While the future of Minaj’s music career appears to be up in the air aside from her most recent single yikes the Queens, New York, native had hinted at a new album — as well as changes in her personal life — over the past months. In June 2019, Minaj said on “Queen Radio” that she and Petty had acquired a marriage license
“We did get our marriage license,” the “Super Bass” rapper said during her show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio. “I think I have what I was striving for, just happiness. It was so hard to get to a happy place. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to compromise that for anyone or anything.”
Then in July of that year, Minaj (birth name: Onika Maraj) appeared to confirm she was engaged — and expecting — in her Chance the Rappers collaboration Zannies and Fools As she rapped on the track, “He the Clyde to my Bonnie, ’bout to walk down the aisle and be a mommy” and “I met my husband when I was 17 out in Queens.”

And in August, the hip-hop star changed her Twitter display name  from “Ms. Minaj” to “Mrs. Petty” just days after revealing she and Petty had renewed their marriage license.

At the time, Minaj explained that she and Petty “filed for the marriage license and 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.”

“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,” the rapper said. “I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will. have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married.”

Minaj revealed the exciting news that the two had wed in late October with a video on Instagram, showing matching “Mr. and Mrs.” mugs and black and white baseball caps with “Bride” and “Groom” written across the front.
Keeping it simple, she captioned the short clip “👰🏽🤵🏽😢🙏🏽🎀 Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19” — referencing her new official name and seemingly the day that she and Petty officially tied the knot.
