It looks like Nicki Minaj has finally become someone’s wife! The rapper just revealed, through an Instagram post, that she has officially married her boyfriend, Kenneth Petty. Though she has had multiple relationships before, she has been most vocal and admittedly most serious with Petty. And now, she plans to create a family with him.
On her new Instagram post, she shared a video zooming in on various wedding paraphernalia. It starts with a ‘Mrs.” mug, then pans to a white cap embroidered with a golden ‘Bride’. Beside it sits a black cap embroidered with a white ‘Groom,’ until it finally pans to a ‘Mr.’ mug. “👰🏽🤵🏽😢🙏🏽🎀 Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19” she shared in her caption. It’s the first time ‘Barbz’ has ever revealed her real name herself. However, she has yet to reveal where they got married and if some of her famous friends were invited. Though some have already extended their congratulations in the comments.
“Congratulations to you both on your beautiful Union ♥️♥️🎉🎉” replied Naomi Campbell to the post. “Congrats Nick‼️‼️u did it 🙏🏽🏆❤️” commented Lala Anthony. Notably, Eva Marcille was the first to address Minaj by her new married name. “CONGRATULATIONS Mrs. Petty” she shared. Model Winnie Harlow, on the other hand, noted how much Minaj deserves this. She commented, “So happy for you Mrs.Bride you deserve all the happiness in the world 💞👰🏾👑”. The new Mrs. Petty’s fellow rapper, Akbar V, meanwhile, asked to be invited to the grand wedding Minaj may plan to hold later on. “@nickiminaj i need a invite to wedding” she quipped. Minaj has long been vocal about wanting to get married. In her Queen Radio show months prior, she already admitted that she and Petty had already obtained a marriage license. “We still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again. From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days.” the rapper said. She also noted that music had kept her busy from doing a more traditional ceremony. “I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later.” she relayed.
Petty and Minaj have known each other for quite some time. The rapper even shared that they first became friends in childhood, eventually becoming partners less than a year ago. “We’ve known each other since we were kids” and talked about her family plans.” the “Super Bass” rapper told E! News. “I always said that I wanna be married if I have children, so just in case I have a child, then I would be married,”. Congratulations to the happy couple!
