“She probably sucked out every ounce of milk.inside secrets to parenting and fitness…I had to pump, because she didn’t want to work for the milk…so now I just deal with little mommy insecurities. Whenever I look at super-busty ladies, that ain’t nothing but a little double-sided tape and a push-up bra. We all have flaws….you gotta embrace it.”
Taylor and husband, Cleveland Cavaliers’s player Iman Shumpert welcomed their daughter, Iman Tayla, (Baby Junie) on December 16, 2015.
“You ‘re gonna have a little say down there, and there’s nothing wrong with a little sag. I think today, we forget what real beauty is,” she said. “I appreciate it because this sag is from me birthing and feeding my child, my seed that is part of me. I appreciate every stretch mark, every say. One boob is bigger than the other….but it is what it is. I love my body and I love the place that I ‘m in. I think dance and happiness and movement and family and love is what makes me love my body”

“I just want everybody to know that we are all human, we all have to give birth, there ‘s always that time of the month, we all get our hearts broken, we all find love. We all have insecurities. Whether it’s losing weight or gaining weight….we all feel like, Oh, my eyebrows look crazy today! or My hair is thining1 or whatever it is. But we have to remember that nothing is impossible.”
When she is feeling down, Taylor is often inspired by her daughter. She says that parenthood has made her mature and emotional and her daughter’s fearless attitude is a source of motivation in her own life.
