Vanessa Bryant has honored her Kobe Bryant on many occasions, but on Wednesday night at the WNBA All-Star game, it was her daughters’ turn.
Bryant’s two youngest daughters, Bianka and Capri, honored their father, Kobe Bryant, and sister, Gianna “Gigi” Bryant by wearing their jerseys at the WNBA All-Star game. Four-year-old Bianka was repping her dad’s Los Angeles Lakers jersey with a number 8 on the front and a 24 on the back. Meanwhile, two-year-old Capri rocked her sister Gigi’s Mamba Academy jersey. The oldest of Vanessa Bryant’s daughters, 17-year-old Natalia, was not at the game.
Bryant, the 39-year-old native of California, posted a photo of her with her daughters as well as pictures of Bianka and Capri posing on their own. Wednesday night’s tribute to Kobe and Gigi at the WNBA All-Star Game is just the latest in a long line of heartfelt things Vanessa and her girls have done to honor their fallen family members.
“Capri repping our Gigi #MAMBACITA at the @wnba All Star Game,” Bryant captioned one of her recent photos from the game. “B.B. repping Daddy. ❤️ #8 #24❤️ @wnba All Star Game.”
Los Angeles Lakers great and NBA Hall-of-Famer, Kobe Bryant, passed away in a tragic helicopter crash in January of 2020. The NBA star died alongside his daughter Gigi and seven other victims in Calabasas, California. Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram on the first anniversary of her family members’ deaths. She said that it “still didn’t feel real.”
“I miss my baby girl and Kob-Kob so much. I will never understand why/how this tragedy could’ve happened to such beautiful, kind, and amazing human beings. Kob, we did it right. Gigi, you still make mommy proud. I love you! #PlayGigisWay #Mambacita #Mamba #DaddysGirl #GirlDad.”
Other Ways Vanessa Has Honored Kobe Bryant and Gigi
She made an emotional Instagram post on the one-year anniversary of the helicopter crash. She also delivered a powerful speech at Kobe Bryant’s NBA Hall of Fame induction. Vanessa Bryant has made it clear she is living her life in honor of her late husband and daughter.
One of the ways she is doing that is by adding some new body art. Late last year, Kobe Bryant’s widow showed off her elegant new foot tattoo with the name of her family. The new ink begins right below Vanessa Bryant’s ankle with Kobe’s Name and then runs along the side of her foot down towards her toe listing her name and the names of her daughters.
That artwork was done by famous tattoo artist Mister Cartoon. Earlier that same week, Mr. Cartoon had tattooed yet another Kobe Bryant piece on popular rapper Snoop Dogg.
