Shumpert is calling it “the best assist I’ve ever recorded in my life.” The delivery happened in the bathroom of their home, according to his Instagram account
And even though the baby is a girl, they named her Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. She was born on Wednesday at 6:42 a.m., after Taylor went into labor before her mid-January due date. The couple didn’t even have time to go to the hospital.

Our bathroom is forever sacred,” Shumpert wrote on Instagram. “People always tell me there is no greater gift than fatherhood and I finally understand the feeling.
