J.R. Smith, his family and fans are rejoicing.
That's because the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard and his wife, Jewel, walked their miracle daughter, Dakota, out of the Cleveland Clinic's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) yesterday to bring their pride and joy home for the first time.
"We walked in together, we walked out together!!" Smith wrote on his Instagram account yesterday. "Thank you so much to our extended family at the #NICU. You all are truly the WORLDS GREATEST!"
Dakota was born roughly five months premature in January, only weighing a pound at the time. She had her breathing tube removed in late March and her very first bottle in April, crossing the six-pound mark earlier this month to pave the way for her release home.
J.R.'s fans sent all their love to the Cavs guard and his family upon learning of the great news. And we're here for all of this.
So happy for them.
Say that again!
Anyone have a tissue? We're welling up, too.
Miracles can happen!
Continued prayers to the Smiths' princess.
