Like the rest of the world, we've had our eye on real-life couple Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert ever since they starred in Kanye West's steamy music video for "Fade." And today, in an interview on "Wendy Williams," the singer let it slip that she's actually married to the basketball player!
At first, she evaded the question of whether or not they were husband and wife, saying "Maybe. Maybe not."
But then when discussing their reconciliation after Iman's affair, Taylor slipped up: "Remaining a good person and allowing myself to love again is why I am where I am. I have a beautiful baby, I have a wonderful husband—"
Williams cut her off as the crowd applauded. "HUSBAND?!" the host asked. "You heard it!" It might have been an accident, but Taylor looked no less thrilled to announce it. Shortly after, she brandished her wedding ring—a unique "untreated" or "raw" ruby set in a yellow gold band that she said is "worth more than a diamond."
She's worn the stone for quite some time, and Shumpert posted a photo yesterday with the caption, "Got the hottest chick in the game/ wearing my ring! Dat right!" But this is the first time it's officially been called a wedding ring.
Taylor continued to gush about her husband, saying, "He's so supportive," she told the host. "Not only is he a basketball player he's really just everything. He's like, 'No babe, let's do it, it's time, let's roll, get in the studio.' He's in the studio with me, he's writing with me. His credits are all over my album. He's my biggest supporter."
The couple shares a baby, Iman "Junie" Tayla, who (fun fact) Shumpert himself delivered at home. Now that's what we call supportive. Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!
