Legendary Basketball star, Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, has broken her silence on the death of her husband and their daughter, Gianna, in a touching Instagram post.
Bryant, 41, and his daughter died Sunday in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles that killed seven other people as they were on their way to a basketball tournament in Thousand Oaks, California.
Vanessa Bryant said she and her three surviving daughters have been “completely devastated.”
In her first public statement following the tragic deaths of her husband, Kobe Bryant, and daughter, Gianna, Vanessa Bryant penned an emotional tribute on Instagram late Wednesday on IG.
“There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now.”
“I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved.”
Vanessa and Kobe Bryant married in 2001 and would have celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary in April.
She described the basketball legend as an adoring husband and father and called Gianna “a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter” and an amazing sister to their three other daughters, Natalia, Bianka and Capri.
“I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them,” she said. “But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way.”
