Nicki Minaj is “retiring” from music to start a family.

The “Superbass” hitmaker has revealed she is taking a break from her music so she can have kids with her beau Kenneth Petty.

“I’ve decided to retire and have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, [check] in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE,” she wrote on Twitter.

Nicki – who has since changed her surname on social media to Petty – recently revealed she plans to marry Petty within the next 80 days.

“[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. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days. 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,” she said in mid-August on her Queen Radio show.

“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.”

Meanwhile, Minaj had previously slammed people who said she was “lowering standards” by dating Petty.

“When a person is with a n—- that loved them before they had a dime in their pocket … how do you not understand that? How do you not understand happiness versus clout? How f—ing dare you talk about lowering standards,” she declared.
