The NBA free agent took to Instagram, on Tuesday, Sept. 8, to praise his wife shortly after she gave birth to their second daughter, Rue Rose. Using a picture of Taylor that was taken a day before the delivery at the baby shower, he poured his heart out in the caption.
“Let’s talk about the Goat,” he said, “two kids…no meds…both natural births successfully done at home-in a bathroom! I get a lot of credit at times but I literally just applaud the way she carried the weight twice, which in actuality equates to her dedicating two years of herself to add to our growing dinner reservation.”
He proceeded to give more credit to his wife, saying: “When you really think about it…all I have to do as a man is catch. When we talk about hero’s, who talks about super powers and doesn’t mention the power of making another minion for your own army! @teyanataylor you are the toughest piece of filet mignon I ever had on my plate. Its up over u mama. Kno dat. I LOVE YOU.”
Taylor eventually came across the post and replied, “Omg who cutting onions in these comments!!!! dis tewwww muchhhh. Love you boo boo! Always and forever king.”
Fans gushed over the married couple in the comments, sending their congratulations and replying with statements like “It’s the caption for me” and “It’s the love fa me.”
Even the famous Erykah Badu made a post welcoming baby Rue and revealing to her fans that she did get the opportunity to assist Taylor with the birth.
Taylor announced her pregnancy in June in her music video to her song “Wake Up Love” with her husband. At the end of the video, viewers can see the couple’s oldest daughter, Tayla Iman Shumpert Jr., get on the bed and kiss both of her parents. Then she goes to kiss her mom’s pregnant belly.
Very soon these two will have even more to be happy about. With their anniversary coming up Oct. 1, the second-time new parents will get to celebrate four years of marriage.
