The “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star Erica Mena cannot resist gushing about her lovely daughter this Christmas season, only a month after she officially introduced the baby on social media.


33-year-old television personality Erica Mena put her Christmas spirit on display with a sensual staged photo of herself wearing festive and revealing pajamas next to a Christmas tree early in December 2020.

But more recently, it was the turn for Mena’s ten-month-old daughter Safire, shared with her husband, 39-year-old rapper Safaree Samuels, to show a Christmas version of herself, and it couldn’t be any more adorable.

On December 12, Mena took to her Instagram feed to share a short clip of Safire taking a bath in an oversized cup filled with what looks like marshmallows and chocolate with Buddy Castle’s “The Cuppycake Song” as a soundtrack.

Safire can be seen playing with the floating marshmallows while wearing a cute baby hat. The setting was completed with an oversized straw in white and red, reminding us of the candy canes typical from the season.


As Mena pointed out in the post’s caption, this will be Safire’s first Christmas, since she was only born in February. This is probably why Mena had her surrounded by a heavily Christmas-decorated background. She also wrote:

“You’re my honey bun sugar plum♥️”


Mena’s numerous fans and followers in the social network were captivated by the heartwarming Christmas postcard, and many took to the comments section of the post to express it.

“Very creative! I have yet to see a baby in a cup of hot chocolate! Love it!” wrote a user. “It’s the foot hanging out the cup for me… adorable,” another user wrote. “I caaaaan’t even take her, how precious,” a third user added.


The fan-favorite Christmas post featuring Mena’s daughter came a little more than a month after the “Love & Hip Hop” star shared the first photos of Safire on social media.

On November 4, Mena shared a couple of snapshots on which the world finally could appreciate the beauty of Safire’s face for the first time, with the then-9-month-old wearing an animal print onesie with a matching headband and ribbon.


“The BEST part of 2020. My Safire Majesty,” a grateful and proud Mena captioned the post, which was greatly received among her fans and followers, who now can’t get enough of Safire’s pictures.

More recently, on November 17, Safire’s father Safaree documented an important milestone for his daughter, sharing a video of Safire taking her first stepsnaround the household.

Safire even has her own namesake account on Instagram, presumably administered by her parents, and it already amasses an impressive 79,000 followers.
