What A Cool Choice For A Midwife!

Erykah Badu will deliver pregnant Teyana Taylor’s baby. The ‘We Got Love’ singer shared the exciting news during a recent interview with Nick Cannon Radio on Power 106.

“I’m considering home birth and I’m actually gonna be doing it with Erykah [Badu],” Teyana revealed. “You know, I feel like if I did it once without any type of warning, I could do it this time fully prepared. Giving birth like that was scary but it was such a powerful thing.”


Teyana Taylor gave birth to her daughter, Iman “Junie Bug” Shumpert Jr., in the bathroom of her home. Junie’s arrival came with little warning as Teyana was on the phone with her mother the moment her water broke.

Taylor’s husband, Iman Shumpert Sr., was also taken aback as he had to use the guidance of a 911 operator to deliver his daughter. Teyana and Iman held their wedding ceremony in their home’s bathroom months later as a symbol of where their baby girl’s life outside of the womb began.

Junie Bug remains the vibrant member of the family who lights up every room she enters. Now, the youngster must prepare for the role of big sister.

“You have kids that are a little bit jealous. But she’s so excited and preparing herself to be a big sister,” Teyana Taylor explained during her recent interview with The Breakfast Club.

“She constantly kisses my stomach, she constantly talks to the baby,” the celebrity mom explained. “Even when we go to the store, she’s like, ‘Okay, mom, this is for the baby.’ She’s so ready. She’s going to be such a great big sister.”

Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert are expecting their second child to arrive in the coming months. Stay tuned for more celebrity pregnancy news!
