J.R. Smith Holds His Preemie Baby Girl Dakota For The First Time:

It was just one month ago, that NBA star J.R. Smith and his wife, Jewell, announced their daughter, Dakota, was born 5 months premature.

Through God’s grace, Dakota is now a month old and is continuing to thrive.

J.R. took to Instagram to share he was finally able to hold his baby girl for the first time today.

It’s a moment he described as, “One of the greatest days of my life.”



Jewel was over the moon as well…


God bless little Dakota!

We’re still praying for her.
