Minaj and Petty tied the knot in October 2019. Four years earlier, in an interview with Cosmopolitan, the “Chun-Li” rapper predicted that she would be married with children within a decade. “Ten years from now, I will have two children, unless my husband wants three,” she said at the time. “I will be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting, and I’ll be a housewife with careers that I can run from home.
“I want to be able to cook for my children, bake cookies for them, and watch them grow up. I just want to be mommy,” she continued. “Take them to school, go to the parent-teacher conference, help them with their homework, and put their work on the refrigerator.”
