The 29-year-old singer during a remote appearance on Nick Cannon Mornings on Power 106 said that Erykah, 49, will help assist in the delivery of her second child.
Erykah also was featured on Teyana’s song Lowkey from her recently released third studio album titled The Album.

‘I don’t know if I want to go to the hospital for this next baby. I’ll make sure it’s not on the toilet or the bathroom floor,’ Teyana told Nick, 39.
Teyana shared that she’s been ‘considering home birth, and I’m actually going to be doing it with Erykah. Her and Iman are going to deliver my baby,’ she said referencing her 29-year-old husband Iman Shumpert.
‘I’m super excited. I’ma have her just sing her verse from ”Lowkey” to me to calm my nerves,’ Teyana said after Nick noted that Erykah, who is a certified doula, was a midwife.
Teyana gave birth to her daughter Junie on the bathroom floor in 2015 after she went into early labor and Iman delivered the baby on his own. She said the experience was making her lean toward a home birth for their second child, but with better preparation.
