Nicki, who has been busy working on her album, said that she'll be holding off on having a "big wedding" until after the record is finished, but would have a smaller ceremony for now.

She said: "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.

"I’m very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy."

It's believed that Nicki met Kenneth when they were teenagers and living in Queens, but that they didn't pursue a romantic relationship until they were adults.

The star has faced some criticism for her romance with Kenneth, who has been convicted of manslaughter and registered as a sex offender.

Defending him in an Instagram post, she wrote: "He was 15, she was 16 … in a relationship. But go awf Internet. Y’all can’t run my life. Y’all can’t even run y’all own life. Thank you boo."

TMZ reports that Kenneth spent seven years behind bars for first-degree manslaughter, which he pleaded guilty to after initially being charged with second-degree murder.
