Vannessa Bryant shares adorable vid of Kobe's 18-month-old daughter Capri talking 'just like her dad'December 15, 2020
KOBE Bryant’s widow Vanessa has shared an adorable video of their daughter speaking “like daddy”.
The basketball legend died in a helicopter crash this January alongside his daughter, Gianna, and seven others.
Kobe, 41, is survived by his 37-year-old wife and daughters Bianka and 11-month-old Capri.
Vanessa posted a video of Capri – nicknamed ‘KoKo’ – wearing a festive bow and eating orange segments out of a bowl.
“What are you eating?” Vanessa asks to which Capri replies “orange” prompting her mum to say “Good job! Orange – you say it like daddy.”
Vanessa has posted several videos since Kobe’s death showing Capri growing up, including one of her taking her first steps.
She met Kobe in 1999 when Vanessa was working as a background model on a music video and were engaged just six months later.
The former Los Angeles Lakers star referred to Vanessa, 37, as “my Queen” and "best friend" in an Instagram post just eight weeks before the tragic crash.
Kobe and Gianna, herself a promising basketball player, were on their way to the Mamba Academy for basketball practice when the chopper crashed at around 10am on January 25 this year.
The aircraft was flying in conditions that had forced the LAPD to ground their own helicopters.
In the wake of the crash Sheriff’s deputies allegedly took cell phone pictures of the helicopter disaster victims including Kobe and Gianna “for their own gratification”.
In response a new law has now been passed making it illegal for first responders to take unauthorized photos of a dead person at an accident following Kobe Bryant's death.
The "Kobe Bryant Law," signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday, will take effect on January 1.
Kobe recently made the list of highest paid dead celebrities, coming in at number six on Forbes' "Highest-Paid Dead Celebrities of 2020" list.
