Nicki Minaj has married her rapper boyfriend Kenneth Petty.

She made the announcement on her Instagram page, with a video showing matching “Mr. and Mrs.” mugs and black and white baseball caps that had “Bride” and “Groom” written across the front.

Captioning the clip with a bride and groom emoji, Nicki - who was born Onika Tanya Maraj - wrote: "Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10-21-19 (sic)".

This appears to be a reference to the date of their wedding on October 21.

Last Thursday, Nicki had revealed that she was getting ready to get married "in the next seven days".

"We've gotten our marriage licence, but there's a particular pastor who I want to officiate and so she was just made available as of today," she said.

But Nicki wasn't expecting to wear a traditional wedding gown for the occasion.

"That's too much. I can't. There's no way. That will take too long to plan. I'm not good with that. I'm a procrastinator, so it would come in, like, two years from now."

In an August episode of her Queen Radio show, Nicki revealed the pair would be married in "about 80 days" after obtaining their marriage licence.
