Calling it "the best assist I've ever recorded in my life," Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert helped fiancee Teyana Taylor deliver their baby girl earlier this week in the bathroom of their home, according to his Instagram account.

Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. was born Wednesday at 6:42 a.m. after Taylor went into labor before her mid-January due date. The couple didn't even have time to go to the hospital.


"We were indeed terrified until I finally saw her hair … then the fear left and i kinda just knew what to do! Our bathroom is forever sacred," Shumpert wrote on Instagram. "People always tell me there is no greater gift than fatherhood and I finally understand the feeling. I'm not too proud to say I cried endless tears of joy for my first born. Thank you @teyanataylor for this gift and for turning our houses to homes, you are truly special in every aspect!"

He then sang a ditty to his daughter.

Shumpert, who is dealing with a right groin strain, will likely play in Sunday's home game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
