TMZ reports today that Cleveland Cavalier Iman Shumpert can add temporary OB/GYN to his list of off-court accomplishments.

Via TMZ: 



R&B superstar Teyana Taylor says she had no idea she was in labor until she felt the child's head making it's way out of her around 6 AM.

"It took two ten count pushes with my fiancé playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands!"

Teyana says the Cleveland Cavs star was on the phone with the emergency operator who walked him through the process — and he used a pair of red headphones to tie the umbilical cord (since they didn't have a medical grade clamp).

Taylor confirmed the events on Instagram:

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💂🏾🐞👶🏾
