Grammy-nominated Minaj revealed she has a marriage licence – which a couple must get before walking down the aisle in the US.
And she said her “end goal” is to get pregnant.
Minaj’s relationship with Petty has been controversial.
It emerged he was convicted of attempted rape in 1995 – and later spent seven years in prison for manslaughter.
But Minaj has dismissed the criticism and released the music video for her latest single Megatron this week – which showed her grinding on Petty.
Speaking on Queen Radio, she said she is now in her “happy place” and enjoying her “downtime”.
She said: “I think I have what I was striving for – just happiness.
“It was so hard to get to a happy place.

“Now that I’m there I don’t want to compromise that for anyone of anything.
“Certain travelling things I don’t wanna do it. I’m just enjoying my downtime.”
In the same episode, she reignited her feud with Miley Cyrus, calling her a “Perdue chicken” – which is a brand of meat in the US.
