Former “Basketball Wives LA” star Draya caused a bit of a debate on social media the other day because she posted video of her giving birth to her son with Orlando Scandrick.

On the touching Instagram post she shared on Mother’s Day, VH1 writes:

Draya Michele gave birth to baby boy Jru Scandrick on April 8th but waited until Mother’s Day to share the precious and intimate (and a little bit graphic) moment of her giving birth followed by a beautiful message to other mothers out there. Not for nothing, she made pushing out a tiny human look so easy! The video shows a silent Draya pulling her baby out with her own hands. Read her message below and check out the video before she pulls it down!

Happy Mother’s Day to the women out there. We are created to recreate and that is the biggest gift of all from God. I had a silent delivery because I didn’t want to stress my baby and when I pulled him from my body I’ve never felt so important. I’ve made mistakes and had some growing to do and this little guy came at the right time. Orlando, thank you for Jru, Tatiana and Taylor,and loving Kniko unconditionally. Yesenia, bestie, godmother, sister….I couldn’t have done this without you and Orlando by my side. Thanks to my Dr. And a special #happymothersday to Shonna my nurse. I’m strong. #reachoutandbringlifeintotheworld Jru is a month today, and what a special day it is. ❤️ sorry if this offends anyone. I’ll be removing it shortly.
