Neighbor Erykah Badu is full of hidden talents. Among them: delivering babies.
In a 2019 interview, Badu, a licensed doula, revealed she’s helped deliver 40 babies.
Her newest client is Teyana Taylor, who is calling in the R&B superstar to help deliver her second child, Vanity Fair reported. In 2015, Taylor gave birth to her first child in the bathroom with only her husband, NBA player Iman Shumpert, to help.
“I’m gonna do it with Erykah Badu,” Taylor told Vanity Fair. “I’m super excited. I’m gonna have her sing her verse from ‘Lowkey’ to calm my nerves.”
If she wants an expedited delivery, Badu — or should we say Badoula — says Wu-Tang Clan is the music that babies can’t resist.
