Kobe Bryant’s wife shared a touching holiday message and photos as she spent her first Christmas without her husband or daughter.
Vanessa Bryant, who lost Kobe and 13-year-old daughter Gianna in a tragic helicopter crash in January, posted two family portraits: one shot from 2019 with the couple and their four daughters, and a picture with just Vanessa, 17-year-old Natalia, 4-year-old Bianka and 1-year-old Capri.
“Always Together, Never Apart Together Forever In Our Hearts. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Kobe, Vanessa, Natalia, Gianna, Bianka and Capri,” Vanessa, 38, captioned the series of holiday photos.
Kobe and Gianna were traveling to a basketball game when their helicopter crashed in Calabasas, Calif.
Vanessa has actively kept their memory alive. She previously posted a touching Valentine’s Day tribute and added a dog to the family for Father’s Day.
She penned a heartbreaking birthday message to Kobe in August as well, writing in part: “As much as I want to cry, I put a smile on my face to make our daughters days shine a little brighter. I’m not the strong one, they are. They’re strong and resilient. I’m sure you’re proud of them. They put a smile on my face everyday.”
Most recently, she got a new foot tattoo in October in honor of her family.
