"This Photo He Approved"

Erica Mena has been careful to keep her son, King Conde, off social media and for good reason. The Love and Hip Hop: New York (LHHNY) star’s son hates social media.

“I always tell him the world doesn’t deserve to know how incredible he is,” Erica recently shared. “Especially when he shuts down me taking photos of him,” the LHHNY star added. “[My son] hates social media so he is always like, ‘Mom you better not post me.’ This photo he approved.”


The photo that King approved was one of him with his mom on her wedding day. The teen and his mom had a special moment with one another in the candid. King and Erica rubbed noses in the photo just as the two did while walking down the aisle at Erica’s wedding.

Attendees could not hold back the tears as Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels exchanged marriage vows during a recent episode of Love and Hip Hop: New York. The words that Erica and Safaree spoke to each other were so genuine that even Joe Budden shed a few tears. She promised him that he would never walk alone again. He thanked her for taking him seriously.

“You love someone when you can wipe off snot from their nose,” one fan said in reference to Safaree wiping tears from his wife’s face. “God bless them.” Indeed!

Erica Mena and Safaree are expecting their first child, a baby girl, to arrive in the coming days.
