AceShowbiz - Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena took their relationship to another level after the former got down on one knee and popped the question at her house in Atlanta during the Christmas Eve. The engagement came after they're together for only 4 months, prompting people to speculate that Erica is having a bun in the oven. Further adding fuel to the rumors are photos from the heartwarming events that featured the "Love & Hip Hop" star sporting what looked like a baby bump.
One photo on Instagram saw Safaree presenting a big ring to Erica, who looked obviously touched, while being on his knee. Erica donned a beautiful white dress, and people couldn't help noticing her growing mid-section.
"I think she's pregnant, Amen," one Instagram user commented under the post, while another one added, "Is it because shes prego." Another comment read, "I see a bun."

Another source reveals that Erica found out about the pregnancy last month. "Safaree was so happy, he went into super-dad mode," adds the insider.
Amid the speculations of her eating for two and that her engagement was a shotgun one, Erica took to her social media account to end them once and for all. In a video that saw her lyiong on the bed, she could be heard giggling and saying, "I'm not pregnant, I'm sorry."
She then alluded that the bump was nothing but a food baby. "I'm happy though, and I've been eating a lot," she said. "Trust me though, when I do get pregnant...y'all think I slay now? S**t..."
Safaree proposed to Erica, who is a mother to her 11-year-old son names King Conde with her ex-partner Raul Conde, in front of her friends and family. The romantic event took place in a dimlit room that was filled with 200 rose petals and 200 candles.
