Iman Shumpert has had quite the eventful few days.
The Cleveland Cavaliers guard finally returned to the court last Friday after missing the team’s first 21 games with a wrist injury. On Wednesday morning, Shumpert’s fiancée, Teyana Taylor, gave birth to the couple’s baby girl, terrifically named Iman Shumpert Jr.
But apparently the big moment wasn’t without some drama.
Taylor, who documented the event in an Instagram post, said she didn’t realize she was in labor until she could feel her baby’s head. She then delivered the baby in her own bathroom, with Shumpert assisting by tying a pair of red headphones around the newborn’s umbilical cord until an ambulance arrived.
This is a pretty incredible moment, but that part about the headphones is going to be an awesome story to tell their daughter one day.
