “Mommy’s so proud of you, PapaBear. You’re the best boy in the whole world. I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve you, but God bless you, son. Mommy and Daddy will never stop loving you .’
In addition to her sweet message, Nicki posted behind-the-scenes footage of her son’s lavish birthday party. In several photos, the family posed for a Kung Fu Pandathemed background decorated with cute cutouts of the characters, an array of panda balloons, and a banner that reads “Papa Bear’s First Birthday.”

In fact, “daddy bear” is a term Nicki affectionately calls her son. She has not yet released his real name publicly.
On Instagram Stories, the “Tusa” rapper showed off the sweet treats she had for her guests, including panda cupcakes and cake pops, as well as two three-tier cakes, one with a Kung Fu Panda design and sparkler candles.
Plus, the festivities wouldn’t be complete without a bouncy castle and photobooth!
“The kids were so… Absolutely the best,” Nicki shared in a separate Instagram post. “They did face painting, made balloons, made headbands, bouncy castle, photo booth, etc. And when everyone left, I forgot we didn’t cut the cake‼️‼️‼️”
The proud mom joked that the party was such a success that she had to “bring my baby out in his pajamas” so they could sing the happy birthday song.
She added: “It was so much fun. To everyone who sent a gift, he hasn’t opened any presents yet, but thank you, I love you. Happy 1st birthday. My world, my everything. yes I know I love you spamming my timeline but it’s for my pumpkin pie munchkin.”
Nicki’s friends and followers couldn’t help but gushed about her bundle of joy in the comments section.
“Happy Birthday Papa Bear!!!!!!” Lala Anthony replied. “Kiyan wait to play basketball with you!!”
“Congratulations,” Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudicea wrote, with RHOA alum Phaedra Parks adding: “Happy Birthday Papa Bear, Happy Birthday to the Queen who carried you.”
