Kobe Bryant’s wife welcomes baby girl, names after husband
There’s another Kobe in the family.
Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa welcomed their fourth daughter on Thursday, naming their new bundle of joy Capri Kobe Bryant, after her NBA pop.
“Our baby girl is here!!!!” Vanessa, 37, wrote on Instagram on Friday. “So thankful for our newest baby blessing.”
The mom of four also added that she will be nicknamed Koko.
Kobe, 40, also shared in the excitement, writing on social media, “We are beyond excited that our baby girl ‘Koko’ has arrived!! #bryantbunch #4princesses #blessed.”
The couple, who have been married since 2001, announced they were expecting another daughter in January via Instagram with the athlete writing, “Vanessa and I are beyond excited to announce that we are expecting another #mambacita to go along with Natalia (16), Gianna (13) and Bianka (2).”
Even with four kids, Kobe hinted that he and his wife may want to try for a boy, telling “Extra” in March, “I think [Vanessa] wants a boy more than I do. I love having girls — I’m super, super excited about that. She is as well. She wanted a boy so he can be mama’s boy forever — that sort of thing. We’ll see if I can deliver, I don’t know.”
Maybe then he can start his own basketball team.
