Teyana Taylor is a mother of two now after giving birth at home once again!
The 29-year-old welcomed her second child with husband Iman Shumpert on Sunday, Sept. 6, at 3:28 p.m. the proud father confirmed last Monday.
Daughter Rue Rose Shumpert was born in the family’s bathroom just like her sister Iman Tayla (a.k.a. Junie) was almost five years ago.
The basketball player, 30, revealed the big news by posting a video of the couple’s newborn on Instagram and Twitter.
“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!!!” he wrote in the caption.
“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 [addition] entered the world in the water and came out looking around and ready to explore,” he continued.
“A healthy child. A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins….again. Welcome babygirl…we love you! ???? @babyruerose.”
The songstress shared another video of their baby girl, reposting her husband’s caption.
“We love you Rue, welcome baby girl @babyruerose❤️,” Taylor wrote.
The family had celebrated Rue Rose’s birth the previous day in Atlanta. The baby shower was filled with balloons featuring Taylor, Shumpert and daughter Junie, 4, all dressed in red.
Taylor revealed her pregnancy news in the music video for her song “Wake Up Love,” back in June. In the closing scene, the actress-model-singer shared a kiss in bed with her daughter and husband before pulling down her blanket and lifting up her shirt to show her baby bump for the first time.
“We’re ready, and we’re very excited,” Taylor revealed to 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.”
Junie could be seen in the video pushing her father’s hand away so she could have full access to her mama’s baby bump just shortly after the reveal.
“What she did at the end of the video is Junie the whole time,” she said. “She hogs the whole baby all the time. We were in the bed and loving on one another, and she jumped on the both of us like, ‘I’m here!’ It’s the cutest thing.”
