With her three daughters, Vanessa Bryant is strolling down memory lane.
Kobe was wearing a Darth Vader shirt that read, “#1 Dad,” in Vanessa’s Instagram snap of the two of them. The caption includes the phrase “Happy Father’s Day, baby” and the hash tag #BestGirlDad.
In a different photo, Vanessa was shown with her kids Natalia, 18, Bianka Bella, 4, and Capri Kobe, 2, in front of Philadelphia’s house where Kobe grew up.
Gianna, 13, and Kobe, 41, were two of the nine people killed in a helicopter crash in January 2020 in Calabasas, California.
In 2001, the former Los Angeles Lakers player wed Vanessa, and the two went on to have four kids.
“Happy Father’s Day to the best dad in the world,” said their 19-year-old eldest daughter Natalia Bryant alongside a photo of Kobe on her Instagram story on Sunday (world). 3000, I adore you.
Last week, Vanessa and her family traveled to Philadelphia, the city where Kobe was born, to see a painting of him and Gianna as well as the opening of a brand-new basketball court decorated in the Lakers’ purple and gold colors.
Before retiring in 2016, Kobe spent all 20 of his NBA seasons with the Lakers, where he won five championships.
