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.

Celeb Parents at NBA’s All Star Weekend

This past weekend was a busy one with the BAFTA Awards, the Black Panther movie opening and the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend.

A couple of our current Bellyitch Bumpwatch mamas showed up and out including third-time mom-to-be Ayesha Curry who rooted on her husband Goldenstate Warriors star player Steph Curry as he lead Team Curry. They lost to our Bellyitch alum Savannah Brinson James‘ husband LeBron James team but that didn’t stop Ayesha from bigging up her man in an instgram post.

W my love celebrating last night. So proud of you,” the cook book author captioned a photo of herself in an AC/DC tee, casual sweats and a leather jacket with the 2017 NBA MVP crouching down giving her bump a kiss.

First time mom-to-be Khloe Kardashian attended the “Game is Everything” dinner kicking off the weekend with her beau Cleveland Cavalier  Tristan Thompson. 

LeBron James was named All-Star MVP for the third time in his career this past weekend at the 2018 NBA All-Star game. James handpicked his team and then carried it to victory in a win for “Team LeBron” over “Team Stephen” on Sunday.

Kevin Hart and his wife Eniko Parrish Hart and kids were there as was Beyonce  taking selfies with daughter Blue Ivy Carter and mama Tina Lawson and her husband Richard Lawson nearby.

Fun Times! Congrats to Team LeBron!

Report: Monica Brown is Expecting Her Fourth Child

Sources to notoriously accurate gossip blog  Fameolous are claiming that R&B singer Monica Brown is expecting her fourth child.

The site quoted a backstage snoop at one of “The Boy Is Mine” singer’s recent concerts who overheard Monica telling another friend that her daughter Laiyah asked her to dye her hair blue because she thinks her mom is having a baby boy.

Brown, who is married to NBA player Shannon Brown, has yet to confirm the news and is keeping the news to herself and close family until she is further along.

If it is a boy (or twins, some sources say she is expecting two), then it would be her third son. She has  a 13-year old son, Rocko and 10-year old son Romelo with her ex,  rapper Rodney ‘Rocko’ Hill.

This would be her second child with Brown, a former Cleveland Cavalier player who currently plays for the Wisconsin Herd.  In a recent photo of Monica with our more recent Bumpwatch alum, Blac Chyna, she wore a top that seemingly revealed a sizeable baby bump.  Time will tell.
