"#PapaBear, thank you very much for choosing me to be your mom. I wish you a happy and prosperous new year," Minaj wrote in her post. "Thank you for your love and support during this trip. It meant so much to me."
Minaj gave birth amid the coronavirus pandemic and exacerbated social and racial justice issues, and also noticed for the first time a mother understanding the difficulty of a healthy pregnancy during these events.
She applauded all "superhero mothers" who had similar experiences and gave them "big hugs."
"Becoming a mother is by far the most fulfilling job I've ever done," continued the rapper. "I send love to all of the superhero mothers out there. Hugs to all of the women who were pregnant during these challenging times."
