Early Arrival

The lovely story behind this baby's birth has captured the internet's heart

“On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world.”

TEYANA TAYLOR IS an R&B singer signed to Kanye West’s music label. Her boyfriend, Iman Shumpert, is a basketball player with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In September, they announced they were expecting their first child together in January.

But yesterday their daughter decided to arrive one month early in a pretty spectacular fashion.

“On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world,” Taylor wrote on Instagram. “She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone.”

Taylor then explained how she gave birth in her bathroom with the help of her boyfriend… and a pair of headphones.

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 @imanshumperttied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance madethere (sic) 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.

The couple decided to name the baby girl after her father and welcomed her to the world with this message.

Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you.

Ah here, who’s chopping onions?
