In 2018, Minaj told Wonderland how much she wanted to have kids. "I’ve got to get married first then I’ll have a child. I might be closer than people think actually,” she said. "I love children. I’m not going to put that off for much longer."

Minaj and Petty have been married since October 2019. She recently described their marriage as "refreshing and calming." Congrats to the couple!
