Nicki Minaj's new hubby, Kenneth Petty, spared no expense when it came to his wife's wedding ring.
On Wednesday (October 30), the "Hot Girl Summer" rapper showed off the massive rock her spouse gifted her while sharing a look at their latest Halloween photoshoot. "#BrideOfChucky by @polkurucz hair by @kellonderyck makeup by @joycebonelli styled by @benjicarlisle our rings by @rafaelloandco," Nicki captioned the photo that showed Kenneth, who was dressed as Chucky, on bended knee to his bride.
The Queens native's jeweler also shared a shot of the newlyweds' wedding bands on Instagram, captioning the post: "Congrats to the King and Queen, We wish you both lots of love and happiness together. Thank you for trusting us with designing and making these very special pieces for you both. @nickiminaj."
According to TMZ, Kenneth paid for, designed and delivered the ring, which is valued at $1.1 million, on his own. The jeweler additionally told E! News that Nicki's center stone is 17 carats and a radiant cut. "I've known Nicki a long time, and they are definitely in love," Rafaello and Co. owner Gabriel Jacobs told the outlet. "It's no bullsh*t."
As fans know, Nicki and Kenneth tied the knot just over a week ago. After less than a year of dating — the couple went public last December — the 36-year-old rapper took to Instagram last Monday (October 21) to announce that she and Kenneth said, "I do."
Nicki shared the news by posting an Instagram video that showed "Mr. and Mrs." mugs and white baseball caps with "Bride" and "Groom" embroidered on them. Without revealing too many details about her low-key nuptials, the "Fendi" rapper captioned the clip, "👰🏽🤵🏽😢🙏🏽🎀 Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19."
Nicki first teased that she planned to wed Kenneth back in August when she revealed that the two had registered for a marriage license. "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," she said on a radio show. "I'm very very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy."
