Cleveland Cavaliers star J.R. Smith and his wife Shirley are commemorating their second wedding anniversary as well as her birthday in a very adorable way.

Shirley had a few words of her own on the special day, even though she said her husband makes her feel like everyday is her birthday.
“We were originally supposed to get married 8-8-2008 but that wasn’t in Gods plan…
Here we are celebrating our second anniversary #8-8-2016 and today 8-8-2018 is the national day of happiness…how fitting is this?
Babe, You have been my rock!!
I have seen You do a 360 first hand and it takes a strong person…especially a man to change or alter their ways as an adult but you….YOU! You are beyond special to me and you get it…that’s how I know this love is real. 8 represents a cycle which to me is no surprise bc we recycled right back to one another when the timing was right.
With you my birthday is every day so it was never a second guess or thought to share our anniversary& my bday together #whenyouknowyouknow I am so proud of you! Just know that I will always uplift you and have your front and back! #illwarshallyouniggasodformines #allmines #manohman #allicansay”
The Smiths wed back in 2016 although they were together on and off for the past 10 years. They are now the parents to 3 beautiful daughters–Demi, Dakota, and Denver–in which they often give a glimpse into their family life through social media.
Congrats to The Smith family!
