For Natalia Bryant's 18 years, mom Vanessa has decided to post some great photos on Instagram
Natalia Bryant, the 18-year-old daughter of Kobe
Vanessa Bryant wanted to make the birthday of her daughter Natalia Diamante, who turns 18, really special. An important milestone, also celebrated in memory of father Kobe and his sister Gianna, both tragically died almost a year ago.
A few days after the dramatic anniversary – last January 26 the great basketball player and his 13-year-old daughter died in a plane crash – Vanessa decided to give her eldest daughter a beautiful surprise: on Instagram she shared a touching dedication of love, accompanied by six splendid photos that portray Natalia in all her young and fresh splendor.
“Dear Natalia, happy birthday! Mom and para are so proud of the young woman you have become. You showed great strength and great elegance in what was the most difficult year of our lives. Thanks for helping me with your little sisters. You are an incredible big sister and a splendid example to many people. Thank you for being kind, polite and generous in whatever you do. You have no idea how happy and proud mom and dad are to have you as a daughter. We love you now and forever. Happy 18th birthday to our eldest daughter Natalia, our princess ”.
With these splendid words, Vanessa wanted to dedicate a special thought to an enchanting girl, who in these long and difficult months has been able to face enormous pain and remain close to her family, making her younger sisters feel all her warmth – Bianka Bella , who has just turned 4, and Capri Kobe, who will blow out its first two candles in June.
The tender photos published by her mother show Natalia in various moments of her life: there are some very current ones, such as the beautiful black and white shots belonging to a photo shoot – the same from which the image that portrays the girl was extrapolated with a lovely denim dress, used by Vanessa for her sweet dedication to her daughter. Others, on the other hand, are photos coming directly from the family memory album.
There is a wonderful shot that sees a tiny Natalia in the arms of father Kobe, and another that sees the entire family on the Lakers field as protagonist (at the time the eldest was still an only child). Enchanting portraits, which arouse great emotion today.
