Vanessa Bryant, widow to the late NBA great Kobe Bryant, recently celebrated Easter with their daughters, 17-year-old Natalia, 3-year-old Bianka and 9-month-old Capri Bryant. Starting off a day early, Vanessa posted a cute Instagram video of her celebrating along with Bianka and Capri.
In the video, young Bianka hits a large Easter egg with a small wooden gavel as baby Capri looks on. “Let me help you,” says Vanessa as she takes the gavel and breaks a hole in the Easter egg. She then pulls out the confetti inside. “Oh look, there are treats inside — let’s see what’s in there,” Vanessa says, as baby Capri smiles brightly. “Is that funny Koko Bean? Is that so cute?”
Vanessa then pulls a piece of chocolate out of the egg and gives it to Bianka, saying: “Look, there’s chocolate.” “Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate,” chirps Bianka before asking, “Mom, can I eat it?” “Yeah, baby bites though,” replies Vanessa. She captioned the video: “Easter Treats!🐰🥚Bianka & Capri 💕.”
On Easter Sunday (April 13), Vanessa posted two adorable photos of her and her daughters dressed in their Easter best. On photo has Vanessa, wearing a pink dress, kneeling to hug Bianka, who is wearing a light green butterfly dress and holding a white Easter basket. The next photo has Natalia, wearing a white shirt and a floral skirt, holding her baby sister Capri, who is wearing a cute pink outfit.
This Easter marks the first Easter that Vanessa and her daughters are celebrating since her husband Kobe and their 13-year-old daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant tragically passed away. On January 26, 2020, Kobe and Gianna, along with Christina Mauser, Sarah and Payton Chester, John, Keri, and Alyssa Altobelli, and pilot Ara Zobayan, were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Kobe was 41 at his time of death, leaving behind Vanessa and their three daughters.
Recently, Kobe Bryant’s second book of his Wizenard series, The Wizenard Series: Season One became a New York Times bestseller two weeks after its release and Vanessa took to Instagram to celebrate, writing: “5 championships 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆. 5 NYT bestsellers 📖📖📖📖📖. The Mamba strikes again. 🐍👑. My husband @kobebryant would have been so proud to see his work continuing on with The #Wizenard Series: Season One. Thank you for supporting his legacy!!!! 🧡#GranityStudios.”
