‘I Knew It!’: Erica Mena and Safaree Send the Internet Into a Tizzy With Gender Reveal

It looks like “Love and Hip Hop” couple Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels are expecting a baby girl.

It was reported earlier this month that fans speculated that the sex of the newlywed’s baby would be female, and it looks like they were right after all. Mena, 31, and Samuels, 38, held a lavish gender reveal this past weekend in New York, surrounded by their loved ones to help them celebrate the special moment.

In a gender revelation video posted by both Samuels and his wife on Sunday afternoon, it shows a slew of pink fireworks going off to reveal the gender of their unborn daughter. Both the “Hunnid” rapper and the model fought back tears of joys and basked in the emotional moment together at the Suede Caribbean restaurant in New York.
