On the cover this month of Ebony magazine, Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert serve up some Black love.
Today (April 11), Ebony released their latest cover and it features Taylor and Shumpert along with their two gorgeous girls Iman Tayla “Junie” and Rue Rose. Throughout their conversation, the couple discusses how they balance pursuing their passions and playing a steady and loving role in the lives of their children. During their showcase of Black love, Shumpert was asked what it looks like to him.
He responded that it “looks like the pain you share with someone else, so it’s not as heavy. It means unconditional love because you’re going to celebrate together when it doesn’t hurt anymore.” He continued, “It’s affectionate and unapologetic; it is bold and needed in a world full of hate. I love Black love.” Taylor made sure to mention how she nurtures and encourages the creativity of her kids.
“We let her express herself emotionally. We think that’s important. If Junie wants to be an engineer, then a drummer, or she wants to do ballet, and then tap, we will give her every little thing that she needs until she decides what she wants. We allow her to do whatever it is that her heart desires. And I think that’s what also keeps her respectful because sometimes when you hold on to kids too tight, when they get older, they rebel. Finding a great balance with children is very important.”
