Iman Shumpert delivered his own baby, wait what?
Iman Shumpert delivered his fianceé’s baby, according to an Instagram post by (his fianceé) Teyana Taylor.
There are many crazy things going on here. First, the post:
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

Okay, well let me start by saying I half-expected this baby to be born with a fully-grown flattop haircut. Moving on, what does Taylor mean by Shumpert tying his headphones around the umbilical cord. WHY? What does that mean? Aren’t you supposed to cut the umbilical cord?
Also, according the post, the baby never cried. This kicked off an office debate on whether or not babies are supposed to cry when they are first born. We also have barely discussed the fact Iman Shumpert delivered a baby in the bathroom.
This is easily the craziest thing a Cleveland Cavalier has ever done, and somehow J.R. Smith wasn’t involved. At least now we know what to look forward to on Empire next season.
