Blac Chyna Did the Mannequin Challenge In Labor, Costarring Rob Kardashian and Kris Jenner
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian welcomed their baby girl, Dream Renee, into the world yesterday (Nov. 10). As Blac Chyna prepared to give birth, she was surrounded by friends and family, including Rob’s mom/Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. How do we know? Because the E! reality show stars filmed Chyna’s delivery, naturally — and they staged a Mannequin Challenge video right there in the delivery room. When you’re a social media sensation you have got to stay on trend, even while passing a small human out of your body.
The scene, which is a classic example of the Matrix-y, continuous-take microgenre, begins with friends filming the birth and examining a readout on the machine next to Chyna’s bed (nice touch). Then comes Kris Jenner biting her finger, unmoving in her “nervous” pose. The biggest prize goes to Blac Chyna herself, who holds a grimace in what very well may be an actual moment of physical discomfort, and the camera finally pans to Rob ready to “catch” the baby.
“Dream Team,” Chyna accurately captioned the faux freeze frame. Watch Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian’s #MannequinChallenge video below.
The video’s set to Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” a frequent soundtrack for Mannequin Challenge videos — Sir Paul McCartney returned the rap duo’s homage with a video of his own on Thursday morning.
