Samuels is ecstatic about becoming a first-time father, adding in their pregnancy announcement video on October 1, “Wow, wow, it’s a big deal! Very big deal. I didn’t know I was capable of doing this. … I’m excited!”
“I’m nervous. I’m in shock. I’m in disbelief,” he continued. “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.”
The 38-year-old rapper proposed to Mena on Christmas eve at her house in Atlanta. A month prior to their engagement, he claimed his fiancée was “the one” for him, telling Page Six at the time, “When I’m not with her, I get headaches because I’m just thinking about her nonstop.”
