Natalia’s mother, Vanessa Bryant proudly shared the photo on her Instagram and gushed, “my babies” in her caption.

The photo featured a smiling Natalia beautifully dressed in a short floral dress and standing in front of an image of her late family. The mural was of Kobe kissing Gianna’s head which had a halo over it.

Natalia was by Vanessa’s side after she gave her speech during the public memorial for Kobe. They were seen holding hands as they walked among the crowd.

Natalia is the eldest of Kobe and Vanessa’s four daughters. Gigi, 13, was the second, followed by Bianka, 3, and Capri, 8 months. Fondly called Nani by her parents, Natalia turned 17 in January and Kobe paid tribute to her on social media. He shared a photo of her and wrote,

“Happy Birthday my baby. I love you beyond measure. You will always be my little Principessa #17."

Unlike Gianna who took after her father’s passion for basketball, Natalia is an exceptional volleyball player and Kobe supported it too. In fact, Natalia played for Mamba Volleyball Club which was established by her father. Kobe would also be present in all her games cheering her on.

But Natalia is also a lot like her mother. She inherited her mother’s beauty and flair for fashion. Her mother knows it and even shared a photo of them in January referring to her as her "twin."

It’s been six weeks since Kobe and Gianna died from a tragic helicopter crash. Though Vanessa and her remaining daughters are still reeling from their deaths, it’s good to know that they’re trying to move on.

Natalia was by Vanessa’s side after she gave her heartbreaking speech during the public memorial for Kobe. They were seen holding hands as they walked among the crowd.

It’s a good thing Vanessa and Natalia have each other to lean on during this difficult time. And it’s a relief to see Natalia smile amid their heartbreak.
