Iman Shumpert really is a hands-on dad.

The NBA star delivered his own baby when his fiancée Teyana Taylor went into labor early.

While Taylor wasn't due until January, her baby girl, Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., made a dramatic entrance into the world on Wednesday.

"On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world," the singer captioned a snap of the newborn. "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!"

 

 

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

The Cleveland Cavaliers player then got crafty while waiting for the arrival of licensed medical professionals.

"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," the new mom continued.

A source told E! that the healthy baby girl arrived "at 35 weeks and 4 days, weighing 6lbs. 7oz. and 19.5 inches."

In September, the couple revealed they were having a daughter and had already picked the name Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. 

It was during Teyana's baby shower in November that Iman took the opportunity to pop the question.

While they haven't revealed the wedding date, no doubt the new parents have already received the best wedding gift ever.
