Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels are calling it quits after a year and a half of marriage.

Mena, 33, filed for divorce from Samuels, 39, on Friday in Georgia's Fayette County Superior Court, TMZ, PageSix, and Entertainment Tonight reported Tuesday.

The Love & Hip Hop stars secretly got married in October 2019, and share a 15-month-old daughter together, Safire. Mena is also pregnant with their second child together, an announcement she and Samuels made just earlier this month.

According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Mena says her marriage to Samuel is "irretrievably broken" with "no hope of reconciliation."

She is asking for joint legal custody and final decision-making authority, Entertainment Tonight reports, and requests physical custody of Safire on a temporary and permanent basis "with the parties having parenting time as determined in the minor children's best interests."

In addition, Mena asks Samuels to pay her legal fees, child support, and for sole use of their home in Georgia, TMZ reports.

A rep for Mena did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment, and a rep for Samuels could not immediately be identified.
