Vanessa Bryant took to social media with an emotional tribute to her late husband and the father of her children, Kobe Bryant.
It's been months since Kobe Bryant passed on along with his daughter, Gianna. On Sunday, the late icon's wife, Vanessa Bryant, honored him with a lovely family photo for Father's day celebration.
She captioned the post, "Happy Father's Day to the BEST daddy in the world, we miss you so much. We love you forever and always. Love Nani, Gigi, BB, Koko and VB."
She ended the captions with hashtags that read, "Best of the best," and "Girl dad." The photo Vanessa posted featured Kobe seated between his three beautiful girls while holding a crying Capri — she was a newborn at the time.
Vanessa also posted a picture of the late NBA star posing with his four daughters, Natalia, Gianna, Bianka, and Capri Bryant.
The post comes a day after Vanessa celebrated Capri's first birthday. She shared a photo that featured her late husband cradling their infant daughter in what was reportedly her first photoshoot.
Vanessa has been doing her best to keep her family together while keeping his legacy alive.
In the emotional snap, Vanessa, Capri and the late Kobe were all dressed up in white ensembles. In a tender gesture, Kobe held Capri with his left arm as he and his wife gazed down at their daughter with love and adoration.
For the birthday celebrations, Capri appeared to have had a small party among her loved ones. Her birthday was filled with lots of sweet treats, fun gifts and enjoyable family time.
Kobe and his wife welcomed Capri on June 20, 2019. Kobe took his Instagram page, following her birth, to announce the joyful news of her arrival.
Kobe and his daughter, Gigi Bryant, died on January 26, 2020, when the helicopter they boarded crashed into the hills in the Calabasas region of Los Angeles.
At their time of death, the legendary athlete was aged 41 and his daughter, Gigi was only 13-years-old. Besides them, seven other people, most of whom were Gianna's basketball teammates, also died in the crash.
Since his death, Vanessa has been doing her best to keep her family together while keeping his legacy alive.
She has reportedly been working with lawmakers concerning the Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant Helicopter Safety Act to ensure that the same kind of accident won't occur to others. Rest on Kobe and Gigi.
