‘The Sweetest Angel’: Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels’ Daughter’s Hot Chocolate Photo Shoot Gets Fans Into the Holiday Spirit

Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels‘ daughter Safire Samuels may be the sweetest little cup of hot cocoa that fans have ever seen!

The adorable 10-month-old was filmed having a good old time in her bonnet while taking a faux hot chocolate bath, complete with marshmallows and a giant straw as “The Cuppycake Song” by Buddy Castle featuring Amy Castle played in the background. Baby Safire appeared to be excited while soaking in her hot cocoa bath and was busy trying to grab as many marshmallows as she could.

The 33-year-old Mena, who is looking forward to spoiling her daughter for “her very first Christmas,” used the song’s lyrics to caption her video, while also giving props to the creative team behind the shoot.

“You’re my honey bun sugar plumβ™₯️ @safiremajesty is getting ready for her very first Christmas πŸŽ„ Thank you Queens @weelovephotography & @willowmintprops You both have our hearts. Happy Holidays Everyone β™₯️,” she wrote.

The infant’s sweet shoot received attention from her parents’ famous fans, including plenty of fellow television personalities who couldn’t get over how precious she looked at the holiday-themed shoot.
