We were all surprised when reality TV star, Erica Mena announced her second pregnancy with husband Safaree Samuels given the tumulous nature of their two-year marriage. But no one apparently was more surprised and even displeased like Samuels himself.
On the recent episode of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta (LHHATL) Mena shared news of her 23-weeks pregnancy with her husband, Samuels. During the confessional, she admitted that she was nervous about his reaction.
“I don’t want to feel like I regret telling him,” she said. “And it’s sad to say because this is my husband. I’m supposed to be ecstatic. I’m supposed to be like, ‘I can’t wait to see his face. Oh my god. How’s he going to react?’ I’m actually more scared, and that puts me in a dark place.”
“I know things have been weird for us lately,” she said to Samuels. I’ve heard you make statements like, ‘Having a baby is a lot of work,.” “Oh, it definitely [is],” Safaree replied to his wife. “It’s lightened up maybe this much (holds fingers up to signal a little relief), but the first year is definitely a lot.”
He seems to be at ease in the conversation until Mena finally worked up the courage to show him a sonogram of their unborn child.
“So, what, you’re pregnant,” Samuels asked his wife after looking at the image on her phone. “We’re pregnant,” Erica replied. Safaree gave his wife a blank stare before how far along she was. The LHHATL star was shocked to learn that his wife was 23 weeks into her expectancy.
He said in the confessional; “I’m flabbergasted. I just don’t get it. And that just goes to show how distant we’ve been. We live in the same house, she’s this far along pregnant, and I didn’t know. This is crazy.”
But what most people on social media found crazy was his reaction to her announcement. Check out these reactions BUZZ Fam.
We gotta say, the silver lining in all of this is that Mena filed for divorce.
