Vanessa Bryant celebrated Mother's Day differently this year, as it was her first without her husband and daughter Gianna by her side. This time, she had her eldest daughter Natalia and their two toddler daughters Bianka and Capri with her.

Despite going through such a traumatic experience earlier this year, Vanessa has shown immense strength and courage through it all. She draws a lot of her strength from her three daughters, and during Mother's Day, they made sure to shower her with a lot of love, too.

FIRST BIRTHDAY WITHOUT KOBE

Just a couple of days prior, Vanessa celebrated her 38th birthday with her three daughters. They had a simple Cinco De Mayo-themed celebration at home, where they enjoyed each other's company.

Back in January, Vanessa and her three children had to suffer a painful loss when Kobe and Gianna Bryant passed away in a helicopter crash while on the way to a basketball tournament.
