Fly News: Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert Welcome Their First Child


Teyana Taylor gave birth to her and NBA’s Iman Shumpert’s first child yesterday morning. With a birth story that sounds more like part of a Hollywood movie plot than real life, Teyana confessed in an Instagram post she wasn’t even aware she was in labor, that is until she felt her head while using the bathroom.

Taylor went on to detail the rest of the relatively easy birth. With Iman, stepping in as doctor, he delivered their daughter Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. and then proceeded to tie the umbilical cord with a pair of headphones. The ambulance arrived shortly after.

Their little bundle of joy made it just in time for Christmas in the most memorable way possible. You can check out the first photo of little Iman Jr. and the entire birth story below. Congratulations to the family.

“On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world. 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! Eyes full of tears and barely able to speak to the emergency operator @imanshumpert tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later. 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. #MeetTheParents we love you baby girl”
