Vanessa also uploaded a photo of herself and her daughter Bianka posing in front of their beautiful tree. In a second photo, the mother and daughter were joined by Leatham for a group shot.

Earlier in the year, Kobe and Gianna died in a tragic helicopter crash in Calabasas, Los Angeles. The accident also claimed the lives of seven other people who were traveling with the NBA star and his daughter.

On April 18, the couple should have celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary, but friends made sure it was a memorable day for Vanessa.

Nowadays, Vanessa wears a customized diamond ring on her wedding finger with Kobe's name spelled out on it to keep him close at all times. Meanwhile, Vanessa and her daughters also got a pleasant surprise from Khloé Kardashian.

The reality TV star's treat to the Bryant family came in the form of a gingerbread house. The thoughtful Christmas gift paid tribute to Kobe and Gianna with their names written on the house's roof.
