“We know we’re not the only family going through this, who has been through this or who will ever go through it,” Jewel says adding that their newborn daughter’s name is Dakota. “That’s why we decided to share what we’ve been going through with you guys. Please keep us in your prayers and we’ll do the same for everybody else.”
As reported by ESPN, the Cavaliers guard had announced their pregnancy in October in a video also posted on Uninterrupted, when he confirmed his contract extension with the team.
The Smiths tied the knot in August 2016, after being together for years. They have two daughters, Demi and Peyton. Smith recently had surgery to repair a “complex fracture” of his right thumb that’s put him off the court for weeks.
Our prayers are with their beautiful family.
