Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith received some great news Tuesday — he was able to take his daughter, Dakota, home.

Smith’s daughter was born five months premature and there was a good chance he was not going to make it. But much like her father, Dakota turned out to be a fighter and was able to be carried out of the hospital by her parents.

Smith shared photos of the departure from Hillcrest Hospital on Instagram.

Smith and his wife wife Jewel Harris Smith have two other daughters Demi and Peyton.
