Brown, 25, and the 30-year-old singer exchanged vows in November after the NBA player popped the question with a massive, rose-cut diamond ring in October. The two met over the summer when Brown starred in the music video for Monica’s single "Love All Over Me."
"That’s my wife, I’m her husband, you know. We’re going to continue to make positive things happen," Brown told the "Hip Hop Non Stop TV Show."
The couple are planning a second wedding ceremony and reception for family and friends to attend in June.
The singer, whose real name is Monica Denise Arnold, has two children with former boyfriend rapper Rodney "Rocko" Hill — the pair were engaged but split in 2010.
Brown, who agreed to a two-year, $4.6 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers in August, was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft. His brief pro career has seen stints with Chicago, Charlotte and LA, where he has won two NBA Championships.
