Kobe Bryant's widow Vanessa celebrated their third child Bianka Bella Bryant's 4th birthday for the first time without her husband. Take a look at the special tribute.
Vanessa Bryant made sure that her daughter Bianka Bella felt extra special on her birthday by showering her with blessings and a whole lot of love with cute social media posts.
Taking to Instagram, the mother-of-four shared a sweet snap of the bubbly young girl to let the world know that it was her day. In the caption, she wished Bianka a happy birthday.
THE CUTE BIRTHDAY GIRL
Vanessa is grateful for her daughter, who fills her family's lives with sunshine. She gave the little one love on behalf of her sisters Capri and Natalia, as well as her late father Kobe and late sister Gianna.
The photo was loaded with cuteness, with Bianka flaunting a tropical swimsuit with leafy prints. She had a big sun hat on which she balanced on the head with her hands. With her short hair let loose, she looked away from the camera and smiled.
Vanessa then shared a photo of Bianka posing in front of a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Wearing a white top with black prints, she gave out a precious smile and showed her little teeth.
The birthday post came a week after Vanessa marked the 21st anniversary of meeting her late husband.
THE LADIES HAD FUN
Bianka's hair was spray-painted pink in the photo, and she looked like the Little Mermaid, except that the party was Cinderella-themed, according to Vanessa's pal La La Anthony's post.
Meanwhile, Ciara, too, shared a few snaps from the day on her Instagram. Her daughter Sienna hugged Bianka in the first photo. The second photo saw Sienna, Bianka, and Capri posing together amid a balloon dome.
This is the first time that Bianka celebrated her birthday without her father and sister, Gianna, who were among the nine people who tragically died during a helicopter crash in Calabasas on January 26, 2020.
The birthday post came a week after Vanessa marked the 21st anniversary of meeting her late husband. Sharing a photo of herself and Kobe, she revealed that it was love at first sight for them.
IT HAS BEEN AN EVENTFUL YEAR
After meeting on November 27, 1999, the lovebirds walked down the aisle in 2001. This year has been pretty rough for Vanessa and her family, who are still getting used to living without Kobe and Gianna.
Despite the pain, Vanessa continues to mark milestones she would have shared with her beloved husband. She even celebrated his birthday in August and also paid tribute to Gianna on her birthday in May.
