Talk about a jack of all trades! NBA star Iman Shumpert and his fiancée got quite the surprise when their daughter decided to come three weeks earlier than expected. Not only did he deliver his own baby in a bathroom, but he used his headphones to tie up her umbilical cord. Wow — congrats champ!
Cleveland Cavaliers star, Iman Shumpert and Teyana Taylor have welcomed their precious little baby girl, but all didn’t go according to plan. On Dec. 16, Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., made her grand entrance — about three weeks before the expected due date of Jan. 16, 2016.
Teyana shared the news via Instagram on Dec. 17, but this wasn’t an ordinary announcement. She stated that her daughter came early and she and Iman had to take matters into their own hands — literally. The Cavs star delivered his own daughter in a bathroom! Amazing. The post read as followed: “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.”
Teyana’s post continued to say, ” 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.” So insane, but truly amazing!
Iman previously announced the pregnancy with a very long post alongside a photo of their baby’s sonogram picture. He captioned the snap, “When a man loves a woman how she was born to be loved…procreation is the best blessing you can receive! I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with. Iman Taylor Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world “1.16.16.”
He added, “We want that world to be as pure as possible for her. We people, show the world what we feel the world should see when we want them to see it…something this beautiful had to be announced when we were ready for everyone to know…this is what happiness grows into! I love you@teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family! P.s. I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up…😂😂…she’s already daddy’s little girl!!!
