Gianna Bryant won’t ever be forgotten.
For what would have been her sixteenth birthday, Vanessa and Natalia Bryant took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late teen in a sequence of posts. The 39-year-old momma shared a video that she narrated that includes candy sketches of Gigi and her late husband Kobe Bryant finished in an analogous model as his award-winning animated brief Pricey Basketball. She mentioned:
“Dear Gianna, from the first time you imagined winning a WNBA championship, I knew one thing was real — you were special. You came from greatness, but it was never about what you inherited. It was about what you gave to others. When someone stands up for gender equality, I see you standing up alongside them. And every time someone plays her hardest, I know that’s you on the court. Love you always, basketball.”
“Happy 16th birthday baby girl. I love you Gigi! We miss you so much.”
In the meantime, Natalia shared a throwback image of herself kissing her little sister on the cheek as she smiles:
“happy sweet sixteen my dearest gigi I love you to the moon and back forever & always.”
We’re holding the Bryant household in our ideas throughout what we will think about have to be a troublesome day.
