Kobe and Vanessa Bryant had four children together, Natalia, Bianka, Capri, and Gianna, during their nearly two-decade marriage. Gigi, who was only 13 years old at the time, died alongside her father. On what would have been their 21st wedding anniversary, Vanessa Bryant is commemorating her late husband, Kobe Bryant.

She posted a throwback photo of the two with a meaningful message. Vanessa posted a snapshot of herself and Kobe from their younger days on Instagram, paying tribute to the love the two had enjoyed over the years.

I love you forever, baby. Happy Anniversary @KobeBryant #21.

The Bryants married on April 18, 2001, therefore this would have been Kobe and Vanessa’s 21st wedding anniversary. It’s been almost two years since Kobe died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, CA, along with eight other people, including his daughter.


Vanessa has been doing everything she can to keep Mamba’s name and legacy alive. She recently stated that the long-standing cooperation between Kobe and Nike, which had been momentarily halted last year, had been restored, opening the way for the Swoosh brand to release the “Mambacita Sweet Sixteen” sneaker.
