How to supply authentication with Python for Confluence Cloud API

How do I include my apikey and username when I am using Confluence API? 

Here's my code: 

import requests
import json

url = ""

headers = {
"Accept": "application/json"

response = requests.request(

print(json.dumps(json.loads(response.text), sort_keys=True, indent=4, separators=(",", ": ")))

Where would I add the authentication?
