The pair announced the engagement at the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards when red carpet personality Young Jack Thriller asked if Bow Wow was Mena's boyfriend. She offered a little coy reply of "he's actually my fiancé" before displaying the bling.
Later, the two posted identical photos on their Instagram accounts after thanking fans for all the well wishes.
E! Online notes the couple met on 106 & Park when Mena stopped by to promote her show and Moss hosts. Sharing a kiss on the couch and six month later: boom. The news has taken everyone by surprise since no one had an idea the two were dating seriously.
Both Mena and Moss's love lives have been ground in the gossip mill for years. The rapper's love life has been in question since he hit the scene in 2000 and performing with Snoop Dogg, who noticed the talented kid in 1993. Dogg gave Moss the moniker Lil' Bow Wow and a star was born.
Meanwhile, Erica Mena's been staring on VH1's Love and Hip Hop since season 2 when she was recurring and bumped up to star in Season 3. The almost 27-year-old's been a video girl in 50 Cent's "Candy Shop" and Chris Brown’s “Excuse me Miss" as well being discovered on 2009's Kourtney & Khloe: Take Miami.
Earlier this year, Erica was seen with Cyn Santana. An in early August, Sister 2 Sister magazine wondered if the couple were still together. Or together at all since the rumors said it was all a ploy for extra airtime in a crowded genre. Her ex- and LLH costar Rich Dollaz predicted the couple wouldn't last.
Well, any lingering doubts are gone now. Shad and Erica have been obvious on social media, making it clear they were happy together. Even if social media fans are a little bit doubtful.

Shad spoke to the magazine, saying that "the girlfriend slot" was filled. Better be rewording the term in a couple months. Girlfriend isn't interchangeable with fiancée or wife. Of course, there's also the question if he's going to appear on Love and Hip Hop this season.
