Congrats to Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa. The couple are expecting their third child. The retired NBA baller shared the news on Instagram, revealing that they are expecting a daughter.
In November 1999, 21-year-old Bryant met 17-year-old Vanessa Laine while she was working as a background dancer on the Tha Eastsidaz music video “G’d Up”.
Bryant was in the building working on his debut musical album. The two began dating and became engaged just six months later in May 2000. They married on April 18, 2001. The Bryants’ first child, a daughter named Natalia Diamante Bryant, was born in 2003. Their second daughter, Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, was born in 2006. Congrats to them!
