Teyana Taylor gives it her all in anything she does. So, it’s no surprise that the singer, actress, dancer, director, is one of the hardest-working stars in Hollywood.
But none of her accolades come close to when she gave birth to her two daughters — Iman “Junie” Tayla Shumpert Jr., 5, and Rue Rose Shumpert, at home in her bathroom without any hospital staff. Both girls made unexpected entrances, which played an obvious part in their mom’s unplanned deliveries.
Listen, I’ll get scared going to the bathroom Teyana joked during an exclusive interview while discussing her new partnership with Olay “Right after giving birth, I was going to the bathroom and I’m like, ‘Oh, is my water going to break? Oh wait, I had my baby yesterday,’” she recalled about her second pregnancy with baby Rue, who arrived on September 6, 2020, just one day after Teyana’ s baby shower “All in all, it was amazing and a beautiful thing,” she said, adding, “It was scary at the time, but so beautiful.”
When asked about a having a potential third child with husband Iman Shumpert and Teyana said, “Girl, listen, two and done, you hear me!” She joked, “I gotta give this [vagina] a break, there’s like shoulders coming out of there, OK! I have tattoos that aren’t done. Imagine God telling you, well you’re about to have this baby, you can’t push her back in there so it’s now!”, she continued.
This has proven beyond doubts that Teyana Taylor is nothing but a strong black woman who has always represented and stood for the culture through and through.
