The most recent point out occurred after Kobe’s daughter, Natalia Diamante Bryant shared a black-and-white image on her Instagram page.

Vanessa Bryant and her daughter Natalia had previously resorted to blocking several Kobe and Gianna fan pages in order to process their grief correctly.

The picture which showed the 17-year-old smiling as she looked away from the camera quickly garnered over 300,000 likes and a thousand comments.

While one person stated that she looked “soooo beautiful,” another noted that she looked “so much” like her late father. A third fan claimed that they saw “Kobe Bryant in her,” and a fourth wrote “Kobe’s whole face.”

The much-talked-about post comes just months after an insider informed People that Kobe’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, “is so grateful to have her kids and family around” following the deaths of Kobe and their daughter Gianna in January.

The beloved Black Mamba and his 13-year-old daughter were among the nine people that died in a helicopter crash that took place in Calabasas, California. The pair were said to be flying to a basketball game where Gianna was slated to play.

During a FaceTime conversation with ESPN's Rece Davis, Vanessa ensured that she paid tribute to her late husband. The 38-year-old who was joined by Natalia said:

“It's an incredible accomplishment and honor, and we're extremely proud of him. Every accomplishment that he had as an athlete was a stepping stone to be here.”

While stating that her family was grateful for fans’ support, she made it clear that they needed to be allowed to grieve in private. That wouldn’t be the first time that the mother-of-four would publicly address her pain as she has remained open about her grieving process since the unfortunate demise of her husband and daughter.
