Erica Mena's daughter, Safire, celebrated her first birthday on February 2 with a fairytale quarantine birthday party. The "LHHNY" star poured her heart out in a sweet tribute to the adorable toddler.


It's already been a year since "Love & Hip Hop: New York" stars Erica Mena and her husband Safaree Samuels welcomed their baby girl, Safire Majesty Samuels.

The reality TV couple was thrilled to celebrate Safire's first milestone and doting mom Mena took to Instagram to share some awesome birthday photos along with a heartfelt message.

Mena made sure her only daughter's birthday party would be unique by arranging a beautifully decorated garden tea party with a stunning white "magical unicorn."

Safire looked like a princess in a baby pink halter dress with pretty frills and a flower headband to match. She and the decorated horse were pictured outdoors with a water feature in the background.


An emotional Mena also shared another trio of photos of Safire. This time, the toddler rocked a white lacey onesie with feathery details on the waistline and shoulders and a matching headband.


Safire looked sweet as she played with her birthday cake, smearing it all over her face. In another snap, she was pictured playing with a pearl necklace while seated on a white child-sized sofa.


Along with these photos, Mena opened up about the joys of motherhood and how Safire changed her life for the better last year. She also detailed the many lessons she'd learned over the past twelve months.

The actress and singer recalled how Safire learned to breastfeed, sleep through the night, and crawl and walk, inspiring a change in her own outlook on life. She summarized:

"This year you learned and grew so much. I learned just what we could achieve together as mommy and daughter in one simple year. "


Mena ended her tribute by revealing that she always prayed for a baby girl, and it's easy to see why she and Samuels are so obsessed with their adorable baby girl. In all her pictures, Safire is like a beam of sunshine with her big eyes and baby cheeks.

Of course, fans didn't get to appreciate the beautiful baby until nine months after her birth when the former video vixen shared the first pics publicly on her Instagram account.

Previous photos had only shown glimpses of Safire, but amid speculation that there was trouble in paradise, Mena finally revealed the baby girl's face to the delight of her curious fans.

The divorce rumors were sparked by Samuels' Instagram post where he claimed he would be ending 2020 as a single man and dramatically tagged the TV show "Divorce Court" in the pic.
