JR Smith's daughter Dakota, who was born five months premature in January, was released from the neonatal intensive care unit yesterday. She weighed just one pound at birth and has spent the first five months of her life in the neonatal unit at the Cleveland Clinic.

JR made the uplifting announcement on instagram yesterday, sharing pictures of him and his wife finally leaving the NICU with their baby girl.

"We Walked In Together We Walked Out Together!! Thank you so much to our extended family at the #NICU You all are truly the WORLDS GREATEST! @jewey808 back to #TeamNoSleep 🍼🍼🍼 #KotasHome"

After last night's Game 4 victory over the Celtics, JR reportedly didn't stick around to see if the media had any questions - he sprinted home to be with his family.

JR added another picture to his IG account this morning with his daughters which you can check out below.
