Vanessa Bryant and her daughters are paying tribute to Gianna in the sweetest way.
Throughout the past week, Vanessa, 39, has been sharing photos from her two-week family holiday in Europe with daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, four, and Capri, two.
One post, shared on Friday, showed a shot of a young Natalia and Gianna on the Italian island of Capri — followed by a current shot of Bianka and Capri sitting on the same bench.
“Missing my baby girl, Gigi,” she captioned her post. “My #2 Mambacita.”
“‘Spaghetti can be eaten most successfully if you inhale it like a vacuum cleaner’~Sophia Loren Then wash it down with limoncello ~ VB,” she wrote alongside a photo of her sipping the lemony spirit.
Gianna tragically died at the age of 13 alongside dad Kobe Bryant and seven others in a helicopter crash on January 26, 2020.
Since her loss, Vanessa has made it her mission to keep her husband and daughter’s memory alive. In July, Vanessa and her daughters honoured their late father Kobe and Gigi during a Women’s NBA All-Star Game in Las Vegas.
“Capri repping our Gigi #MAMBACITA at the @wnba All Star Game #2,” the proud mum wrote her Instagram post at the time. In another she wrote, “B.B. repping Daddy. #8 #24 @wnba All Star Game.”
“Lying in bed crying isn’t going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again,” she said. “But getting out of bed and pushing forward is going to make the day better for my girls and for me. So that’s what I do.”
