Minaj announced that she had finally married Petty, 41, on Monday with a video on Instagram, showing matching “Mr. and Mrs.” mugs and black and white baseball caps that had “Bride” and “Groom” written across the front.
Keeping it simple, the rapper 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.
Reps for Minaj did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Minaj and Petty have been dating since 2018, going Instagram-official with their relationship in December of that year. Since then, the two have been hot and heavy on social media, posing in photo after photo together.
The rapper has also received backlash from many of her fans due to Petty’s criminal past, which includes being a registered sex offender in the state of New York and serving time in prison for manslaughter after being convicted in 2002.
“We still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again,” she explained. “From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days.”
Even though she made it official, Minaj said she still had music priorities to attend to.
“I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now,” she said at the time. “We’ll do the big wedding later.”
