The Heartwarming Gender Reveal

At the party, there were several props pertaining to both genders, such as blue and pink telephone booths. Of course, the lavish party's highlight was when hot pink fireworks lit up the sky, signaling that they were about to have a baby girl. 


When it was finally revealed that they were about to have a baby girl, Mrs. Samuels couldn't help but tear up as she savored the special moment with her husband. The two jumped for joy, embracing one another as they looked at the sky in awe. 


The Excitement of a First-Time Dad

A couple of days prior to their gender reveal party, the pair got married after being engaged for almost 10 months.

They tied the knot at Legacy Castle in New Jersey, where before the ceremony, Safaree was gifted with a gold and diamond necklace that read "daddy" from his wife and unborn child. 


Clearly excited to become a father, Samuels shared with the world the first glimpse at their unborn daughter through a sonogram. He even made sure to share that it seems his daughter got the shape of his head in the process.

"Can you believe it??? Praise God... #Myhead"


Awaiting Baby Girl Samuels' Arrival

However, while fans are excited to see more about their daughter, the proud parents-to-be shared that they will be selective about what they share to the public in hopes of respecting their daughter's privacy. After all, both Safaree and Erica are always in the spotlight and this might not be good for their child. 

With Erica's due date drawing near, their recent gender reveal party is a foreshadowing of all the love and care their little daughter is going to get, especially with her parents already ecstatic and overjoyed with how their pregnancy journey is going.
