Nicki Minaj’s ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels is set to become a father for the first time.
Samuels is set to wed rapper Bow Wow’s ex-fiancee Erica Mena on 7 October, after he proposed to the reality TV star on Christmas Eve last year, but a week before the big day the pair revealed they are expecting their first child together.
“It’s a big deal, a very big deal, I didn’t think I was capable of doing this,” he said in a YouTube video in which they shared their big news. “I am excited, nervous, in shock, in disbelief.”
While Mena, who already has a son, King Conde, from a previous relationship, didn’t disclose how far along she is. But the couple has revealed their new arrival is due early 2020.
Mena appeared on VH1 show Love & Hip Hop New York before moving to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Samuels began appearing on the show following his split from Minaj in 2014.
