Mena and Samuels announced they were with child in October 2019, nearly 10 months after they got engaged in December 2018.
The couple’s unborn daughter will be their first child together. Mena, however, is the mother of 12-year-old King Conde, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend and Latin artist Raul Conde.
Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of rap diva Nicki Minaj, will be a first-time father. He told E! Online in October, “Wow, wow, it’s a big deal! Very big deal. I didn’t know I was capable of doing this. I’m excited!”
He continued, “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.”
Mena recently addressed fans whom claimed she been pregnant for “forever.” She wrote in an Instagram post on Jan. 5, “I can no longer sleep laying down completely. I’m still craving soft glazed donuts. I’m getting kicked nonstop by Her. I’m still more comfortable in heels than flats. So yes if it feels like I been pregnant forever for you – You can’t imagine what it’s been feeling like for me.”
