Before the birth of their first child together, the married VH1 stars of the hit show Love and Hip Hop Safaree and Erica Mena performed a series of gender reveals to find out whether they’re having a boy or girl.
In the set of stringed-together shorts, they try three very popular gender reveal tactics to determine if they are having a boy or girl for their first child together. First, they cut open a white frosted several-layered cake hoping to see a pink or blue colored inside but no luck!
There is a set of different colored layers of a rainbow cake. Womp Womp Womp!!! Next up…the balloon reveal. Will this trick reveal the baby’s sex or no?
A bunch of white balloons drift out when they open it together at the count of 3 so… no luck there, either. Their banter is pretty funny in between each “reveal.” Finally, they dry the usual poppers which usually stream out pink or blue confetti if done right. But for the Samuels, they get a bunch of tiny bills flowing out! Not “tiny” as in $1s but as in miniature bills! ha!
It’s a fun reveal and in the end, we still do not know. Stay tuned!
Love & Hip Hop New York follows the lives and relationships of hip-hop artists as they make their mark on the Big Apple. The cast includes the outspoken Joe Budden, Cyn Santana, Remy Ma, Papoose, Juelz Santana, Kim “Kimbella” Vanderhee and more.
Expecting rapper Remy Ma and her husband Papoose hit up The Real Talk to talk all things baby, pregnancy and parenting. The couple, who is expecting their first child together after suffering a miscarriage, also shared that they plan to have more children.
When Tamera Mowry-Housley asked them about it, the Love And Hip Hop star gave a detailed reply that included insights on her fertility struggles and successes:
“Ok, so when we did IVF, we did two cycles. The first cycle, we only got one egg and I was nervous. I was like, let’s just do it again so we’ll have more. We got one again the second time, so we had two. One was a boy, one was a girl, but I didn’t want to know which one. Whichever one was first, put that one back first and then the other one. So I told [Papoose], if he behaves and doesn’t spoil the golden child like he’s planning to do, we have a good baby and he accepts my nanny stuff and all of that, maybe somewhere around 2020, we’ll do the other one.”
The couple are planning to star and debut their very own spin off reality TV show called Remy and Papoose: Meet the Mackies.
They also released a new song about their impending arrival called “The Golden Child”, a term they’ve been using to describe the baby they conceived after some struggles. They performed it on the show.
Here is the full interview part I
Rapper Remy Ma‘s husband Shamele “Papoose” Mackie could possibly be the most excited expecting celeb dad around by the looks of his social media posts about having his first child with his wife. The Love and Hip Hop star announced in July this year that she is expecting and the baby is due in December.
The “Melanin Magic” performer posted recently about giving her spouse a hard time about his ecstatic joy, meanwhile he jokes about her posing for photos in social media in a way to shield her bump.
In an adorable video, Remy Ma(real name: Reminisce Smith) performer shared on Instagram, she said that even though he was giving her grief, she felt elated to see her husband so excited about her pregnancy. This is true especially given the couple suffered a miscarriage (or maybe more) before undergoing IVF treatment to get pregnant successfully.
“I give him a hard time because if I don’t he will OD more than he already does??♀️buttttttt in all actuality, there’s no better feeling than your husband being this excited about your pregnancy,” she captioned the vid. ” We love you Daddy @papoosepapoose ?-from RemyMom & “The Golden Child”
Watch the video above to see her bump!
Fans ate up the endearing interaction
“If my man don’t act like this when I get pregnant, then I don’t want him,” one wrote, while another sweetly added, “Congratulations! Y’all love each other so much! I just love it!”
The couple announced the news of the pregnancy during a garden vow renewal ceremony.
“Oh yea…and then this happened,” Remy captioned her post, discussing her weight loss and road to motherhood. “I’ve been eating right, working out, and preparing for this for almost a year. We are so happy; thank you to everyone that prayed for us and sent blessings our way.”
Rapper Remy Ma casually announced during her lavish vow renewal with her husband Papoose (real name: Shamele Mackie) that she was expecting her first child after suffering a miscarriage, infamously referenced during her rap beef with Nicki Minaj last year.
In the caption to a photo taken by photographer Daniel J. Vasquez, the “Melanin Magic” singer, added the hashtags, “#16weeks #BabyMackie.”
The renewal ceremony itself was an intimate affair with all the guests wearing white and playing Jenga, oversized Connect Four and other lawn games at the garden event.
Papoose followed up with his own announcement by sharing his excitement:
“Y’all already know I’m on level 1 thousand! Man I almost told y’all so many times! But my wife would’ve killed me. She wanted to wait until after the first trimester!” he captioned a video from the formal portraits taken during the ceremony. “Words can’t describe my happiness. I’m just working/building on myself… So I can be the best father possible! God is good #blacklove.”
Since then, he has posted several times sweet shares about his excitement about finally becoming a father.
She has a teenage college-bound son named Jace and he has a teen daughter Dejanae, both from previous relationship.
Congrats to them both!
