JR Smith & Wife’s Baby Born 5 Months Early

Cleveland Cavalier’s J.R. Smith and his wife Jewel are asking that the public lend prayers to their family. Over the weekend, the couple — who have been married since last August — revealed that Jewel gave birth to their third daughter five months before her due date. Jewel explained,

We decided to share with the world what’s been going on with our family 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 and 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’re going through with you guys. Please keep us in your prayers and we’ll do the same for everyone else.

See the clip.

Our thoughts and prayers are with their family.
