Vanessa Bryant wishes late girl Gianna a glad fifteenth birthday celebration


Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram Saturday to wish her late girl, Gianna, a glad fifteenth birthday celebration. 





Dear Gianna, Glad fifteenth Birthday celebration! ❤️😘," started the mother of four. "I love you! I miss you regular! I wish you were here with us. There are no words to communicate the amount I miss you. I love you Mamacita! ❤️ #15 #Quincenera #Mambacita #Principessa." 


Gianna kicked the bucket close by her dad, NBA whiz Kobe Bryant, in a helicopter crash January 2020.


Vanessa will also honor her daughter’s memory with her new Mambacita clothing line.

Bryant, 38, and daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 21 months, modeled the collection’s tie-dye sweatsuits on Instagram; along with Gianna’s nickname, the pieces are adorned with her jersey number inside of a heart, along with a small winged star.

The collection will be available in unisex and children’s sizes, according to Bryant, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, the nonprofit founded in Kobe and Gianna’s memory to help fund sports programs in underserved communities.


Gianna became known as “mambacita” due to her love of basketball, and is a play on Kobe’s own nickname, “The Black Mamba.”
