New York rapper Safaree Samuels can’t wait to enjoy a happy life with a happy wife. The hip-hop artist hit up social media this week to gush over his fiancée Erica Mena.

Safaree went to Instagram Thursday (January 10) with some extra gushy words for his soon-to-be wife.

In late December, Erica hinted at having some major news for their fans.

According to reports, Safaree received the green light from Erica’s family to pop the engagement question.

A rep for Safaree, KD McNair, tells TMZ … Safaree made it his mission to first ask Erica’s family for their blessing, reaching out to them weeks before popping the question. Safaree and Erica started dating this year, but their engagement wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment thing … we’ve learned the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ stars first met when Erica was 17. We’re told Erica’s mom and son were 100% down with the proposal … they’ve loved Safaree ever since he starred alongside Erica in VH1’s “Scared Famous.” (TMZ)

The same week, both Samuels and Mena went to their Instagram pages to reflect on the headline-generating proposal.
