Last week, JR Smith and his wife, Jewel, shared sad news about the birth of their daughter, Dakota, who was born about five months and was fighting with every ounce of her little body to hold on. It was obviously a very emotional time for the couple but earlier this week, a report from TMZ indicated Dakota was getting better and was doing well which is just fantastic news. Maybe that was why JR decided to somewhat show Dakota off to the world yesterday for the first time.


My loves… #KotaBear #SlimDem

Dakota has big sister Peyton looking over her and she seems happy as can be to see her little sister. Our prayers still continue to go out to JR and his family as we hope Dakota continues to get stronger.
