Congrats: Safaree Samuels Reveals Estranged Wife Erica Mena Birthed A Baby Boy, Shares First Photo

Congratulations are in order for reality tv stars and married couple Erica

Mena and Safaree Samuels, they just welcomed a new baby boy! Last night, papa Safaree

announced to fans and followers on Instagram that his and Erica’s newborn baby son

arrived. The couple has been going through some rough times as they’ve announced

they’re divorcing recently. News of the split came just days after Erica originally

announced she was pregnant with baby number two.

In the post announcing the infant’s arrival, Safaree revealed that Erica had given birth to

a boy, writing “MR Stra-ittt jr is here!!” alongside a few praying hands emojis.


The Love & Hip Hop ​star also shared a sweet photo of the newborn gripping his finger to

his Instagram story captioning the photo “Another me… that’s all the world needed.”

The photo of Safaree is a sign that he was seemingly able to attend the birthing sight of

his new baby, something that was a controversial topic recently. The father asked a

judge to preemptively grant him permission to be able to witness the baby’s birth amid

the news that he and Erica were divorcing. As far as we know, Erica didn’t fight Safaree’s

request on paper.

According to the divorce docs, Mena who has been married to Safaree since 2019, filed

for divorce back in May citing that their marriage was “irretrievably broken” with “no

hope of reconciliation.” Mena has also asked for joint legal custody of their 2 children

and requested temporary physical custody of Saffire “with the parties having parenting

time as determined in the minor children’s best interests,” People notes.

Mena also added later that stress associated with Safaree and their split caused her

some pregnancy complications. The ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star alleged her estranged

husband Safaree has “failed to be involved in her care or to visit her at the hospital

during her most recent stay, where she remained overnight for many days related to her


So far, Erica has not shared the news of her son’s arrival personally. This newborn

bundle of joy marks the couple second’s child together. They also co-parent and raise

their 1-year-old daughter Saffire. Mena also has a 14-year-old son named King who she

shares with ex, Raul Conde.
