The singer and her husband Iman Shumpert welcomed daughter Rue Rose early Sunday morning.
Teyana Taylor and her husband, NBA star Iman Shumpert, welcomed their second child on Sunday, a baby girl they named Rue Rose.
“At 3:28 am on Sept 6th 2020 Rue Rose decided that the baby shower thrown for her and mommy was too lit. She didn’t make the party but she managed to make the next day her birthdate!!!,” Shumpert, 30, wrote in the caption of a video of their newborn shared to social media.
Rue Rose Shumpert was born in the family’s bathroom, as was her older sister, five-year-old daughter Iman Tayla (a.k.a. Junie). Taylor gave birth a day after her baby shower in Atlanta.
“Now…when we buy homes, we always find a bathroom with great energy… but not in a million years would you be able to tell me we’d deliver both of our daughters in a bathroom without the assistance of a hospital! Our newest edition entered the world in the water and came out looking around and ready to explore,” the basketball player continued.
“A healthy child. A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins….again. Welcome babygirl…we love you!,” Shumpert added, along with the newborn’s Twitter handle: @babyruerose.
Taylor shared her husband’s message in a separate video of the baby that she shared on her own Instagram page — see below:
Taylor revealed her second pregnancy in the music video for her song “Wake Up Love,” which she dropped in June.
“We’re ready, and we’re very excited,” Taylor told PEOPLE at the time. “Iman is super excited. Junie is ecstatic — I’m talking super ecstatic. Everybody is just excited. I can’t wait. I’ve got three more months left until we meet our little princess.”
Taylor also dished about having a home birth during an interview with Nick Cannon in June, theGRIO previously reported.
“You know what’s crazy, even though the Junie story is crazy, it kind of put me in a comfort zone where I don’t—I don’t know if I want to go to the hospital for this next baby,” she confessed.
“Imma make sure it’s not on the toilet or the bathroom floor,” she noted playfully.
