Who is Papa Bear?

Papa Bear is the first child and son of Nicki Minaj. When we say Papa Bear, we are not referring to the Dutch musical artist making a name for himself in the industry. Actually, we are referring to the nickname that Nicki Minaj gave her son. Papa Bear is a lovely, cute cuddly child. Nicki Minaj has repeatedly said that the birth of her child has made her a better person. She also claims that now she sees the good in other people more than before.

Real Name

When Nicki Minaj gave birth to her son, the fans wanted two things; to see his face and to know what his name is. At first, Nicki held off from showing her son’s face until she felt ready to srae his face on social media. However, we can’t say the same about her son’s name which she has disclosed from the public from the moment he was born up till now. The rapper started calling her son Papa Bear; there was immediate suspicion that Papa Bear is not Nicki Minaj Son’s real name. After a while, people realized that Papa Bear is just a pet name by which his mother fondly refers to him as. With time, Nicki Minaj’s son gave him another nickname which is Simba. There were even some people alleging that his real name is Jacob due to a viral video of Nicki Minaj calling the boy Jacob.

However, Nicki Minaj has responded to those comments, clearly stating that Jacob is not Papa Bear’s real name. For now, Nicki Minaj has decided to keep her son’s name private and we choose to respect that. Nobody knows Papa Bear’s real name and we know she is going to reveal it when the time is right. Either way, it must be pretty exhausting for Nicki Minaj to work so hard to keep her son’s name under wraps.


Papa Bear was born on Wednesday, September 30th, 2020. This was the time when the CoronaVirus wave was still very much in season. Papa Bear’s celebrity mother is Nicki Minaj while his father is Kenneth Petty. His parents got married in 2019 and gave birth to him a year later.  At the time of his birth, his mother was 37 years old. He was born into fame as soon as he was born obviously because of his mother’s status as one of the most popular female rappers to ever exist.

At the time of writing the article, Papa Bear is 2 years old but already seems to be developing a captivating personality. His parents seem to be pouring so much love into him and that is making him grow into a very cheerful, playful, and brilliant toddler. For his first birthday, his parents outdid themselves and celebrated him in a very extravagant way. His birthday party was a cheerful Kung-fu Panda themed party. It seems like they are not ready to hold back when it comes to their son.


Papa Bear is a bright young boy. With his parents’ wealth, we can expect that he will be getting nothing but the best education. At the age of 11 months, he had already begun to speak his first words. Generally, he seems to be a very smart boy with a bright future ahead of him and we wish him all the best in life.


By now, you probably already know that Papa Bear’s mother is Nicki Minaj. Many people know her as Nicki but her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She is the internationally famous Trinidadian rapper that took the world by storm with her hit song. Nicki Minaj is currently 40 years old and is married to Kenneth Petty.

She is well known for her rap lines and eccentric appearance. She was born on 8th December, 1982 and studied Music and Performing Arts at the Fiorello H. LaGuardia high School. The rapper is of African and Trinidadian descent. She has a net worth of almost $190 million, making her one of the richest female rappers in the industry. She has been noted for being vocal about supporting a few other female rappers such as Coi Leray, Doja cat, and Mega Thee Stallion.


Papa Bear might have been born into the industry with fame and wealth by virtue of his parent’s status, but we really hope that he grows up to be a healthy, normal child. Talking about his real name and whatnot, to be honest, Nicki Minaj has the right not to disclose her son’s name to the general public as that is her child. We all know that being a child star and being born into the industry can have adverse effects on a child’s development, essentially depriving them of a normal childhood. We hope that Papa Bear does not experience this but rather that he lives a healthy happy life, hopefully.
