The singer and her basketball beau welcomed their first child together in an unexpected home delivery.
Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert welcomed their new bundle of joy in the most uncoventional way. Taylor took to Instagram to share how Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr came into the world.
“On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world,” the singer wrote. “She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her head…it took two ten count pushes with my fiancé playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands!”
Shumpert was guided by an emergency operator to deliver the baby safely and medical personnel arrived on the scene shortly thereafter.
“She opened her eyes right away, gazed into mine and never cried! He handed her to me wrapped in our bath towel and wiped her face for me to see what LOVE really is. She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched. Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you.”
Baby Shumpert’s official due date wasn’t until the new year.
Congratulations to the family of three!
