Singer Teyana Taylor gave birth to her second child, a sweet baby girl named Rue Rose.

The 29-year-old gave birth on Sunday morning at home in her bathroom -- the morning after her star-studded baby shower in Atlanta, Ga.

Her husband, NBA star Iman Shumpert confirmed in an Instagram post.

"At 3:28 am on Sept 6th 2020 Rue Rose decided that the baby shower thrown for her and mommy was too lit. She didn't make the party but she managed to make the next day her birthdate!!!" Iman posted.

The girl dad added: "Now... when we buy homes, we always find a bathroom with great energy... but not in a million years would you be able to tell me we'd deliver both of our daughters in a bathroom without the assistance of a hospital!

"Our newest edition entered the world in the water and came out looking around and ready to explore! A healthy child. A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins... again. Welcome babygirl... we love you!”

Teyana reposted Iman's post and added, "We love you Rue, welcome baby girl @babyruerose," along with a bunch of emojis.

Teyana's fans speculated about the meaning behind the baby's name.

"Rue" in French means street or lane. And in English literature, "rue" means to express sorrow or regret, such as in the sentence: "I rue the day he cheated on me."

Rue may be short for ruby or slang for "rouge", the color of cosmetics such as the red lipstick her mom favors.

The couple is also parents to four-year-old daughter Iman Shumpert Jr.

Atlanta is wide open during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Atlanta is a Democratic stronghold but the clubs here are popping with club patrons not socially distancing or wearing face masks. Everyone feels safe because the coronavirus pandemic is over - at least in Atlanta!

Socialite Lori Harvey introduced her new man, Ben Da Donn, to her friends. Ben is a music producer and aspiring rapper. He is very tight friends with NFL star Odell Beckham Jr.

Other than that, Ben is a mystery. Check out his Instagram page.

Winnie Harlow has a reputation for having a nasty attitude. An industry insider called out Harlow for rudely shoving her on the way to the open (free) bar at Teyana Taylor's listening party.

Marketer and music-industry insider Dimplez Ijeoma tweeted that she had "the wildest encounter" with the runway model at a listening party for Taylor's new album in Los Angeles.

Ijeoma tweeted: "Had the wildest encounter with @WinnieHarlow... crazy how someone so pretty could be so ugly--as a human being. God bless her."

Harlow responded to the tweet, asking "what happened?"

Ijeoma responded, tweeting: "Oh you know... pushing me out the way as you bulldozed your way to the front of a drink line. Having your manager call our mutual friend to ask me to take the tweet down. Typical mean girl BS. Be blessed."

Ileoma added: "Listen... Trey Songz de-escalated me IMMEDIATELY. b/c I was 2 seconds away from snatching her by the faux locs."

Harlow replied, saying she was drunk and apologizing for the intrusion.

"My love we were all tipsy. If I pass you to the bar it wasn't on purpose, it was an open bar." She added, "I apologize if I’ve made you feel [that] way. That definitely [was] not my intent."

Harlow denied having her manager call anyone.

"I've just woken up to this [message]. I didn't have anyone do anything."

Ijeoma's followers overwhelmingly agreed that Harlow has an attitude problem.

Teyana Taylor opened up about her battle with body image insecurities. The 28-year-old Harlem native revealed she struggles with what many consider her ideal body.

The R&B singer and dancer said, "People may say I have a perfect body, but I have certain insecurities too. You know what's crazy? A lot of people think, 'Yeah your body is cool,' but, like, there's been plenty of roles where it's like, 'Oh yeah, you have to gain weight' and it's very hard for me to gain weight, you know what I'm saying?"

Teyana, who follows a strict diet of celery juice and water, says "It’s not easy, or I lose weight for any little thing and I'm already small, I can't afford to lose any more weight, but that's just my personal thing."

Teyana credits her good genes and her at-home workout, Fade2Fit, for her brawny bod.

"Nobody's perfect. Everyone has their own little insecurities, so I wanted to create a body program that you can do in the comfort of your own home and not worry about who's watching or looking."

She added: "If I walk into a gym, people think I'm gonna do backflips, lift 100-pound weights. Like, that's still a pre-judgement of, 'Oh she's got a 20-pack, so I know she's about do some work. And I'm really just shy, so you never know. Never judge a book by its cover."

Teyana is mom to 2-year-old Iman Tayla Shumpert by her husband of 3 years, NBA player Iman Shumpert, 29.

She vigorously denied undergoing an abdominal etching procedure.
