Nights at Chuck E. Cheese involve competition, pizza, and throwing things according to Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert. The celebrity couple tells GQ magazine that their fierce spirits take center stage while little Iman Tayla lets loose on other kids.

“Junie’s going to eat more pizza than us [at Chuck E. Chesse],” Iman reveals. “She is going to throw stuff. She’s going to go to other people’s tables and try to take stuff. She’s going to try to scratch other kids. As soon as she gets home, she just passes out because she has exerted way too much energy, doing whatever she’s doing. But she loves it.”


Iman and his wife, Teyana, also love the children’s center and get a special thrill out of the games. “It’s really us against the world because the games at Chuck E. Cheese’s, there’s nothing to play each other against,” Teyana reveals. “It’s really more me and him versus the game. Trust me, we beat them. We be like, nah, nah, and we’ll just keep playing them until we get mad tickets.”

Teyana can see attributes of herself in her daughter as well as characteristics of her husband. “She eats, sleeps just like Iman. Same pose,” Teyana shares. “She’s like me as far as the curious parts. I’m like Curious George. My friends call me Jimmy Neutron. I’m always into gadgets and different stuff.”

Teyana and Iman are also into fashion but always get eclipsed by their daughter who is constantly gifted with the latest brands from family and friends. “She got the juice,” Teyana reveals. “I mean people send her clothes left and right. ‘Where is Junie?’ ‘How is Junie?’ They don’t care about us.”
