J.R. Smith’s Premature Baby Takes Major Stride By Having Her Very First Bottle (PIC)


Last month, it was reported that J.R. Smith’s daughter, Dakota, who was born almost 5 months early and weighed only 1 pound at the time, had her breathing tubes removed and was breathing on her own.


Less than a month later, little Dakota has made yet another huge stride in her long term health, just before the Cavs took the floor to face off against the Indiana Pacers in Game 1.

“J.R.’s micro-preemie daughter — born at only 1 pound — made another huge stride on Friday and had her very first bottle!

Though the odds were stacked against her, Kota is continuing to fight — and being able to feed from a bottle instead of a feeding tube is a pretty big deal!

J.R. posted about the experience — “My boo got her first bottle today! #proudofyoubaby #kotastrong.”
