Teyana Taylor, who is expecting her second child with Iman Shumpert, is planning for a home delivery--with help from midwife Erykah Badu.

“I’m considering home birth, and I’m actually going to be doing it with Erykah,” Taylor told Nick Cannon during his Power 106 show on Wednesday (June 24). “Her and Iman are going to deliver my baby. I’m [gonna] have her just sing her verse from ‘Lowkey’ to me to calm my nerves.”

She noted that she doesn't want to have the baby in the hospital, assuring, “I’ll make sure it’s not on the toilet or the bathroom floor,” referring to her first child Junie's arrival ahead of the due date.

Earlier this month, Taylor revealed her pregnancy by showing off  her baby bump in the romantic "Wake Up Love" visual, featuring her husband.
