Natalia Bryant recently celebrated her milestone 18th birthday, and her mom's friend, La La Anthony, honored the special day with a sweet tribute that she shared on Instagram.


Alani "La La" Anthony, the wife of NBA player, Carmelo Anthony, has a very close relationship with Vanessa Bryant, whose daughter Natalia Diamante Bryant celebrated her 18th birthday on January 19.

To help ring in the major milestone, La La shared a series of photos and videos of herself and the birthday girl alongside a heartwarming message as she wished her a happy birthday.

La La's post featured several photos showing fun memories from different adventures that she has shared with Natalia, accompanied with a sweet tribute in the caption:

"You have grown into such a smart, beautiful, and kind hearted person. You light up every room you walk into. Love you."


In the photos, La La and Natalia's close relationship was evident as they posed together with beaming smiles. In one snap, the two are pictured in a pool with La La's son, Kiyan Anthony, 13.


In other pics, the two women enjoyed a day out on the water with Natalia's sister, Bianka, 4. The "Power" actress also shared a funny video of the crew doing a cool dance routine.


Looking at the birthday slideshow and other social media posts, it's evident that La La spends a lot of time with Natalia. Their activities range from making dance videos to outdoor sports fun.

In October last year, the "The Chi" actress and singer Ciara Wilson spent a day playing a football game with Natalia. Kiyan and Ciara's six-year-old son Future were also present for the backyard fun.

It will be one year since [Kobe] and his prodigy [Gianna] passed away on January 26.


Ciara is also close friends with Vanessa, who lost her husband, Kobe Bryant, and daughter, Gianna, in a devastating helicopter crash in January 2020. She and La La have been there for the family in so many ways.

While La La speaks to Vanessa daily, Ciara has documented her quality time with Vanessa and her kids. Recently, the girl pals went on a post-Christmas ski trip together with Natalia and Bianka.


As Vanessa celebrated her daughter's birthday with touching throwbacks featuring her late husband, she also mourned him and their daughter Gianna, especially ahead of their death anniversary.

It will be one year since the basketball icon and his prodigy passed away on January 26. Vanessa opened about the grieving process, urging others struggling with grief and heartbreaking loss to find a reason to live.
