Love and happiness lead the way as Teyana Taylor balances a singing career with motherhood. The recording artist tells SELF the inside secrets to parenting and fitness.

“You’re gonna have a little sag down there, and there’s nothing wrong with a little sag,” the star mom tells the magazine. “I think today, we forget what real beauty is,” Teyana adds.


“I appreciate it because this sag is from me birthing and feeding my child, my seed that is a part of me. I appreciate every stretch mark, every sag. One boob is bigger than the other…but it is what it is. I love my body and I love the place that I’m in. And I think dance and happiness and movement and family and love is what makes me love my body.”

Motherhood has done a lot for Teyana in the field of motivation and determination. “Everything and anything is possible if you put your mind to it, and I get that from my daughter. Nothing is impossible to her,” Taylor shares.

“This is who I do it for now,” the celebrity mom says of her career in show business. “This is not about me anymore. So my grind is different, my hustle is different.”

Teyana Taylor and husband Iman Shumpert welcomed their daughter, Iman Tayla, on December 16, 2015. The little one is the couple’s first child.
