On Saturday afternoon, J.R. Smith and his wife Jewel posted a video on the ‘Uninterrupted’ social media accounts, revealing that their baby daughter was born five months early.
The baby girl, whom they named Dakota, was born five days ago and weighs one pound, but wasn’t expected until May. The couple asked everyone to keep them in their prayers as well as pray for the many families going through this.

“We know we’re not the only family going through this, who has been through this or who will ever go through it,” Jewel said. “That’s why we decided to share what we’ve been going through with you guys. Please keep us in your prayers, and we’ll do the same for everybody else.”
Prayers go out to the Smith family during this difficult time.
