Teyana Taylor kick-started her album with never-before-heard audio from the moment she unexpectedly delivered her first baby! Her husband, Iman Shumpert, can be heard crying (fans followed his cue).

Teyana Taylor’s newest project, The Album, is truly THE album of the year. It seems like just about every big name in the music industry contributed their vocals: Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliott, Rick Ross, Erykah Badu, Quavo, Kehlani, Future, Big Sean and King Combs. Of course, Teyana’s voice stands just as powerfully alone across the 23-track album (this was truly an undertaking). But one particular track on the 29-year-old powerhouse’s record made many cheeks wet.

The album’s very first song, “Intro,” gave a peek at an incredibly private moment in Teyana’s relationship with her husband, NBA star Iman Shumpert: the birth of their first child. Iman can be heard making a frantic phone call to a paramedic as Teyana welcomed their baby girl, Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., inside their home in Dec. 2015.

“She’s having a baby!,” Iman exclaims over the phone. You could hear both the wonder and concern in his voice as he adds, “I have my daughter in my hands.” Teyana was just eight months pregnant at the time, so the birth was unexpected. The first-time father starts to break down in tears, and it didn’t take long for listeners to shed tears as well.
