"I'm Comfortable With Having Girls"

Kobe Bryant wouldn’t mind having another child. He also wouldn’t mind if another girl joined the tribe. The former NBA player’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, is a different story.


“It’s Vanessa’s decision to make,” Kobe said of having more kids during a recent interview with Extra TV. “She wants a boy more than I do,” the celebrity father added. “I’m comfortable having girls. It drives her crazy when I say that — she says, ‘We’re gonna get five girls ’cause you spoke it [in]to existence.'”

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant welcomed their fourth child, Capri Kobe Bryant, in June. The newborn joined her older sisters Bianka, Natalia, and Gianna at home.

“She has been our best baby,” Kobe said of baby Capri. “She sleeps like six hours,” he added. “She’s an absolute sweetheart.” The retired basketball player went on to say, “The big girls help around the house tremendously. Bianka absolutely loves her — the only challenge we have is she wants to kiss her too much.”

Kobe Bryant retired from the NBA in 2016. The celebrity father has been reconnecting with his family and establishing roots in the publishing sector ever since. In fact, Kobe Bryant’s new book, Legacy and The Queen, is inspired by tennis champion Serena Williams.

“The book is about tennis,” Kobe shared. “It’s about the emotions that take place with the main character, Legacy.”

Rising tennis star Naomi Osaka certainly relates to the story. “I love Legacy’s drive, her passion, and her fierce mentality,” Osaka said when asked about her perception of the book’s main character. “I would hope to say that we’re similar in that sense,” Naomi concluded.
