The couple, which began dating last year (14), was recently rumoured to be starting a family, and on Wednesday (02Sep15), the excited dad-to-be took to social media to share Taylor's sonogram photo with fans and followers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers player writes, "I couldn't be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with."

Shumpert, 25, reveals the baby girl is due in January (16) - and he and his partner already have a name picked out.

He adds, "Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world (on) '1.16.16.'... I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family!"

Referring to the sonogram photo, he continues, "I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up... she's already daddy's little girl!!!"

Responding to the post, 24-year-old Taylor, who is signed to Kanye West's GOOD Music label, writes, "& that's all that matters... I love you baby @imanshumpert".
