Vanessa Bryant widow of NBA Legend Kobe Bryant begins celebrations for her first major holiday without her husband and daughter Gianna.
The 37-year-old shared a touching video of hers and Kobes daughters, Bianka, 3 and Capri, 9 months, opening an Easter Egg with candies, gifted by floral designer Jeff Leatham. Vanessa and Bianka used a small wooden mallet to crack the giant egg open, which was filled with treats for the young ones.
Bianka could be heard excitedly saying, "Chocolate, Chocolate!"
she's goes on to ask her mom, "Mom can I eat it?"
"Yeah, baby bites, though," Vanessa replies.
The video comes only three months after the tragic loss of Kobe and Gianna Bryant, to a fatal helicopter crash in Calabasas, California along with seven others.
Kobe has been announced to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame posthumously. Vanessa expressed her pride in Kobe's accomplishment in a somber tone, in an interview with ESPN alongside daughter Natalia. Vanessa went on to express how she felt Kobe would have probably been part of the 2020 Hall of Fame Class, but that opportunity was cut short because of the crash.
