Iman Shumpert was moved to tears while talking about the birth of his daughter with Teyana Taylor, Iman Jr.

The NBA star got a little emotional during a chat with “Good Morning America” just days after his daughter’s arrival as he recalled the moments just before she made her big debut.

Iman helped to deliver their daughter in the couple’s home because Teyana was not going to make it to the hospital in time to have her in a medical facility.

“It was just time for [Iman Jr.] to come, so we counted to 10. She did her [breathing],” Iman said before getting a little misty-eyed. “It was like finishing like a long marathon.”

Many new dads are at a complete loss on what to do once the baby is born, and that’s when they’re surrounded by a team of experts. Iman, however, held it together as well as could be expected while a 911 dispatcher told him what to do once Iman Jr. had been delivered.

Check out audio of his 911 phone call below.
