Erykah “Badoula” was in full effect when it was time for Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert to welcome their baby girl, Rue Rose.

The couple welcomed their second daughter on September 6 and according to a post on her Instagram page, Erykah Badu served as their doula.

A doula’s duty is to provide a continuous source of comfort, encouragement and support (both emotional and physical) during labor.

The singer wrote:

Welcome @babyruerose @teyanataylor @imanshumpert

They did that. ❤️??? Thank you both for allowing me to assist. Love, proud Badoula- aka “The welcoming Committee “

Shine Rue !! (Film by e.B.)
