The new baby girl was reportedly born in the Los Angeles area earlier this week, joining the retired Los Angeles Laker Kobe, Vanessa and the couple's daughters Gianna, 10, and Natalia, 13.

We don't have a name yet — but we do know it's definitely a girl, as Bryant previously posted an Instagram pic of a onesie reading "Baby Mamba," a glittery red bow and a tiny pair of Nike Kobe sneakers. "Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!!" Bryant wrote in the caption.

"I have no doubt that the fourth baby would be a boy after 3 girls it's just has to be a boy I just know it please don't stop until you get a son Kobe," posted one fan.

"We need him for the NBA," he added.
