NBA player delivers fiancee’s baby in their bathroom

That appears to be a baby being held by someone in a kitchen.
That appears to be a baby being held by someone in a kitchen.

On Thursday, Cleveland.com reported that Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert would miss that night’s game with a groin injury.

A few hours later, Shumpert’s fiancee, singer Teyana Taylor, posted a picture of the couple’s daughter on Instagram and said Shumpert delivered the baby on Wednesday in their bathroom.

That's kind of a bigger deal, right?

“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!” Taylor wrote.

Taylor also wrote that Shumpert “tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later.”

You can read all about it the birth of Junie:

I’ll just say this: If the the Cavaliers need a basket at the end of a game, get the ball to Shumpert. He apparently can handle the pressure.
