NBA Star J.R. Smith's Baby Making Progress After Being Born 5 Months Early

Cleveland Cavaliers player J.R. Smith and his wife Jewel‘s baby daughter is doing better after being born five months early.

The couple welcomed their little girl Dakota back in January and shared the news in a touching video.

Earlier this week, Jewel took to the baby’s website to share that after months of hard work, she no longer needs a breathing tube.

“I mean I was beyond excited to hold our 2lb 13oz miracle in the palm of my hands for the very first time,” she wrote.

Jewel added, “What some mothers get to experience within the first 2 minutes of giving birth I had to wait 78 days but, what I will say is it was worth the wait because those very feelings, emotions and joy that took over my body trumps it all.”

We’re so glad to hear baby Dakota is doing better!

NBA Star Kyrie Irving Thinks the Earth is Flat (Video)

Kyrie Irving, who is playing in the NBA All-Star Game this weekend, is making headlines after he revealed his belief that the Earth is flat.

“This is not even a conspiracy theory,” Irving said while appearing on the “Road Trippin’ with RJ & Channing” podcast. “The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. … It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.”

Kyrie doubled down on his belief while talking to reporters.

“The fact that that could be news all over the world just shows you how it is,” Kyrie said. “The fact that it’s a social phenomenon — ‘Kyrie thinks the world is flat’ — is hilarious to me. … That it could actually be news.”

“I think people should do their own research, man,” Irving told ESPN. “Hopefully they’ll either back my belief or they’ll throw it in the water. But I think it’s interesting for people to find out on their own… I’ve seen a lot of things that my educational system has said that was real that turned out to be completely fake. I don’t mind going against the grain in terms of my thoughts.”
