Minaj married Petty, whom she's known since her childhood, last October. She shared the news with a sweet Instagram video.

The rapper surprised fans when she sent out a tweet in September that seemed to announce her departure from the music industry. “I’ve decided to retire and have my family. I know you guys are happy now,” she wrote at the time.

Minaj later clarified her post in an interview with The Shade Room: "It was really about the fifth album. Where do I stand with it now? I didn't know my fans were gonna act like that with the tweet and it hurt my feelings because I felt like the way I did it was maybe insensitive to my fans. But I didn't think people were going to take it ... I didn't know it was going to be that big of a deal, so that's why I deleted it."
