Taylor was initially shy to confirm secretly tying the knot. "Maybe," she said when host Wendy Williams asked if she was married. "Maybe not -- but maybe."

The subject then changed from marriage to Taylor's starring role in Kanye West's "Fade" music video.

"I personally feel like had I not been through what I’ve been through, had I not had [my daughter] Junie and been in a happy space, and in love, I don't think it would’ve came out the same way," she said of the sensual video where she shows off her fit physique. "This was a very emotional performance for me. It was bigger than a sports bra and a thong, it was a lot of emotion in that dance."

Music talk turned right back to Taylor's personal life, particularly her ex-boyfriend, Brandon Jennings, and Shumpert, whom she casually referred to as her husband.

"Remaining a good person and allowing myself to love again, is why I am where I am," she explained. "I have a beautiful baby [and a] wonderful husband."

Williams called Taylor out on her slip-up, but the Harlem native didn't skip a beat, she simply smiled and shared the story of Shumpert delivering their now 9-month-old daughter at home. 

"My water broke on the toilet and he was trying to get me downstairs, and I was like, 'We're not making it to that car,' so I kinda just laid on the bathroom floor," she said, revealing that Shumpert tied a "Beats by Dre cord" around the baby’s umbilical cord.

Later in the interview, Taylor showed off her engagement ring and detailed why her husband gave her an "untreated ruby" instead of a diamond.

"He said, 'If anything would ever happen, with that ring alone you'll be set,'" explained Taylor. "I said 'Yes, I like your style!'"

From getting married to becoming West's muse, it’s safe to say that Taylor is having a pretty great year. Watch her rip the runway in the Chicago rapper’s Yeezy Season 4 fashion show in the video below.
