In Western pop culture consciousness, Iman was the name of the gorgeous multilingual supermodel and human rights activist who married David Bowie — after she married 1970s NBA star Spencer Haywood. But the Iman in the public eye more often recently — at least in America — is Iman Shumpert, an NBA shooting guard who played for the New York Knicks before joining LeBron James for a run at the NBA championship last year. Iman is a common name for both men and women, but Shumpert just announced an interesting twist.
Posting an ultrasound of his daughter — due to arrive in January — Iman Shumpert announced that he and her mother have decided to name the girl, Iman Jr. It’s a great name for a girl, of course. But is she really a junior? All best wishes to the Shumpert family and a warm welcome to Iman Jr. Iman the expectant dad writes that “When a man loves a woman how she was born to be loved…procreation is the best blessing you can receive!”
When a man loves a woman how she was born to be loved…procreation is the best blessing you can receive! I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with. Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world “1.16.16”. We want that world to be as pure as possible for her. We people, show the world what we feel the world should see when we want them to see it…something this beautiful had to be announced when we were ready for everyone to know…this is what happiness grows into! I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family! P.s. I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up…??…she’s already daddy’s little girl!!!
