The nuptial preparations for beloved child star Shad Moss and reality TV princess Erica Mena are under way, and accordingly, the couple is flaunting their love for the world to see.

In a new spread for People magazine, the lovebirds pose for their engagement pictures. Erica’s famous curves are on full display in a floor-length white dress paired, of course, with her huge 20-carat rock. The rapper is dapper in a classic white shirt and black pants, topped off with a bow tie.

It seems as though Erica already teased the pics and we didn’t even know it. On Valentine’s Day, the soon-to-be Mrs. Moss posted the above with the simple caption, “Happy Valentine’s Day.”

Shad also opened up about his love for the no-nonsense New Yorker, stating:

“We noticed we had a lot in common and just took it day by day. You know how it goes, you text one day, then start texting every day,” says Moss of their modern-day romance. “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?”

Proving he’s left his wild days behind, Shad continues:

“The player life is cool, but I don’t want it to define me,” he says. “I’ve done it all, but being on the road, the groupies, you get burnt out.”

The former 106 & Park host also opened up about how his daughter, 3-year-old Shai Moss, has turned him into a family man:

“I wanted to be a better man than my father was,” says Moss. “This relationship has definitely changed me as a person.”

And like any other husband-to-be, Shad is learning that a happy wife means a happy life:

“I let her spearhead the engagement pictures,” Moss says of their desert shoot in Apple Valley, California, on Feb. 6. “They say it’s best to just say ‘yea’ to everything!”

Nonetheless, the artist formerly known as Bow Wow looks forward to having a great life with Erica:

“I’ve got images in my head of how it will be,” says Moss. “I’m excited … What we have is real genuine.”

We can’t wait to see the wedding pics next.
