Teyana Taylor reveals that Erykah Badu is her midwife.
Teyana Taylor recently dropped off a new album, simply titled The Album, which included familial collaborations. Her baby girl, June, is featured on the album's second song, and her husband, Iman Shumpert appears on the album's third record and lead single "Wake Up Love." She clearly had this one planned for awhile, with her album cover shot prior to her pregnancy, as the singer's abs are still on display. She only revealed her latest pregnancy mid-June when she released her music video for the aforementioned "Wake Up Love."
Today, she's diving further into pregnancy talk with Power 106 host Nick Cannon. In a clip that's been circulating, Teyana speaks about having another home birth, a la Junie. While June's home birth delivery was unplanned, Teyana seems to have no desire to have her second baby born in the hospital.

"Even though the Junie story is crazy, it kind of put me in the comfort zone where I don’t know if I want to go to the hospital for this next baby. I’m going to make sure it’s not on the toilet or the bathroom floor," she told Cannon about the upcoming birth. She went on to reveal that none other than Erykah Badu will be helping with her delivery as her midwife.
"I’m just going to do a home birth and I’m actually going to be doing it with Erykah. They’re going to deliver my baby. I’m going to have her sing her verse from 'Lowkey' to me so I can be calm."
