Vanessa Bryant Shares Photo of Daughter Natalia, 17, in Front of Kobe and Gianna Mural


Natalia Bryant is thinking of Kobe and Gianna.

On Sunday, Natalia paid tribute to her late NBA legend dad and 13-year-old sister by posing in front of a memorial mural of the two before attending her winter formal.

Vanessa Bryant, Kobe’s wife, shared the photo of her eldest daughter on her Instagram on Sunday.

“❤️ my babies. Natalia. #winterformal,” the mother of four captioned the pic.

The photo features 17-year-old Natalia smiling in front of the mural in a navy dress with white polka dots.

The wall art behind her showcases a touching rendering of Kobe and Gianna sitting next to each other, with the Los Angeles Lakers star kissing the 13-year-old on the head and she smiles with her eyes closed and leans on her dad’s shoulder.

Friends and fans alike showed their love and chimed in on the sweet photo.

NBA star Dwayne Wade commented with heart emojis.

“Beautiful,” wrote WNBA star Candace Parker, followed by several heart emojis.

The outpourings of love and tribute have been frequent throughout the last month for the Bryant family.

Vanessa Bryant recently responded to a tattoo that Sharia Washington, Kobe’s sister, got to honor her late brother and niece. “2~24 forever,” Vanessa included in the caption of her Instagram post of the memorial body ink.

In February, Vanessa Bryant filed a wrongful death suit against the helicopter company that crashed and killed her husband and eight others in Calabasas on Jan. 26.

The suit was filed the same morning as the public memorial at Staples Center for the basketball star. During her emotional speech at the event, Vanessa remembered her beloved family members, and revealed to the crowd that Kobe gifted her the iconic blue dress from the 2004 romance film “The Notebook.”
