Thirty-eight-year old Vanessa Bryant and her daughters, Capri,1, Bianka Bella,3, and Natalie,17, shared an afternoon on the golf course with Kobe Bryant’s former Lakers teammate and best friend 40-year-old, Pau Gasol.
Gasol and Bryant developed a close brotherhood with each other while they both played for the Lakers, so much so, that Bryant made Gasol godfather to his children. Upon the death of Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gigi, Gasol has stepped in to make sure that the family has all of the help and support that they need.
Just like a proud uncle, Gasol posted on Instagram, “Nani was incredible today!! 🏌🏽♀️❤️.”
And of course, it was unquestionably one-year-old Capri who hands-down won the cutest picture award for the day on the course as she was snapped behind the wheel of a golf cart, pretending to drive.
This was the first Halloween that Bryant and her daughters celebrated since losing Kobe and Gianna. Yet, the amazing mother made the best of the holiday for she and her daughters with adorable costumes for the day.
First, the girls all dressed up as Madeline in Paris, while Bryant dressed as Miss Clavel.
The second look of the day included uncle Pau, his family, and a “Star Wars” theme.
Bryant went as Darth Vader, Natalia as a taller version of BB8, Bianka a storm trooper, and Capri, once again, stealing the show, was dressed as an adorable Ewok. Gasol, who is 7’1″ tall, fittingly dressed as Chewbacca.
It definitely looks like Halloween was a success, although, it was unquestionably a difficult first without Kobe and Gianna.
“Roller coaster of a week,” Bryant posted on her private Instagram account according to Yahoo News. “Thx to our loving village we’re getting through it. One day at a time.”
Kobe and Gianna Bryant died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on January 26, 2020. The father and daughter duo died along with seven others in the horrible accident.
