Vanessa Bryant is one proud mom as she shared a picture of her charming daughters, Bianka and Capri, dressed in luxurious outfits. See the little girls' adorable snap.
The late NBA icon Kobe Bryant's widow, Vanessa Bryant, recently gushed about her two little daughters, Bianka Bella, 4, and one-year-old Capri Bryant, who donned stylish clothes in a photo she posted on Instagram.
The photo showed Bianka and Capri smiling while holding their hands. They looked chic in flower-printed dresses from the brand Dolce & Gabbana.

The girls wore the outfit during their father's recent induction to the Basketball Hall of Fame. They also sported ribbons on their hair. Vanessa wrote:
Thousands of fans adored the little girls' charming photo and noted that Capri looked like her late sister, Gianna, also known as "Gigi." Another follower expressed, "Beautiful! Bianka looks so much like Kobe."
The two little girls, who recently toured their father's Hall of Fame exhibit, often wore matching clothes in pictures taken by Vanessa. They previously wore matching Los Angeles Lakers jersey shirts in honor of their late father.
Bianka wore a number 8 black jersey while Capri donned a number 24 purple-yellow jersey. Vanessa, who is also a mother to her 18-year-old daughter, Natalia, called her girls "Lil' Mambacitas."
The "Lil' Mambacitas" reference originated from Gigi's basketball nickname "Mambacita." Besides sharing Gigi's nickname with her sisters, Vanessa also launched a clothing line to honor her late daughter on the latter's birthday.
Gigi and Kobe were among the nine persons killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, in January 2020. She was 13 while Kobe was 41 when the unfortunate incident happened.
In a previous interview, the 39-year-old mother opened up about how her three other daughters helped her throughout her unimaginable pain and grief after losing Gigi and her husband.
Kobe was a five-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and an 18-time NBA All-Star.
Vanessa described her daughters as resilient, respectful, and kind. The girls make her smile despite the pain and give her strength, even though she feels weak most days.
The grieving mother admitted she's not strong enough, and there are days she would cry hard, but whenever she sees them, she would remind herself to soldier on.
Recently, Vanessa and Natalia attended the Tip-Off Celebration and Awards Gala, during which they received Kobe's red 2020 Hall of Fame jacket and ring. The gala was a preliminary event before Kobe's induction.
Kobe was a five-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and an 18-time NBA All-Star. The ex-athlete played under the LA Lakers team for 20 years before retiring in 2016.
