Onika Tanya Maraj, a.k.a. Nicki Minaj, is officially Mrs. Petty... at least on Twitter.

On Friday (August 16), Nicki appeared to either let the cat out the bag that she's married or simply jumped the gun because the "Welcome To The Party" rapper let her 20 million Twitter followers know that she's said goodbye to her maiden name and hello to her boyfriend Kenneth Petty's last name.

While her handle remains @NICKIMINAJ, her twitter name is now "Mrs. Petty." The move came just days after the 36-year-old rapper confirmed that she and Kenneth will tie the knot in "about 80 days." She also revealed some details about her wedding, saying, "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. We’ll do the big wedding later."

Nicki added that she and Kenneth recently picked up their marriage license, which puts them on a time crunch to make their union official. "[We] filed for the marriage license and we still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again. From that time, you have 90 days to get married," she explained. "That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days."

"I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married," the "Hot Girl Summer" rapper shared. "I'm very very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy."
