According to a TMZ report, Nicki got married to childhood friend Kenneth Petty in 2019. They first dated as teenagers and reunited in 2018.

Minaj even dropped hints about her pregnancy in May, when answering some fan questions she talked about mad cravings, "nausea and peeing nonstop," and even teased a possible baby bump.

As per E!News, Prior to her relationship with Petty, Minaj was in a relationship with Meek Mill. However, the stars called it quits in 2017. Minaj was also previously in a longterm relationship with Safaree Samuels.

Musically, Minaj has also had a winning year, topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart twice. Her remix of Doja Cat’s 'Say So' helped Minaj achieve her first-ever No 1 on the Hot 100, despite releasing multiple hits throughout her career. She also reached the top spot with 'Trollz,' her collaboration with 6ix9ine.
