“Happy fifteenth birthday,” Vanessa writes on Instagram with a snapshot with her daughter. “I love you and I miss you every day. There are no words that can express the magnitude of that lack. I wish you were with us now. I love you mamacita . ”
At the same time, the widow of Kobe is also launching a clothing collection as a tribute to her deceased daughter. She is given the name Mambacita, a reference to her pet name for Gianna. Vanessa herself modeled for the line together with her other daughters Natalia (18), Bianka (4) and Capri (21 months). Gianna’s shirt number, who, like her father, had a talent for basketball, has been given a prominent place on the sweaters. The proceeds from the collection are used to support underrepresented population groups in the field of sports.
