Cleveland Cavalier J.R. Smith and his wife Jewel took to social media to share some somber news. Their baby daughter, Dakota, has been born five months prematurely.
Dakota is five days old and weighs one pound. She is the family’s third daughter.
In October, he dropped some exciting news. Not only did J.R. Smith confirm reports that he agreed to the terms to return to Cleveland but he dropped another surprise that he and his wife are expecting another baby.
Now, the family is asking for your prayers.
We know we’re not the only family going through this, who has been through this, and who will ever go through it, Smith’s wife, Jewel, said. That’s why we decided to share what we’re going through with you guys. Please keep us in your prayers and we’ll do the same for everybody else.

Smith and Harris have been together for quite some time and are parents to two daughters, Demi and Peyton. The two married in their dream wedding in August 2015.
Normally, J.R Smith is known for being on social media with his shirt off or for other comedic antics. However, this is no laughing matter.
Prayers up for the Smith family.
