An NBA player just delivered his own baby in his bathroom, and of course there's an Instagram photo.
Even if you're not a sports fan, you have to admit that NBA players have incredible athleticism and talent... at delivering babies. Iman Shumpert, a shooting guard and small forward for the Cleveland Caveliers, had to deal with the surprise task of helping his baby into this world yesterday, and it seems like he actually did quite the satisfactory job. And as per tradition, the entire ordeal was documented in an Instagram post.
Shumpert's fiancé, singer Teyana Taylor, didn't realize she was in labor until—in what sounds like an urban legend that teenagers tell each other in sex ed—she felt the baby's head starting to come out. No!!!
Taylor explained that Shumpert ended up "playing Dr" while getting instructions from a 9-1-1 operator. He delivered the baby in the couple's bathroom, then tied off the umbilical cord with a pair of headphones. Another important reason not to leave your earbuds in any taxis: you might need them to deliver a baby.
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💂🏾🐞👶🏾
