Bow Wow (@smoss @iamErica_Mena) and Eric Mena have taken their relationship to the next level. Bow Wow or Shad Moss, whichever he’s going by these days, popped the question his girlfriend Erica Mena who accepted his ring that was shared on Instagram. While on the red carpet for BET’s Hip Hop Awards, Mena confirmed Bow Wow as her fiance. Why do I have a feeling this has to do with a set up for the next Love & Hip Hop New York season?

The couple has co-hosted “106 & Park” together and Mena has starred in music videos including Chris Brown’s “Yo (Excuse Me Miss)” and Fabolous’ “Breathe.”

Bow Wow, whose previous girlfriends have included Ciara and Angela Simmons, has a three-and-a-half-year-old daughter with Joie Chavis. Mena has a son of her own.

Congrats to the couple on their engagement!

Bow, 27, and Mena, 26, met on set of the video for his 2006 single “Fresh Azimiz.” “I’ve been knowing her since then and she was supposed to do Lottery Ticket,” he said. “It was the Pisces-Scorpio connect thing. It just happened. If you meet somebody like that and the bond is right, then you gotta go ahead and make it do what it do.”

He assured the public that their relationship is real. “It’s far from a publicity stunt. I’ve never been the type of person to do anything for publicity. I don’t need it. I’m on TV every day. I did this out of my heart, I did this out of love.”

While some have been skeptical about their relationship, Bow said it’s the real deal. “It’s something that’s gonna be here for a long time. This real,” he said.

They have not set a wedding date, but don’t plan to wait too long. “We ain’t gonna wait two, three, four, five years. We gon’ move at Godspeed.”

His fiancée called into Hot 97 on Monday to dish about her engagement. “I’m doing things different with this one,” said Mena, who previously dated female model Cyn Santana. “I’m perfecting this one more than ever.”
