Singer, actress, and model Teyana Taylor has been named Maxim’s Sexiest Woman Alive, and is the first black woman to be given the title.
Teyana has been married to husband Iman Shumpert since 2016 and the couple share two children together: Iman Taylor Shumpert Jr. and Rue Rose Shumpert. Both of their daughters were born in their family home.
Teyana shared the news of being named Sexiest Woman Alive on her Instagram, where she wrote:
“Embrace and love yourselves for who & what you are because only the purest heart shines through. Thank you @maximmag I am truly honoured to have graced the cover.”
Who is Iman Shumpert?
Iman Shumpert is a basketball player who was drafted with the 17th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft by the New York Knicks.
In 2015, he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers from the Knicks in a three-team trade that also involved the Oklahoma City Thunder. Iman has also played for the Houston Rockets and the Sacramento Kings.
On January 30th 2021, Iman signed a deal to return to the Brooklyn Nets and played one game before being waived.
Teyana told Wendy Williams that she didn’t like Iman at first. She said:
“When I first met him, he had just gotten drafted. He was young and doing a lot. I was at a party. He was drunk and had his shirt off. It was just too much going on, baby.”
In September 2015, Iman announced that Teyana pregnant. He posted on Instagram: “I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with.”
The pair tied the knot in 2016 in their home, following Iman’s proposal at their baby shower.
Iman and Teyana had a VH1 reality TV series called “Teyana & Iman” which only lasted for one series, however, the couple will be appearing on a new E! show titled “We Got Love Iman & Teyana.”
Teyana Taylor named first black Sexiest Woman Alive
Teyana Taylor has been named as Maxim’s Sexiest Woman Alive, and is the first black woman ever to receive the title. Teyana took to Instagram to share her excitement, where she wrote:
“Somebody pinch me!!!! Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in. WOW….Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence. Living up to name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous.”
She continued: “As a entrepreneur, wife, a busy mother of two & working behind the lens in my director bag I tend to hide behind my sweats & vintage tees, My “Spike Tey” glasses, and whatever hair style I’ve mustered up that day under my @theauntiesinc snap back! So I as you can see I don’t have much time to be and feel sexy.”
