Happy Birthday, Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr! The daughter of Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert turned four years old yesterday.
Taylor took to her Instagram on Monday to wish her mini me a ‘Happy Birthday’. She wrote, “When I look into your eyes I don’t just see you, I see my everything, my today, my tomorrow, my future and my rock for the rest of my life… I swear I’m the luckiest woman in the whole wide world, I love you bug @babyjunie4 happy 4th bday my sweet darling, mommy’s big girl.”
Iman followed with his own sweet post. The basketball player shared an adorable video of his namesake with the caption, “You won’t stop growing @babyjunie4 You’re 4 today which means you’re starting to be able to pick out words in this paragraph…soon I’ll have to write it in cursive. Always remember…you got back up, they don’t. Fear nothing, respect all. Smile often, life is beautiful ❤️ daddy love you.”
Teyana and Iman welcomed their daughter on December 16, 2015 in a surprising home birth.
Shortly after giving birth to her first child, Taylor took to Instagram to describe the experience. She wrote, “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!”
She continued, “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.”
The Shumperts married in October 2016 shortly after their baby girl came into the world.
