Rumors have been swirling regarding Love & Hip Hop couple Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels possibly expanding their family.
The couple is, in fact, expecting, as E! News reports. In an exclusive video, Mena and Samuels partake in a pregnancy reveal that was inspired by Bonnie and Clyde.
“Wow, wow, it’s a big deal! Very big deal. I didn’t know I was capable of doing this,” Samuels shared while rubbing Mena’s belly. “I’m excited!”
“I’m nervous. I’m in shock. I’m in disbelief. It’s very surreal to me. I don’t know what to do but I know I’m going to be great at what I do because I’m great at everything,” he added.
Although the couple is used to living their lives in the spotlight, they want to be very selective about what they share in regards to their new forthcoming “bundle of joy.”
Mena is concerned about how she and Samuels will “protect our kid from the craziness.” Samuels, on the other hand, is concerned about the child getting a job already.
“We’re going to be selective but at the same time, this baby will come out of the womb working,” Samuels joked. “I was working very early. I’m about to pull a DJ Khaled. As soon as this baby comes out, we are working.”In the video, Samuels shared what his experience was like when his sister gave birth to his first niece.”When my sister gave birth to my first niece, I was in the room…I just woke up and the baby was there,” he shared. “I don’t plan on looking. I’ll be looking at her and being her rock and her support.”
