Our hearts go out to J.R. Smith and his family.
The Cleveland Cavaliers player revealed to fans that his wife, Jewel, gave birth to the couple's third baby five months early.
"We decided to share with the world what’s been going on with our family the past five days," Jewel first announced in the video. "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," she continues. "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."
The couple, who have been married since August, announced they were expecting baby Dakota in October, and Jewel took to Instagram on Friday to share a Biblical quote, "Sincerely thanking God for Another Day of Life."
