Kobe Bryant’s wife pays tribute

Kobe Bryant was married to Vanessa Laine Bryant since 2001. The couple has four kids together.

On Wednesday, Vanessa broke her silence following her husband and daughter’s demise via a heartbreaking tribute on Instagram.

Vanessa shared a photo of their entire family and captioned:

There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now… They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon.

In her post, Kobe Bryant’s widow expressed her gratitude for the incredible support she received after her husband and daughter’s passing.

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. To honor our Team Mamba family, the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up the MambaOnThree Fund to help support the other families affected by this tragedy. To donate, please go to MambaOnThree.org.

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s love story

Kobe fell in love with Vanessa when she was 17 and he was 21. Eventually, their young love transformed into an amazing, true, and strong feeling.

After 6 months of dating, Kobe proposed to Vanessa. The lovebirds tied the knot in 2001 in a beautiful ceremony.

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant remained supportive of each other no matter what. Together they came through Vanessa’s miscarriage in 2004 and Kobe’s sexual assault scandal.

Two months ago, Kobe and Vanessa celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. The NBA star was not shy to tell about his love out loud:

On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen… I love you my mamacita per sempre.

Kobe Bryant was an incredible person. He was loved and admired by millions. We can only imagine his family’s feelings after they lost their patriarch.

We keep praying for Vanessa Bryant amid her doubled grief. She lost not just her lifetime partner, but their precious daughter. Million of hugs to Kobe Bryant’s family! Please, just stay strong!
