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 Breaks the VMAs, Becomes Everyone’s #BodyGoals

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)

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 6 days later. So, it came as no surprise to us at Bellyitch that her body would be this hot months later.

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.

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).

 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.
