It’s been less than three months since the death of Kobe Bryant and 13-year-old Gianna Bryant — and yesterday was the first Easter Vanessa Bryant spent without her husband, and her 3 daughters, Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 9 months, spent without their father. The holiday also marked baby Capri’s very first Easter.
The loving mom shared an adorable photo of herself with 3-year-old Bianka. Vanessa wore a bright pink dress with a camera over her shoulder and can be seen kneeling down hugging Bianka who was carrying a white Easter egg basket. And in another photo, Natalia smiled as she held younger sister Capri who was dressed to impress in all pink, including an adorable pink bow and pink moccasins.
The little ones also had some Easter fun cracking open a jumbo-sized chocolate Easter egg with a little help from mom. Vanessa posted a short video of the two sisters captioning, “Easter Treats” that had everyone gushing in the comments.
“Look at those smiles – love it,” one friend commented.
The holiday comes almost three months after Kobe and Gianna tragically died in a helicopter crash alongside seven other victims in Calabasas, California.
Vanessa spoke about her late husband and daughter Giana at a memorial held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
“Gianna Bryant is an amazingly sweet and gentle soul. She was always thoughtful,” she said of her daughter. “She was daddy’s girl but I know she loved her mamma. She was one of my very best friends.”
Vanessa then spoke about late husband Kobe: “He was the most amazing husband. Kobe loved me more than I could ever express or put into words. We loved each other with our whole beings, two perfectly imperfect people making a beautiful family and raising our sweet and amazing girls.”
