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 accident in January, posted two family portraits: a 2019 photo with the couple and their four daughters, and a photo with only 17-year-old Vanessa Natalia old, Bianka 4 years old and Capri 1 year old.
“Always together, never separated forever in our hearts. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Kobe, Vanessa, Natalia, Gianna, Bianka and Capri ”, Vanessa, 38, captioned the holiday photo series.
Kobe and Gianna were traveling to a basketball game when their helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California.
Vanessa actively kept her memory alive. Previously, she posted a touching tribute to Valentine’s Day and added a dog to the family on Father’s Day.
She wrote a touching birthday message to Kobe in August too, 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 am not the strong one, they are. They are strong and resilient. I’m sure you are proud of them. They put a smile on my face every day. “
Most recently, she got a new foot tattoo in October in honor of her family.
