Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s daughter, Natalia, hopes to give a bit of hope to those who are suffering. The 17-year-old revealed how she has managed to cope with the loss of her father and sister, Gianna Bryant, during a recent Instagram Story interaction with her fans.
“I wasn’t going to do this one, but thought it was important to share because you never know when someone is going through problems of their own,” Natalia told her social media fans. “I genuinely think that it is so important to find your close circle of trusted people and be able to vocalize your feelings to them when you are ever down or not feeling like yourself,” the teen shared.
“This is also a lot easier said than done but just know that you are never alone,” Natalia continued. “This is something I have learned throughout this year and still continue to work at with the help of close family and friends.”
Natalia Bryant suffered a devastating loss earlier this year. Both Kobe and Gianna Bryant were killed in a helicopter accident on Sunday, January 26, 2020. The legendary NBA star and his 13-year-old daughter were two of nine victims who died in the crash.
A citywide memorial service was held for Kobe and Gianna Bryant on February 24, 2020. Celebrities from near and far flocked to the Staples Center in Los Angeles to pay their respects and also offer support to Vanessa and the Bryant family.
Vanessa Bryant shared a holiday post that paid tribute to her late husband and daughter earlier this month. The celebrity mom uploaded a photo from the family’s recent photoshoot to Instagram, which she paired with a throwback candid that featured Kobe and Gianna Bryant. “Always Together, Never Apart. Together, Forever In Our Hearts,” Vanessa captioned.
