Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s daughter, Natalia Bryant, has been accepted to the University of Oregon! The teen’s mom shared the news with social media fans on Wednesday (Feb. 10).


Vanessa shared a screenshot of Natalia’s acceptance letter from the university with her Instagram fans. The celebrity mom added a sticker to the shot that sent congratulatory vibes to her daughter for such an accomplishment.

It is no secret that Natalia has been considering universities to attend in the fall. It was just a few weeks ago that Vanessa joked about working to keep her daughter in California while also telling fans about Natalia’s desire to attend New York University (NYU).


“NYU is one of her top schools,” Vanessa told her social media fans. “I will do my best to keep her in Cali just like I kept her daddy here,” the celebrity mom mused.

Kobe Bryant spent all of his 20 years with the NBA playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. The late star athlete became recognized as an icon of the city and as someone who, through his notoriety and accomplishments, “built” the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Natalia Bryant is carving a path of her own with college acceptance letters and her recent signing to IMG Models agency. “I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age,” Natalia shared in a statement regarding the new venture.

“I have a love for the industry, and ever since I can remember, I wanted to model,” the young talent added. “There is a lot to learn, but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.”

Natalia is Vanessa and Kobe Bryant’s oldest child. She celebrated her eighteenth birthday last month.
