If you were looking for a good cry today well here it is. Teyana Taylor is celebrating her baby, Junie's, birthday today and used Instagram to share an incredibly sweet message. The 28-year old mother posted a video that highlights all of baby Junies moments throughout her 3 years in the world. In the video, audio of a 911 call plays as emotional husband and NBA player Iman Shumpert is instructed on how to deliver the baby himself.
Teyana captions the touching post writing:
"Wow this 911 call gets me in feelings every time 😩😢 If I had to choose between breathing and loving you I would use my last breath to tell you I love you. Y💜U are my EVERYTHING. & mommy loves you so much @babyjunie4 happy 3rd bday baby 😢😢😩💕💕💕💕💕😍😍😍"
The "Gonna Love me," singer definitely did not plan on having a natural childbirth. The original plan was to get to a hospital and utilize pain medication while being surrounded by family.
“My water broke on the toilet,” she said. “As soon as my mom said, ‘Does she have any discharge? Did the water break?’ I swear to God two seconds later, it broke. I got so scared because I just knew, I’m one of them type of n—– I was getting an epidural, I was gon have Monica sing to me — that’s Junie’s godmother — nana gon come pray. We had this all planned out.”
Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned for the couple. Due to being with Iman Shumpert of the Sacramento Kings for an away game in snowy Boston, the couple had to quickly improvise.
“[It was a] ‘I didn’t have a choice childbirth,’ that’s what that was,” Taylor told “The Breakfast Club” during an interview detailing her unplanned natural home birth. “Junie was a month early.”
There's no word yet on if the young couple plan to revive their VH1 reality tv show, Teyana & Iman. The show, which debuted in March 2018 gave fans an inside look at a modern love story between an industry couple navigating the daily trials of life while sharing an immense bond. Although no official word from VH1, gossip blog, The Jasmine Brand, has mentioned that the couple will be back for season 2 and filming is already underway.
The good news comes on the heels of a very successful year for Teyana, the Kanye West protégé who recently released her sophomore album, K.T.S.E..
