She shared a photo of them sharing a kiss after the legendary baller won one of his five championships. “Happy Birthday, Papi. Te Amo por siempre. Amor Eterno,” she wrote in the heartfelt post.  

Kobe’s oldest daughter Natalia also shared her own tribute accompanied with a throwback picture of them at a post-game press conference. “Happy Birthday Daddy,” she wrote. 


Vanessa Bryant has been working hard to protect her family and Kobe’s legacy ever since his tragic helicopter crash in January 2020.

She has gone against the LAPD, Nike, and even her own mother all for the sake of her Black Mamba and Mambacita. 

May they continue to rest in peace, along with the other 7 passengers who also lost their lives during the crash.

Happy Birthday Kobe!
