Junie 1Teyana tells us what happened in her own words

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

Junie 2Dad tells his side of the story

We have successfully started our very own family! 2015 has been capped off with a grand finale! Our beautiful daughter is finally here and doing well along with her beautiful mother (my fiancé!!!). This is definitely the best assist I’ve ever recorded in my life. We were indeed terrified until I finally saw her hair…then the fear left and i kinda just knew what to do! Our bathroom is forever sacred lbs! People always tell me there is no greater gift than fatherhood and I finally understand the feeling. I’m not too proud to say I cried endless tears of joy for my first born. Thank you @teyanataylor for this gift and for turning our houses to homes, you are truly special in every aspect! My smile still hasn’t left since her first breath! Thank you to all those that have sent positive vibes our way. You all are deeply appreciated! #iknowyallwassickofourmaternityshoots #yallstillloveus Cue the Gnarls Barkley – smiley faces. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you. 12.16.15 we love you June bug! #meettheparents

The 911 call has now been released and it is so emotional as the new dad can be heard crying as he helped deliver his baby girl.

Congrats. Such a cool story for their daughter to hear.

    Ohh God!!! So emotional and beautiful. This is one experience he’ll never ever forget and would cherish forever. They did good. The emergency response unit did good too, I give them that. This will be the best Christmas ever for Ivan and his woman.

      Oh keep quiet. 911 calls are usually recorded, so it’s no surprise it hit the Internet. Just wish them well and keep it moving.

    When I first read this story, I cried for two reasons. First, the whole emotion. Secondly, my country. Why can’t we have such emergency arrangements and courtesy in Nigeria? Hear how he talked them through the process-courteous and polite. In our General Hospitals they will be asking the poor women in distress: “Na me say make you open your legs carry belle?”
    In cases of emergency you also have no one to call-sad!

    The baby never cried? She needs that rush of oxygen into her brain to help develop. Nice story

    At this point I think it’s important that everyone know and learn the basic things to do in case of an emergency child delivery . This cannot be over emphasized !
