Shad Moss, popularly known as Bow Wow, and VH1 reality star, Erica Mena, 28, have released their pre-wedding photos.
The pair who are getting ready to walk down the aisle shared the photos exclusively with People Magazine.
The 27-year-old rapper and CSI: Cyber actor proposed to Mena in September 2014, with a 20 carat solitaire diamond ring designed by celebrity jeweler, Elliot Avianne, after just six months of dating.
“I’ve known Erica a long, long time,” Moss told People.
“She’s very smart, silly, knows how to hustle. And she’s electrifying. Anytime you have all of that in a woman, what more could you want?”
Their relationship has faced a lot of criticism after it went public, because Mena had just got out of a relationship with her female Love & Hip Hop co-star, Cyn Santana.
Mena has a son (named King), and Moss also has a 3-year-old daughter, Shia, from a previous relationship. “I wanted to be a better man than my father was,” says Moss. “This relationship has definitely changed me as a person.”
Speaking on his decision to get married, Moss says: “The player life is cool, but I don’t want it to define me.
I’ve done it all, but being on the road, the groupies, you get burnt out.”
While on a break from filming CSI, Moss is focusing on wedding planning and whatever Mena wants.
“I let her spearhead the engagement pictures,” Moss said in reference to their desert shoot in Apple Valley, California, on February 6, 2015. “They say it’s best to just say ‘yea’ to everything!”
