Erica welcomes second child with Safaree Samuels amid divorce
Samuels, 39, announced the baby’s arrival on Instagram on Monday night, posting a photo of himself cradling the newborn he shares with his estranged wife Mena, 33.
“MR. Straittt Jr. has arrived!!” The lovely photo was captioned by Samuels.
The rapper also shared another photo of the baby holding one of his fingers on his Instagram Story.
He captioned the photo, adding angel and laughing emojis, “Another me…. That’s all the world needs.”
After a year and a half of marriage, the Love & Hip Hop stars called it quits in late May.
According to TMZ, PageSix, and Entertainment Tonight, Mena filed for divorce from Samuels in Georgia’s Fayette County Superior Court.
Mena said her marriage to Samuel is “irretrievably ruined” with “no possibility of reconciliation,” according to court documents obtained by Page Six.
She also requested shared legal custody, final decision-making authority, and temporary and permanent physical custody of Safire “with the parties having parenting time as decided in the minor children’s best interests,” according to Entertainment Tonight.
