The 25-year-old singer/actress and her fiancé, NBA player Iman Shumpert, were expecting a child — but not for the next three weeks. Apparently, Teyana had no idea she was in labor until the baby began to crown (WTF and yikes). But the couple managed to keep their cool, and with the help of an emergency operator, the proud papa delivered his daughter in the bathroom of their home.
Afterwards, Teyana took to Instagram to share the first photo of their baby girl, Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., resting comfortably in her father's arms. She captioned the photo with a detailed account of the unexpected turn of events.
"On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world," Teyana wrote. "She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her head."
Tying headphones around the umbilical cord? With her father's quick thinking and her quick arrival, we fully expect baby Iman to hit the ground running.
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💂🏾🐞👶🏾
Congrats Teyana and Iman!
