Cavs’ Iman Shumpert just helped deliver his own baby. His fiancée, Teyana Taylor, posted all the details on Instagram, along with a photo of the baby.

Teyana says on Wednesday at 6:42 a.m., she was in the bathroom at their home, when their baby girl decided to come into the 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”

Teyana says Iman tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord.

“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”

Iman Shumpert was already out for Thursday night’s Cavs game because of a groin injury, and he’ll be spending some time with his new baby girl.
