Nicki Minaj surprised her fans when she revealed on Monday that she has tied the knot with Kenneth Petty in a surprise wedding.

Showing a video of some new swag, Minaj showed off a mug that read " Mrs." and a hat that read "Bride" alongside a "Mr." mug and "Groom" ballcap. Picture: Getty Minaj shared a clip of the couple's matching "Mr and Mrs" coffee mugs and "Bride and Groom" baseball caps.

"I've chose to retire and have my family", she tweeted in September.

"When I posted that retirement tweet, I knew that I still had music that I already had recorded that was still gonna come out, so the retirement was kinda talking about [whether] I wanna go back and record my fifth album", Minaj tells TSR in the interview. "Love you for LIFE", she wrote.

Nicki says that she didn't know her fans would react the way that they did but, considering how big of a name the artist is, she should have seen that coming.

"I'll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. I'm very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy".

The same week, reports emerged about Nicki and Petty low-key getting a marriage license. The pair grew up together in Queens, New York, and were childhood sweethearts before going their separate ways, linking up again in December 2018.
