Singer and Doula Erykah Badu will Deliver Teyana Taylor’s Baby

Neo-soul singer and actress Erykah Badu will help deliver singer Teyana Taylor‘s second child at home.

Taylor told several media entities this week the news while promoting her new project, “The Album”, which debuted on June 19th that Badu will be there to usher in Taylor and hubby Cleveland Cavalier‘s Iman Shumpert‘s newest baby into the world.

Badu is a licensed doula with over a decade of experience and who has delivered several babies already.

Home births are nothing new for this family.

Taylor gave birth to her first child, daughter Iman Jr, on their bathroom floor with the help of dad Iman senior in 2015. The baby was crowning and arriving too fast for the couple to get Taylor to the hospital in time and had to take matters into their own hands.

We have a feeling they will be just fine this second time around.

Badu even helped deliver model Slick Woods’ baby last year.

They’re keeping it in the family. Badu is featured on the song “Low Key” on Taylor’s album which  includes a remix to the chorus of Badu’s 90s hit song, “Next Lifetime.”

Badu says she was called to become a doula in 2001 after helping deliver a friend’s baby, according to a 2011 magazine interview she gave  to PEOPLE magazine’s print edition

“I’ve always had a mothering nature. But I didn’t plan on becoming a doula. I just wanted to care for my family and friends,” she told the celebrity mag.  “When I saw the baby, I cried. I knew what I was supposed to do with my life.”

She then read up on the job, and  began offering her services for free to family and friends. She eventually became the spokeswoman for the International Center for Traditional Childbearing and later got certified with the intention to open up a chain of centers in the inner cities, the Toronto Sun reported back in 2011.

Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert are Expecting Second Child

While teasing a video from a song off her upcoming album, Teyana Taylor, revealed that she is expecting her second child.

In the final scene of the video to “Wake Up Love“, (above) the entire family is laying in an oversized bed. Her 4-year old daughter Iman Junior and husband Cleveland Cavaliers Iman Shumpert hug and kiss her belly after she reveals her adorable bump hiding underneath her white tank top.

It’s an adorable tender song that also features Shumpert Senior rapping during an interlude in the R&B song.

The “How You Want It?” singer received wide spread attention as the amazing dancer with the crazy fit body in the video for Kanye West’s song, Fade.

Shumpert Senior actually helped usher their daughter into the world in the bathroom during an emergency delivery back in 2015. Amazing! What a dad!

Taylor’s latest project is set to drop this Friday, June 19th on Juneteenth which is appropriate given her daughter’s nickname is Junie or June bug.

Congrats!

I have a new family reality TV show to watch! Your Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, dancer, recording artist and model Teyana Taylor and her husband Cleveland Cavalier’s Iman Shumpert‘s!

Teyana and Iman  on VH1 is an intimate look into newlyweds Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert’s. After Taylor hit major crossover appeal following her fabulous appearance in Kanye West‘s “Fade” music video, her career has taken off in a meteoric ways, booking modeling gigs, launching companies and now this show.

The couple redefine the contemporary notion of the modern love story. He’s from the burbs. She’s from Harlem, NY. And on the show, you get to see Taylor do her mompreneur thing while trying to make sure her daughter Iman Jr (better known as Junie) experiences all the things Taylor didn’t as a kid, like camping.

Per the show description: ” As they take on the music, sports, and fashion worlds, the success in their careers is only rivaled by their passion for one another and their daughter Junie. Teyana & Iman features plenty of red-hot moments, playful humor, and a 360-degree view of true #RelationshipGoals.”

Teyana Taylor’s ‘Fade’ Choreography Is Nominated for an MTV VMA, Revisit the Gifs and Videos


teyana-kanye

Last year at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West debuted the music video for his then- new song, “Fade“, starring our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum, Teyana Taylor.

Today, the 2017 MTV VMA nominations came out and to no surprise Taylor and her choreography team were nominated for Best Video Choreography!

I am rooting for her flash dance inspired video and moves, and her banging post-baby body to match.

In case you missed it, here are some gifs and the video to jog your memory.

In the video for Fade, outfitted in a “Flashdance” -esqe work out gear, super cropped underboob-revealing tank, high cut workout undies and knee pads, Taylor performed some pretty wickedly fierce dance moves inside an empty gym.

Yes, this is the same woman who gave birth one week and who looked like this a week later and then 6 months later this:

teyana1

Just her, dripping with hotness. The artists that perform on the record Yeezy, Ty Dolla $ign and Post Malone are nowhere to be seen. Um, not that anyone needed them.

teyana 5

The rhythmic gyrations and phenomenal choreography ended with some steamy NSFW scenes with her husband Cleveland Cavalier‘s Iman Shumpter in the shower. For those who don’t know, Taylor, is also well known among mainstream audiences for her 2007 my My Super Sweet Sixteen party which aired on MTV. And her fiance is the same dude who helped Taylor deliver their daughter in the bathtub.

The final scene ends with a close up of Taylor, only with her face looking like a puma, and she has a tail. She’s on Shumpter’s back and their daughter Iman Jr is close nearby with some sheep surrounding them all. Odd. I know. Watch the video here on Digg (if it hasn’t been taken down).

 With that video, Taylor became the official MILF and #BodyGoals for a bunch of people who will probably never look as good as she does. lol.

Teyana Taylor Got Hitched and She’s Launching A Fitness Program

jimmy-neutch-teyanataylor-%e2%80%a2-instagram-photos-and-videos

Teyana Taylor and her husband Cleveland Cavaliers player Imani Shumpert tied the knot recently and they announced the news with this adorable photo with their daughter Imani Shumpert Jr.

The trio wore burgundy leather jackets with the concluding vows on the back: “I Do,” hers read. “I Do Too” was written on his jacket and “Oh! Me Too” on the back of baby girls miniature version. It was too cute!

More recently, the “Fade” dancer and her daughter rocked the Soul Train Awards red carpet and she turned lots of heads in a sheer body hugging dress that showed off her super fit body, which was all the rage after the debut of the video for Kanye West‘s song.

My ❤️beat…

She also is finally taking advantage of all the buzz over her ridiculously hot body by launching an online fitness website that she claims is cool for pregnant women. It is called Fade2Fit.

““Everyone keeps asking me what I did to get my body,” she writes on its website. “If you want to know my secret, sign up to get more information on the upcoming dance fitness program and dance workout tour! Thank you and let’s Fade 2 Fit.”

Interesting….We’ll keep you updated~!

Teyana Taylor Breaks the VMAs, Becomes Everyone’s #BodyGoals

teyana-kanye

Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards in New York City was also about another one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who didn’t even attend the event in person. R&B singer, actress and choreographer Teyana Taylor starred in Kanye West‘s new video for his song “Fade” from his “Life of Pablo” album. He debuted the video after a 4-minute rambling speech and then she essentially broke the VMAs. (well…right before Beyonce performed and broke it again)

Yes, this is the same woman who gave birth one week and who looked like this 6 days later. So, it came as no surprise to us at Bellyitch that her body would be this hot months later.

 And enjoy these Gifs that are going around the net because, in addition to new found heightened fame to a new crop of people who were unaware of her existence and fame before, Taylor is now the official MILF and #BodyGoals for a bunch of people who will probably never look as good as she does. lol.

OMG! We loved Teyana Taylor’s Funky Maternity Style

teyana taylor style

Teyana Taylor and her fiance Cleveland Cavalier guard Iman Shumpert welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Imani Jr. on December 16. I noticed that Taylor was the baddest most fly preggers mama I have ever seen in a long while. Not since Love & Hip Hop star Rasheeda had another mom-to-be rock chic, eclectic and sporty maternity wear so well.

I really dug the military style jacket over a Hermes Paris T-shirt over military style green pants with some funky rubber bottom striped calf-length boots.



The R&B singer looked edgy hip Goth/Grunge in all black while rocking some fierce Agyness Deyn Dr. Martin Over-the-Knee Boots. Fab!




 


Finally, the long casual grey sweatshirt material coat jacket, over a tee and sweat pants with ripped knees and high tops accessorized with a dark grey neoprene bad was the business!


Overall, very fab!

Cavs NBA Player Iman Shumpert delivered his own child with fiance Teyana Taylor

More babies for Kanye West as his G.O.O.D .Music label artist, R&B singer Teyana Taylor welcomed her first child, a daughter early, this Wednesday, December 16…and she was delivered by her finance Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert!

The two have been dating since last year and Shumpert announced on his social media Instagram account that their daughter was expected to arrive on January 16, 2016.

“I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with.” Shumpert captioned a reposted photo of Taylor’s sonogram she shared on her page. “Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world (on) ‘1.16.16.’… I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family!…I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up… she’s already daddy’s little girl!!!”

But little Imani wasn’t waiting.

Taylor detailed the early arrival and bathroom birth story in a photo of the newborn cradled in Shumpert’s arms:

On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world.

She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! 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!

Eyes full of tears and barely able to speak to the emergency operator @imanshumpert tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later. She opened her eyes right away, gazed into mine and never cried!

He handed her to me wrapped in our bath towel and wiped her face for me to see what LOVE really is. She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched.

Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you. #MeetTheParents we love you baby girl?????

Wow! Congrats! The two got engaged 5 weeks ago.

And I totally missed this, but Taylor shared some pretty creative Maternity Portraits with her fans and followers in recent weeks.

Essence Features Fierce Warrior Moms in Summer Issues

Essence magazine features three fashionable mom business and fashion stars: supermodel Iman; singer Ciara, and singer and dancer Teyana Taylor and

Loving all three of their respective covers and Alicia Keys‘ (another blog Bumpwatch alum) cover from this past month.

In the magazine, Iman talks about her career and how motherhood factored into her being a makeup mogul before Rihanna came to knock it out the park with her Fenty Beauty.

“When I came on the scene, I was catering to women of all skin colors,” Iman explains. “Regardless of what hue you are, as long as you are a woman with skin of color, whether you are Asian, Latina or African, I opened that gate. And Fenty knocked the gate out.”

Taylor discusses her plans to pass on positive messages to her daughter Junie.

“I’m just teaching her early: ‘You are beautiful, you are smart, you are magic,’ ” she told the mag and added that she is hoping to show her the power of love and commitment through her relationship with husband Cleveland Cavaliers NBA star Imani Shumpert. “Love is important.”

Ciara talks about how being a wife and mom changed her life.

“I’m trying to keep getting better, make health-conscious decisions and be the best mom and wife I can be,” she says. “No matter how much success you have, I believe there’s always an opportunity to grow and learn something new. And I’m keeping my sexy up too.” Duly noted.

In this month’s cover issue, another Bumpwatch alum Alicia Keys talks about motherhood:

“Man, becoming a wife and a mother, specifically a mother, really taught me so much,” Keys reveals. “I remember clearly wanting to remove the negative energy around me quickly, and prior to that, I didn’t feel so drawn to do that for myself. But doing it for this new soul made sense to me.”

Her issue is on stands now so you can read the rest of her interview.

Proud. Thank you for having me @Essence. ❤️
