Nicki Minaj (36) is married to her friend Kenneth Petty (41). She announced this with a video via Instagram.

On the video we first see a mug on the counter with 'Mrs.' Then a white cap with the print 'bride', a mug with 'Mr.' and a black cap with 'groom'.

The accompanying text with the video announces the date of the wedding followed by a number of emojis. The couple is said to have married on October 21 of this year. Minaj hinted earlier via social media that she would be married by changing her name to Mrs. Petty. It seems that the real marriage has only just taken place.

Earlier this year, the rapper announced that she would retire and focus on a family. "I'm going to retire and start a family," tweets the Anaconda rapper. "I know you are happy now."
