Teyana Taylor is “super excited” to have Erykah Badu help deliver her second child and at home!
“I’m considering homebirth, and I’m actually going to be doing it with Erykah,” the actress, 29, shared with Nick Cannon on his Power 106 morning radio show on Wednesday, June 24.
“Her and Iman are going to deliver my baby. I’m [gonna] have her just sing her verse from ‘Lowkey’ to me to calm my nerves.”
The dancer does not “want” to have her second child in the hospital, she told the Masked Singer host, 39. “I’ll make sure it’s not on the toilet or the bathroom floor,” she joked, referencing her first child Iman’s arrival in a bathroom in 2015.
Her husband, Iman Shumpert, delivered their daughter at the time.
The singer revealed her baby bump at the end of the song, which Shumpert and the 4-year-old touched and kissed.
“To our girls, the name father is another name for what we created, love,” she went on to write via Instagram at the time.
“I have a King to uphold and Queens to raise. #ourblackmenmatter #ourblackwomenmatter #ourblackkidsmatter.”
“I don’t plan how many people I work with. I don’t charge anything. It’s for my own learning, and I just enjoy being the welcoming committee. I became a doula by default. I started studying to be a doula and got my certification in 2011 and now I’m in training to become a midwife. I’m almost there and before I know it I’ll be able to open my own practice, if that’s what I desire.”
Taylor and Shumpert were married in Cleveland, Ohio in October of 2016.
With a background in the creative and educational fields, Amelia Finefrock is freelance writer, singer-songwriter and nanny based in Chicago.
