Dads on duty! JR Smith gives an update on his daughter Dakota, who was born prematurely, and it’s melting out hearts. Meanwhile, Chris Bosh was on daddy duty with his daughter Trinity Bosh. More inside…
NBA player JR Smith (and his wife Jewel) welcomed his baby girl Dakota in October 2016. She was born five months early, weighing in at just 1 pound. The Cleveland Cavalier baller has kept his fans updated on her progress since her birth and today, he enjoyed a heartwarming milestone.
The NBA champion posted up a sweet picture holding his baby girl on his chest captioning, “Today is one of the greatest days of my life. Today I get to hold my youngest for the first time! GOD is GREAT! #DakotaStrong”
The father-of-three, who’s currently recovering from a thumb injury, is getting in as much time as he can with his daughter while on injury reserve.
Last month, he shared a flick of his daughter Demi looking into the incubator and smiling at her baby sister:
We’re sure JR will be cherishing these moments before he has to return to the court in March.
In other doting daddy news…
Miami Heat star Chris Bosh is teaching his daughter Trinity Bosh how a man should treat her when the time comes.
Bosh, whose NBA career is up in limbo following a blood-clot condition, got all dressed up to take his daughter to a daddy-daughter dance. Before heading off to the event, Bosh gifted his daughter with flowers and corsage. Little Trinity looked super excited too! Aww...date night with dad.
