Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert’s daughter born in bathroom, second time for couple

They could get used to this.

For the second time, also by surprise, R&B star Teyana Taylor delivered a baby in the bathroom at her home with husband Iman Shumpert, a longtime NBA player.

“At 3:28 am on Sept 6th 2020 Rue Rose decided that the baby shower thrown for her and mommy was too lit,” the proud papa wrote on Instagram Monday. “She didn’t make the party but she managed to make the next day her birthdate!!!”

Fittingly it was Labor Day weekend when Taylor went into labor, as unexpectedly as the first time, when she gave birth to daughter Tayla Shumpert Jr., nicknamed “Junie,” in 2015.

Back then Shumpert was caught off guard, and the 911 dispatcher talked the emotional father through the delivery. This time he was an old hand of sorts. He also has a new respect for what may just be the most important room in the house.

“Now…when we buy homes, we always find a bathroom with great energy,” Shumpert wrote on Instagram. “But not in a million years would you be able to tell me we’d deliver both of our daughters in a bathroom without the assistance of a hospital!”

Taylor had announced her pregnancy in her “Wake Up Love” video, featuring Shumpert and Junie, in June, reported CNN.

Shumpert, who once played for the Knicks and last year was with the Nets, was ebullient and not a little bemused by the second bathroom miracle.

“Our newest edition entered the world in the water and came out looking around and ready to explore!” he wrote. “A healthy child. A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins….again. Welcome babygirl…we love you!”

“At 3:28 am on Sept 6th 2020,” Shumpert, who also treated fans with two special videos of their resting newborn, gushed. “[She] decided that the baby shower thrown for her and mommy was too lit. She didn’t make the party but she managed to make the next day her birthdate!!!”

The baby was born in the bathroom of the family’s home, Shumpert said, remarking how both of their children were born “in a bathroom without the assistance of a hospital!”

This is the couple’s second daughter. The Brooklyn Nets star went on to celebrate being a true girl dad, “A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins. Welcome babygirl…we love you!”

According to a 2016 report from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, there are approximately 35,000 home births in the U.S. each year, though leading medical associations maintain that giving birth in a hospital setting is a safer choice. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American College of Nurse-Midwives, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine issued a joint statement in March that even during the COVID-19 pandemic, “hospitals and birth centers that are both licensed and accredited remain safe places to give birth in the United States.” Still, they also acknowledge any woman’s right to decide where she delivers. This policy is upheld by these organizations today.

Taylor, 29, and Shumpert also share their child, Iman “Junie” Tayla, who was born in 2015.
