On January 26, 2020, the world came to a stop when it was announced that Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna had died alongside seven others in a helicopter crash at Calabasas, California.

While the world lost a basketball legend, Vanessa lost her husband and daughter. Undoubtedly, the tragic loss came with an unexplainable amount of pain for the mom of four.

However, despite the grief, Vanessa has exercised an impressive level of strength in the past year. It is safe to say the 38-year-old is well on her way to healing.
