The soulful singer and Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard welcomed their first child this past Wednesday. Officially named Iman Tayla Shumpert, Jr., Teyana hit Instagram with the tale of her surprise delivery, as well as the first photo of Baby “Junie:”
“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!”
The new mom continues:
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.
What a fairytale delivery. Little Junie was originally due in the new year on January 16th, but obviously her parents are ecstatic about her early arrival.
According to a source who spoke to E! Online: “She was born extremely healthy and absolutely beautiful, coming in at 35 weeks and 4 days, weighing 6lbs. 7oz. and 19.5 inches.”
Welcome, Baby Junie. We already adore you!
