One of the best parts about being a parent is seeing your child grow up before your eyes. And for celebrities, the world often watches along.
Since giving birth to her first child in 2015, Teyana Taylor has shared Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. aka “Junie,” with fans. Her mini-me has developed a personality of her own and even has an Instagram page (managed by her parents) where she shows off her great fashion sense and dynamic personality.
“She’s the star of our whole world,” Taylor told The Grio about her daughter in 2018. “Honestly, like one thing we want to do is give Junie the freedom to do whatever it is her little mind desires because sometimes she’s singing and she’s playing in makeup and she’s putting on lipstick and she’s dancing, but then she’ll turn around, pick up a basketball and she’s trying to hoop. She’s tall.”
Adding, “We don’t know if she’s gonna be a basketball player or model, singer, businesswoman — whatever it is, I always want to give her the opportunity.”
There’s no telling what Junie will be when she grows up, but we do know that she’ll shine bright. Check out pictures of the mother and daughter duo through the years.
