Vanessa Bryant honors husband Kobe on what would’ve been his 43rd birthday
Vanessa Bryant will love Kobe Bryant “forever.”
On Monday, Aug. 23, what would have been the basketball legend’s 43rd birthday, Vanessa took to social media to honor Kobe’s legacy. Alongside a photo of the couple kissing after the Lakers’ 2000 NBA Championship win, Vanessa wrote;
“Happy birthday, Papi.” She also added, “Te Amo por siempre. Amor eterno,” which, translated to English, means, “I love you forever. Eternal love.”
It’s been just over a year since Kobe died in a helicopter crash alongside his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, and seven others. Since that time, Vanessa, along with daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 2, have continued to honor Kobe and Gigi.
