Congratulations, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant!
Former pro-basketball player Kobe Bryant and his wife of 15 years, Vanessa, welcomed their third daughter together, according to People. No other details have been released at this time. The newborn joins sisters Natalia Diamante, 13, and Gianna Maria-Onore, 10.
The sports star and his wife announced they were expecting back in July with a cheeky shot of a little onesie reading “Baby Mamba” (a play on Kobe’s nickname, Black Mamba), a glittery red bow, and a set of baby-sized red-and-black Kobe Bryant sneakers. “Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #Blessed #BabyMamba #Thankful,” the proud father wrote on Instagram.
The exciting announcement came at a perfect moment for the longtime couple—Bryant had effectively hung up his jersey just a few months prior. We see a lot of daddy-daughter time in store for the newest member of the Bryant clan.
Will Bryant’s baby girl grow up to be a Laker like her famous dad? Only time will tell …
