Rumors over Nicki Minaj’s possible pregnancy began to ramp up last month, after the MC collaborated with rapper 6ix9ine for the song “Trollz,” she has previously talked about wanting to start a family, telling Vogue Italia in 2014 that she hoped to eventually become a full-time mom.
“I don’t want to work all my life and never experience the joys of a family,” Minaj said. “It isn’t time yet, but when I decide to get married and become a mother, I would like to take a break and devote myself completely to my child.”
Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty first dated when she was 16 years old and living in Queens and made their relationship Instagram official in December 2018. Minaj and Petty wed in October 2019, a month after the 37-year-old announced her intention to retire to start a family.
Minaj surprised fans in October when she posted about marrying Petty, an old friend of hers.
Keeping it simple, Minaj 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.
The relationship between Minaj and Petty has not been entirely without controversy.
Kenneth Petty was convicted of attempted first-degree rape in connection with a 1994 assault that occurred when both he and the victim were 16. He was sentenced to between 18 and 54 months in state prison and was released in January 1999 after serving just under four years.
Petty went back to prison in 2006 after a first-degree manslaughter conviction and served nearly seven years before being released on parole in May 2013.
Addressing her boyfriend’s past, Nicki Minaj responded to a fan in the comments section of one of her Instagram posts, writing, “He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship. But go awf Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo.”
