Vanessa Bryant is putting on a brave face while the Bryant girls celebrate their first holiday season without Kobe and Gigi.
Vanessa Bryant and her daughters are keeping Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant‘s memories alive in their first Christmas without them. As the one year anniversary of their tragic passings nears, Vanessa is staying strong her her girls. She shared a black and white photo of herself, Natalia, Capri and Bianka, alongside last year’s family photo with Gigi and Kobe also in the picture. In the days leading up to Christmas, Vanessa posted individual professional photos of her daughters, including Gianna.
On Christmas Eve, she revealed two gorgeous family photos — one of just the girls and another of the entire family. “Always Together, Never Apart Together Forever In Our Hearts. Kobe, Vanessa, Natalia, Gianna, Bianka and Capri,” Vanessa captioned her photo. Kobe’s widow has received an endless amount of love and support from her close circle of friends as she misses her late daughter and husband this holiday season.
Khloe Kardashian sent a Gingerbread House to Vanessa and made sure that the late Lakers legend and the couple’s late daughter were there with Vanessa and her three daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka Bella, 4, and one-year-old Capri, in sugary spirit. Vanessa shared a series of Dec. 22 Instagram stories videos, giving a tour of gingerbread house Khloe sent her, as Bianka helped narrate.
Hours later, florist to the stars (and primary Kar-Jenner florist) Jeff Leatham personally delivered a Christmas tree made up of red roses to Vanessa’s home. It had green leaves and twinkling red lights between the blooms, and four heart-shaped gifts in rose covered boxes for Vanessa, Natalia, Bianka and Capri under the rose tree. Vanessa shared the video to her IG stories on Dec. 23, and she could be heard thanking Jeff through tears of emotion over the gorgeous floral structure.
We are sending all the love and light to the Bryant family this holiday season.
