In a recent post Instagram, Jaleel White of "Family Matters" and his daughter Samaya wore matching outfits while standing next to Kobe and Gigi Bryant's murals.


Jaleel White and his daughter Samaya have a beautiful relationship, and he never fails to show this on social media. He recently posted a picture of himself and his mini-me donning matching outfits while posing next to Kobe and Gigi Bryant's murals.

Taking to Instagram, White shared five different pictures of himself with Samaya while also penning a beautiful message about the relationship and love he has for her.

In the first image, the father-daughter duo who wore matching Lakers outfits struck the same pose as they rested one leg on the wall with their hands folded in front of them.

The pair looked lovely in the black and gold Lakers outfit, which had gold labelings along the side of the sleeves. While White wore a sweatshirt, Samaya looked dapper in a hoodie. The caption was a beautiful message which started with White saying:

"Always thought I wanted a son until she arrived. She loves the game just the same if not more ..."


He continued by saying that simple outings such as the ones they take have gotten them through these last months while also making him appreciate the obvious things more.

The 44-year-old entertainer admitted that the most valuable thing next to good health was time, and the time he spent together with his daughter was priceless.

The pair have been entangled in bitter squabbles over the years.


White also paid tribute to Kobe and Gigi Bryant's memories by using the hashtags: #ripkobeandgianna #mambamentality #mambaforever #lakersnation.

He added that he and Samaya had worn their masks for those who were concerned about their COVID-19 protection measures and only took them off to take the pictures. He concluded by saying:

"This evening was about remembering Kobe and not remembering CoVid ?? We are safe."


The other pictures in White's post showed himself and Samaya striking different poses, and there was one with Samaya holding a basketball that had been signed by the late Kobe Bryant.

White and his daughter's lovers took to the comments section to share their thoughts about the beautiful girl dad relationship he had with Samaya, with most acknowledging that it was adorable and special.

White and his ex-wife Bridget Hardy welcomed Samaya in 2006, after which they divorced. The pair have been entangled in bitter squabbles over the years, but things seem to be better between them of late.

Kobe and his daughter Gigi were among nine people who lost their lives in an unfortunate helicopter crash that happened last year near California's Calabasas hillside.
