#Repost @imanshumpert ・・・ I've never held a woman on a pedestal quite like this before. I've never appreciated everything about a person so much. As we grow together you've taught me more about myself than I ever knew. You have changed my life forever. You have made a house a home. You have carried the next generation. And you have proven to me that love is real and genuine. I know you can't drink while you're pregnant...and you'll probably pass out after dinner and not make it to the club lol. But I'm screaming HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you while you're in Chicago! You need anything while you're there you know I got you...that's kind of my neck of the woods. 👀 Smile on your special day sweetheart...you make every woman want to wear 25 just like you! 💂🏾😍🐞---- I love you babyyyyyy 😥😘😘😘😘

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💂🏾🐞👶🏾

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

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