Awwwwww! #Safaree Samuels has put a ring on it after proposing to his love, #EricaMena, on Christmas Eve. The Love & Hip Hop: New York star got down on one knee on Monday to pop the question to Erica, whom he has been dating since earlier this year. And, of course, she said the all important yes. In an Instagram video, Erica is seen walking up a candlelit aisle in her Atlanta home wearing a slinky white dress, surrounded by a group of their close friends. Safaree reportedly decorated her home with 200 candles and 20,000 rose petals. So romantic. Safaree reportedly spent $175,000 on the engagement ring. Safaree enlisted R&B group 112 to serenade them with their romantic ballads Cupid and Crazy Over You, before presenting Erica with an engagement ring he bought this summer. _ As she realised what was happening, Erica burst into tears and asked: ‘Are you serious?’ While the lovebirds are yet to address the engagement on social media, Erica is seen wearing her sparkling new engagement ring while unwrapping a Fendi gift from her new fiance. It comes after Safaree revealed in August that he had bought an engagement ring so that he could be ready to propose once he’d found the right woman. According to TMZ, the diamond ring is worth around $175,000 and features 14 carats set in platinum. The reality TV star tweeted at the time: ‘Whoever she is will have the baddest rock a finger can hold!! I just wanna ice her up [sic].’ _ Coincidentally, the engagement comes just days after Erica’s ex-girlfriend Cyn Santana got engaged to Joe Budden after he proposed during a live recording of his podcast at Town Hall in New York. Earlier this week, Safaree proudly revealed he has just bought his first ever home which will no doubt become his and Erica’s love nest. ‘Tis the season to put a ring on it.
Safaree and Erica have been dating for a while now, and sources who are close to them indicated that Erica would bring her romance with Safaree to the screen on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta where she currently stars opposite K Michelle, Stevie J, Tommie Lee, and all the other A-listers.
Congratulations, Safaree and Erica, and have a Merry Christmas!
