Both of their wedding rings contain huge diamonds. Minaj, whose real name is now Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, has a huge Emerald cut diamond while her husband has a diamond-encrusted wedding band.

Nicki Minaj and Petty also both took to Instagram to sarcastically address whether Minaj purchased the wedding rings herself. After discussing their wedding rings, the rapper also talked about becoming a United States citizen, as she’s originally from Trinidad.

“You mean I didn’t buy this ring?” Minaj said “No, you didn’t buy that ring…you got your citizenship. Your green card,” Petty replied.

“Oh, thank you, Chucky because you are an American. I can now fill out paperwork to vote,” Minaj continued.
