The Love & Hip Hop stars welcomed a baby girl earlier this week, and have seemed to be enamored with her ever since. In her latest preview, Mena posted an adorable moment between Samuels and their daughter on Instagram. The black-and-white video shows Samuels holding their newborn as the television plays behind him. He isn’t wearing a shirt in the photo as he holds her. The baby is bundled up in a blanket and fans of the couple can only see her head full of hair.
As Samuels is rocking their daughter, she is crying loudly at the beginning of the video. The new father proceeds to calm his child down by singing Brian McKnight’s “One Last Cry” loudly to her. Laughter can be heard in the background as he sings off-key in his daughter’s face. Samuels continues to sing louder until the baby eventually stops crying. Mena wrote in her caption that the trick has worked every time for the couple as they navigate bonding with their newborn.
The adorable post was first included as part of Mena’s Instagram stories and was shared on The Shade Room’s Instagram page. The post received millions of views and more than 12,000 comments from the outlet’s followers.
“That the cutest thing ever!!! I’m crying laughing tho,” one follower said.
“He used to sing to her belly, kinda like white noise to her lol,” another fan pointed out.
“I know Nicki folding her arms in the bed with her bottom lip poked out elbowing her husband saying ‘why we can’t have a baby,”‘ another follower joked.
Samuels has seemed to be adapting well to his first time as a parent. The music producer shared several moments of his wife’s pregnancy on his own Instagram page in anticipation of their daughter. He also posted a photo of the infant for the first time earlier this week and showed himself holding her tiny hand.
“These past 24 hrs have been an adventure to say the least!! I’m a part of the #girldad club now,” Samuels wrote under the photo. “Perfection is here.”
Mena and Samuels have yet to share the name of their newborn, or an official picture of her face. The two have been transparent about their marriage and the highs and lows of Mena’s pregnancy in the past, so fans will most likely learn that information in the weeks ahead.
