Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert can do more than just play basketball at a really, really high level, and he proved it early Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday, Shump's fiancée, Teyana Taylor, reportedly didn't realize she was in labor until she felt her soon-to-be-born daughter's head. And by that point, the only option was to have the baby at home.

Enter Dr. Shumpert.

Iman didn't panic. Instead, he went into the bathroom with Teyana and delivered a beautiful baby girl, Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr.

In her Instagram post, Teyana described Shump's heroic actions in detail, including how he tied a pair of headphones around his daughter's umbilical cord until paramedics arrived.

On Dec 16th at 6:42 am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world. She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her took two ten count pushes with my fiancé playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands! Eyes full of tears and barely able to speak to the emergency operator@imanshumpert tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later. She opened her eyes right away, gazed into mine and never cried! He handed her to me wrapped in our bath towel and wiped her face for me to see what LOVE really is. She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched. Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you. #MeetTheParents we love you baby girl

Congratulations, Iman and Teyana!
