At first Taylor, 25, dodged questions about their marital status. “Do I call you Mrs. Shumpert? Because I think you’re secretly married,” the talk show host asked.

The couple share a 9-month-old daughter, Iman “Junie” Tayla Shumpert Jr. Taylor welcomed her first child in the bathroom of her home when she surprisingly went into labor and couldn’t make it to the hospital. “Iman had to tie the umbilical cord with a Beats by Dre cord,” she told Williams.

Taylor also showed off her unique “untreated” ruby ring from the Cleveland Cavaliers player, which she claimed was “worth more than a diamond.” “[Iman’s] a smart man. He’s like, if anything was to ever happen, that ring alone, you’re already set,” she said. “I’m like, yaaas, I like your style!”

The dancer also opened up about what went into her “Fade” performance. “It was bigger than a sports bra and a thong. It was a lot of emotion in that dance, a lot of intensity,” she said.
