We don’t get to see the softer side of Erica Mena very often, from her bad-girl behavior on popular reality series Love and Hip Hop: New Yorkto rumors of who she is or isn’t currently dating, but the newly engaged starlet just warmed our hearts with the most touching message to her eight-year-old son, King.
Upon sharing an image, with fans on her Instagram profile, where she embraces her young son, she expresses the joys and fears of watching him grow up.
Ok King Eight is Enough!
Anytime you want to stop growing and remain just as sweet, innocent and full of joy as you are right now, I’m game.
You are kind.
You are so very smart.You are generous with your time and love.You work hard and play hard.You are funny, silly, goofy and lovable – all things that make you….well, YOU.
These are all traits I wish for you as you grow older. My goal has always been to raise a kind, generous, hard-working, play-loving boy….and to guide him to being the very same kind of young man and then adult. You are making my job as your mother so easy.
I’ve noticed you growing up a little bit more lately…. you drop my hand when you see a team of girls walking by….unwilling to be the ‘little boy’ holding his mom’s hand in front of girls. I know it will happen eventually, but I feel it in my heart. And though you tell me you will always be my ‘baby’, I can see the baby slipping away by the day, being replaced by a boy with a heart and mind of his own. I am raising you for these moments, but I confess to knowing I will miss the ‘little’ you. Thanks @missrobinv for this shot …
Mena also recently unveiled her engagement photos with fiance, rapper and actor Shad Moss (Bow Wow) just days ago.
