Vanessa Bryant, the wife of former Lakers champion, Kobe Bryant, shared an adorable image of their youngest child, Capri, and fans couldn't stop themselves from gushing on the tot who they claimed is her dad's look-alike.
Vanessa's recent update showed that she's a loving mother to her kids. In the post, Capri seated comfortably on her mom's lap, and the toddler who rocked a cute cheetah attire seemed distracted as she looked away from the camera.
The late basketball's wife, who planted a kiss on her daughter's head, wrote a heartfelt caption under the post: "I love you Koko Bean."
A lot of comments came from Vanessa's friends and fans. A fan hinted that there is a striking resemblance between baby Capri and her late father by posting, "MINI KOBE" in the comment section.
Another fan wrote: "I'm impressed," while the other comments settled on admiring the gorgeous toddler. Kobe's widow may be holding it good on the outside, but she is also sharing very personal details concerning her family.
The 38-year-old shared a letter addressed to her from Kobe.
Before posting a picture of her daughter, she showed online followers a book her late husband wrote in her honor. As a tribute to the deceased, she shared the fictional story, "Epoca the Tree of Ecrof: Islands of the Gods," created by Kobe and written by Ivy Claire on her IG page. Vanessa wrote:
"Always learning from the best. My Boo-Boo, My Dreamer."
It appears that Kobe was a skilled basketball star and a writer. The 41-year-old wrote other books before his passing. They include: "Legacy and the Queen," "The Wizenard Series: Training Camp" and "The Wizenard Series: Season One."
He was also a great family man who loved his girls unconditionally. During Vanessa's memorial speech, she revealed that her late husband was "the MVP of girl dads...he always told the girls how beautiful and smart they are."
After the tragic news of the death of her daughter and husband, she proceeded to sue the helicopter company with allegations that the pilot, Ara Zoboyan, wasn't professional enough and may have caused the deaths on board.
Kobe and Gianna Bryant were not the only passengers on the flight; about seven others lost their lives in the unfortunate incident. Vanessa and her man would have celebrated nineteen years as a couple on April 18.
However, one thing that satisfactorily keeps her going is knowing that he loved her dearly. The 38-year-old shared a letter addressed to her from Kobe. She discovered it four months after his death.
