Natalia Bryant recently suffered the loss of her dad and sister, but she seems to be healing well as she appears to be surrounded by beautiful friends.

Natalia Bryant took to Instagram to celebrate her childhood friend, Jas, on her birthday. She uploaded two photos of them with the simple caption:

"Happy Bday, Jas!!! Together Since Day One????."

The first photo slide showed the girls at a younger age as they held onto each other on a busy road. Both girls were sporting orange hoodies with jeans and sneakers.

Their curly hair stood out as the picture was taken at night and mainly caught their back view. Bryant seemed taller as she turned sideways with a broad smile on her face.

The second photo showed the girls at the beachside with the beautiful sea and blue sky as a backdrop. Several people relaxing at the beach could be seen in the background as the girls held each other.

Natalia wore a red polka dot thin-strapped dress while Jas wore a sleeveless white flare dress with a fabric sash. They seemed to have their hairs in similar styles, braids.

They had what seemed to be matching orange bracelets on as they smiled at the camera with their foreheads leaning against each other in a way that spoke of true friendship.

The 17-year-old has been through really tough times recently as she lost her father, Kobe Byrant, and sister, Gianna Bryant, in a ghastly helicopter crash in January.

The duo was on their way to a youth basketball game with other players and parents from the Mamba Sports Academy girls' team when the helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, due to poor weather conditions.

The eldest Bryant daughter took to Instagram to celebrate her late father and sister on their 42nd and 14th birthdays, respectively. The tribute stirred up a ton of emotions as it was really touching.

She shared that she missed both their smiles and that she knew they were looking down on her from heaven. She also added that she misses the late-night movie drives with her dad and that she loves them both.

Natalia seems to be forming a stronger bond with her father's mentee, Sabrina Ionescu, as the two recorded a TikTok video together. 

The basketball player had promised in a tribute to Kobe to continue his legacy while thanking him for believing in her and being her friend. She seems to have extended that friendship to his daughter.
