Vanessa Bryant posted a touching photo with her three daughters celebrating her birthday. The girls had purchased a slew of flowers and pinatas to celebrate the festive day.
Since the sudden deaths of Kobe and Gianna Bryant, Vanessa has made many touching Instagram posts about missing her husband and daughter. And with her 38th birthday falling on Tuesday, she made several posts on the social media platform this week leading up to the big day. In her most recent update, she showed how the family celebrated.
Vanessa posted a snap with her three daughters, Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 10 months, standing in the courtyard of their home. There were two palm trees behind them that were adorned with multicolored hanging pinatas. A fountain behind them had several bouquets of red roses with light pink carnations around it, with its inside also filled with red and pink flowers.
Vanessa wore a dark blue University of Connecticut sweatshirt and black tights. She leaned her head on Natalia’s shoulder and held Capri in her right arm. Bianka stood in front of them while holding onto her older sister’s leg. All four of them had big smiles on their faces.
Vanessa wrote in her caption that her daughters were responsible for the beautiful decorations that celebrated their mother’s birthday and Cinco de Mayo.
Many of the 38-year-old’s 14.1 million followers noticed the snap as it went viral with over 3.2 million likes in just over 18 hours after going live. There were more than 43,000 comments on the adorable family photo as Vanessa’s replies were flooded with well-wishes and emoji. Gabrielle Union left a series of yellow-heart emoji in the comments section, while many other replies were accompanied by heart emoji. Fans and friends responded to how gorgeous the decorations looked.
“They did so good!!!!” LaLa Anthony wrote, adding some heart and kiss emoji.
“Happy Happy Birthday @vanessabryant hope you had a great YOU day,” a follower wrote.
“Surrounded in love – your girls did amazing,” Adrienne Bosh replied with a heart-eyes and flower emoji.
“This is so beautiful,” the official account for ESPN’s SportsCenter commented, along with three heart emoji.
