"I Wish It Could Be Easier"

Erica Mena and Safaree’s kids are winning the Internet with their holiday photos. The youngsters were captured in the cutest light by professional photographers whom mom and dad hired for the season.


One photo segment featured Safire and Legend rocking apparel meant for the kitchen. The youngsters were surrounded by cookware. Safire got her hands dirty while Legend leaned forward while relaxing on his stomach for the perfect photo.

“Maje in the kitchen going crazy with the gingerbread man,” Safaree told his social media fans. “I Love them with all my heart,” the celebrity dad said. “I wish it could be easier,” the recording artist admitted.

It was during a recent episode of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta (LHHATL) that Safaree and Erica Mena had a meaningful conversation that led to him apologizing for his behavior these past few months.

“I just need time apart until I figure things out for ourselves, individually,” Erica told her estranged husband. “In the end, we have two babies who are meant to be here,” Mena continued. “We can’t fail them. Do you know what I’m saying? And that’s why I said maybe let’s take the relationship off the table and let’s just focus on being parents and how we’re going to do this.”

Safaree did not want to accept the reality of the marriage coming to an end. “I feel like I don’t want to lose you,” the celebrity told his wife during the heart-to-heart moment. Safaree and Erica’s conversation ended with him giving an apology that was nothing short of a tear-jerker. “Sorry for everything I’ve done to hurt you,” Safaree told Erica through sobs. The two were in the middle of a beautiful embrace that gave Erica hope that, perhaps, she and her estranged husband could be good friends in the future.

Legend is Erica Mena and Safaree’s youngest child. Safire, the couple’s daughter, celebrated her first birthday earlier this year.
