This is insane! Iman Shumpert’s panicked call to 911 when he was forced to deliver his own baby at home has been released. And you can click through to hear the whole thing! How scary!
Cleveland Cavs star Iman Shumpert‘s frantic call to 911 when he delivered his own baby on December 16 is incredibly frightening, for Iman, fiancée Teyana Taylor, and the 911 operator who helped him deliver his daughter. You have to hear it to believe it. Click through to hear Iman talk to 911 about this unimaginable situation!
You can hear the fear in Iman’s voice as he calls up 911 and yells “Oh god, she’s having the baby.” Teyana’s screams can be heard in the background. Thinking about how much giving birth hurts to begin with, we can’t imagine what she’s going through. The 911 operator urges Iman to come closer to the phone so he can hear what’s going on and send someone to help. Iman’s a little busy though…he’s already holding his daughter, now named Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., in his hands! Oh my god!
The 911 asks Iman some important questions: if Teyana is breathing, if the baby is breathing, and so on. It’s so heartbreaking; Iman’s voice breaks as he answers, crying audibly as he tends to his family. He must have been so scared. Thankfully, they were both fine. The baby was born three weeks before Teyana’s due date (January 16, 2016), so she was full term — very important!
At this point, the 911 operator instructs Iman on what to do to keep the baby safe, like cleaning off her mouth and wrapping her in a towel. “You’re doing good,” the operator says. “Is it a boy or a girl? Congratulations!” Luckily, the ambulance got there five minutes later and whisked them all away to a hospital! Poor Iman and Teyana.
Tayla’s birth, and the incredible way she came into the world, was first announced by Teyana in an Instagram post on December 17: “On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world…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.”
