After six months of dating, Shad Moss (formerly Bow Wow) and “Love & Hip Hop” reality star Erica Mena are officially engaged! Congrats should be in order, but we’re having a hard time actually believing this is anything more than a huge publicity stunt. Then again, it is Shad Moss we’re talking about–he lives to date a video girl.
Shad called in to “106 & Park” to confirm engagement news and dispel rumors that the proposal was a stunt. Contrary to belief, Shad says he’s known Erica since his “Fresh Az I’m Iz” days when she appeared in his video.
“I did this out of love,” Shad revealed during a phone interview with “106 & Park” co-host Keshia Chante. “I’ve never been the type of person to do things for publicity.” Sure.
While Shad wouldn’t reveal how he proposed, Erica spilled the beans in an interview with Be100, “It was at home, and it was just us. Real intimate, by the pool. yeah, it was just us. He did all the talking. He’s really an amazing man. There’s so much depth to him. I couldn’t stop crying. When it happened, I didn’t even see the ring and I was blown away. So when I saw the ring, it was another ten minutes of non-stop crying.”
