According to Shumpert’s Instagram account, the duo are expecting their first child. On Wednesday evening, the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard confirmed the rumor when he posted a sonogram image of their growing baby girl, with an attached due date of January 16.
“When a man loves a woman how she was born to be loved…procreation is the best blessing you can receive! I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with. Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world ‘1.16.16.’” wrote the 25-year-old.
He continued, “We want that world to be as pure as possible for her. We people, show the world what we feel the world should see when we want them to see it…something this beautiful had to be announced when we were ready for everyone to know…this is what happiness grows into! I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family! P.s. I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up…??…she’s already daddy’s little girl!!!”
The super sweet announcement follows shortly after the rumor mill began speculating that the songbird was with child. Congrats to the couple!
