Natalia Bryant and Vanessa Bryant danced in a short Instagram video with WNBA player Sabrina Ionescu before bursting into laughter.
Amid a difficult year, it is certainly a sight to see the Bryant family having fun and sharing laughs through various TikTok dance challenges. Recently, Natalia Bryant has been posting videos of her dances with her siblings and friends.
A few days ago, the 17-year-old shared yet another clip that included her mom, Vanessa Bryant, and WNBA star, Sabrina Ionescu showing synchronized dance moves.

THE DANCING TRIO
The three girls stood beside each other as they simultaneously showed their dance skills to a song about twerking. “It’s the making my mom laugh for me ♥️ #itstheruffleskirtforme,” Natalia captioned the post, referring to her mom’s outfit.
A few seconds after Sabrina, Natalia, and Vanessa tried to twerk to the song, the three burst out in laughter, ending the dance routine. By the looks of it, the girls found themselves laughing because of Vanessa’s skirt bouncing up and down.
FUN WITH FRIENDS
The Bryants have been enjoying the company of their friends in recent weeks, including Vanessa’s besties, La La Anthony and Ciara. Two weeks ago, the singer shared a glimpse of their football activity with Natalia, La La’s son, Kiyan, and Ciara’s son, Future.
Last May 1, on what would have been Gianna’s 14th birthday, the former Lakers star sent a gold and white cake with butterflies to the Bryant household.
In her post, the “Body Party” artist huddled with Natalia while La La instructed the team on their strategy. Natalia also shared the clip on her Instagram alongside the caption, “The Girls Taking The W…. As We Should.”
LIFE AFTER A TRAGIC LOSS
Vanessa and her kids have been through a lot this year after losing her husband and their father, Kobe Bryant, and their daughter and sister, Gianna. Life after a loss is a challenge one could only imagine, but Vanessa tried and is still trying to take things one day at a time.
Fortunately, the NBA star’s wife is surrounded by good company that tries to lift her spirit, especially amid a global pandemic. After restrictions lessened, the Bryants enjoyed a summer getaway with Kobe’s good friend and former teammate, Pau Gasol and his family.
Vanessa and her kids also decided to add a furry friend into their family, a French bulldog whom they named Bobby. Their gray canine has since brought many smiles to their lives.
PAU GASOL’S ACTS OF KINDNESS
As one of Kobe’s closest friends, Gasol has helped Vanessa and the kids in several ways after the tragedy. Last May 1, on what would have been Gianna’s 14th birthday, the former Lakers star sent a gold and white cake with butterflies to the Bryant household.
He also paid tribute to the younger Bryant with a Twitter post of her name and the moniker, Mambacita. Gasol and Kobe played alongside each other from 2008 to 2014, winning two championships together.

His love for the late athlete and his daughter showed even more when he honored them by naming his first child with his wife, Cat, after Gigi -- Elisabet Gianna Gasol.
