"In 2022, I'll definitely be married, and I'll definitely have my two children," she told Complex in 2012. "OK, I might have three."

At the time, Minaj mentioned how she wanted a baby boy since she had a close relationship with her younger brother and felt like it was her real son.

"And boys, they're just so, I don't know... My heart just melts when I see them," she added.
