Vanessa Bryant along with daughters Gianna and Natalia smile wide at the world premiere of Maleficent. The girls are certainly growing up. Natalia is almost as tall as her mom in this pic!


Vanessa has said that motherhood is a rewarding experience. “Motherhood is the most rewarding and amazing thing that I think a woman can experience,” said the basketball wife in an interview. “I love my children more than anything and my goal is to be the solid rock and constant security for them. Motherhood has most definitely taught me to be selfless, patient, understanding, and to always think of my children and their very best interests before thinking of my own. I stay balanced by trying to schedule an hour of ‘me time.’ Even if it is an hour of paying my personal trainer to kick my butt.”

Natalia and Gianna are Vanessa and husband Kobe Bryant’s daughters. Natalia celebrated her eleventh birthday in January, and Gianna turned 8-years-old on May 1, 2014.
