Her name is Rue Rose, and she showed up in dramatic fashion, just one day after their baby shower. Iman took to Instagram to announce the news of their new baby. What's also great about this is, singer Erykah Badu helped deliver the baby, as she was the couples midwife. They gave birth at home in their bathroom tub with Badu there to assist.
