JR Smith’s Daughter Dakota Released From Hospital


In January, Cleveland Cavaliers sharpshooter JR Smith took to social media alongside his wife to announce difficult news about their newborn daughter, Dakota. Dakota Smith was born five months premature at 21 gestational weeks; 19 weeks from the usual 40.

Prayers and support have been pouring in ever since – from the NBA family, celebrities, and other sports stars. The odds of survival have improved over recent years for premature babies, and Smith’s daughter’s chances improved each day.

Now, after spending four months at Hillcrest Hospital’s NICU, JR Smith’s daughter Dakota has been released from the hospital. Smith posted photos on Instagram as he and his wife left the hospital with following caption.


“We Walked In Together We Walked Out Together!! Thank you so much to our extended family at the NICU You all are truly the WORLDS GREATEST!”





What great news! All the best to the Smith family.
