J.R. Smith daughter born 5 months prematureJ.R. Smith and his wife, Jewel, took to social media on Saturday to share some very difficult and private family news.

The couple, who excitedly announced they were expecting in October, revealed their baby girl was born five months premature.

Dakota Smith was born on January 2 weighing one pound.

J.R. and Jewel are asking for your prayers.

We decided to share with the world what’s been going on with our family for the past five days.

We know a lot of you guys congratulated us on the expectancy of our little baby girl, but we had her five months early.

She’s five days old today and her name is Dakota. She weighs one pound.

We know we’re not the only family going through this, who has been through this, and who will ever go through it that’s why we decided to share what we are going through with you guys.

Please keep us in your prayers and we’ll do the same for everyone else.

God is able!
