Love & Hip Hop: Erica Mena Shows Off Her Baby Bump, Safaree Is Over The Moon

Erica Mena shows off her growing baby bump while Safaree Samuels is over the moon.

“Love and Hip-Hop” star Erica Mena and rapper Safaree are expecting a baby, and the announcement has come with several photos showcasing Mena’s growing bump. The photos include an intimate shot of a topless Mena embracing her belly while Safaree, also topless, covers Mena’s chest and gazes down at his fiancé’s round belly. There is also a luxurious bathtub scene featuring a solo Mena in a sheer flowing dress, as well as a Bonnie and Clyde themed photo of the couple modeling with a classic car and brandishing toy guns. The photos are all very tasteful and beautiful, and fans of the couple are gushing on social media in response.

While the couple reportedly didn’t intend to announce the pregnancy just yet, they have now embraced the public’s involvement. Within twelve hours of Mena’s first baby bump pic, the post received over 460,000 likes and 12,000 comments. While there had been some speculation over recent Instagram photos posted by Mena that hinted at a baby belly, it seems nobody suspected that the pregnancy was already so far along. The couple also appeared in a video on VH1’s YouTube channel confirming the announcement and expressing their joy over the pregnancy.

Samuels and Mena were already scheduled to marry in front of VH1 cameras in just a few days, and now fans are looking forward to many more baby bump updates during the wedding preparation. Safaree, whose full name is Safaree Lloyd Samuels, says he’s excited about the arrival of his first child.

The rapper also posted the couple’s topless photo on his Instagram, writing, “I used to question things in life…now I don’t. My First. Thankful.” This will be Erica’s second child, second in line to her son born in 2007 from a previous relationship with Raul Conde.
