18-month-old Natalia looked gorgeous, cradled in her mother’s arms as she looked at the camera. The little tot wore a jaguar print coat which she paired with a white head bow.

Her thick baby curls sat cutely atop her head, and she completed the outfit with white socks and black shoes. Vanessa, on the other hand, let her long curls fall down the side of her face. The caption of the post read:

“My mini. You were 18 months @nataliabryant ?❤️(not my pic).”

Recently, Vanessa gushed over how cute Natalia looked when the teenager posted an image of herself on Instagram. She talked about how beautiful she looked with and without makeup, saying that her dad, the late Kobe Bryant, would have been proud of her.

Natalia has been accepted in almost all the schools she applied to.


Natalia recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models. She talked about how she was excited to join the agency as she has always been interested in fashion since a very young age.

She continued by saying that she has a love for the industry and ever since she wanted to model. Natalia continued by saying that the signing was an excellent opportunity for her to learn and express herself creatively.


The mother-daughter duo recently had a tattoo session with celebrity artist Nikko Hurtado. Vanessa opted to have “Mambacita” written on her forearm as a tribute to her daughter Gianna, who died alongside her husband, Kobe

Natalia’s tattoo was on her middle finger with the word “muse.” She opted for the word in honor of her father’s documentary, which was done back in 2015.

For the teenager who would soon be leaving home to college, Natalia has been accepted in almost all the schools she applied to. 

Her mother congratulated her for getting into Loyola Marymount University. However, she said the school was quite far, but when she got into the University of California Irvine, Vanessa was excited, saying it was closer to home.
