Aside from being an NBA legend, if there's one thing that Kobe Bryant is best at, that is being a father to his three children. Recently, the 39-year-old basketball icon shared a beautiful photo of his grown-up daughter Nani on her 15th birthday.
It wasn't so long ago that we saw her as a pretty little girl being cuddled by her famous basketball superstar dad on the court.
In celebration of Nani's birthday last January, the proud dad shared a throwback picture of little Natalia rocking a white and red t-shirt, orange watch and her curls tied up in a tight bun as she clutched a plushie while resting on her dad's arms.
The NBA superstar captioned the photo:
“#timehaswings can't believe my baby girl is 11 today!! Happy Birthday, Nani. We love you to the moon and back. To the moon and back.”
The above photo was spotted on a fan’s page and by looking at the picture, Nani is growing up into a beautiful girl.
A few years ago, young Natalia had the chance of selling her Girl Scout cookies to the 44th U.S. President Barack Obama in the White House Oval office.
“I will never forget the day our little Natalia sold Girl Scout cookies to @barackobama in the Oval Office. Happy Birthday to a great leader and a great muse,” wrote Kobe after sharing a throwback picture of the iconic moment.
And today, the pretty little girl Nani looks like this, as shown in the above picture.
She's all grown up and absolutely radiant at 15, and Kobe couldn't contain his fondness for the girl as he wrote this:
“Happy Birthday to our angel Natalia. I remember the days when you would sit on my lap at post-game press conferences as if it was yesterday. You are a true blessing, baby. We love you more than you could ever imagine.”
Recently, the Bryant family went on a vacation around Paris, and Kobe, who deactivated the comment section on his Instagram account, shared several photos of his stunning wife and daughters posing in front and inside of the Louvre, with some paintings and in Disneyland Paris.
