Vanessa Bryant celebrated her first mother's day without Kobe and Gianna, spending it with her three other daughters at home. 

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.
