Vanessa Bryant has got a tattoo dedicated to her late husband Kobe and the rest of her immediate family inked onto her foot. The wife of the LA Lakers basketball player, 41, lost her husband and daughter Gianna, 13, earlier this year in January after the pair died in a tragic helicopter crash.
She has inked their names onto her body in a sweet tribute to remember them forever - along with their three other daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, three, and Capri, one. Vanessa's new piece of artwork, which extended from her ankle to her toe, was done by tattoo artist Mister Cartoon.
She shared a shot of the new ink as she wore a pair of grey suede heels. Vanessa wrote to her 13.4million followers: "#MiFamilia Thank you @misterctoons," adding gold and purple hearts. On Sunday, the star congratulated her husband Kobe's confidante Rob Pelinka after Lakers won the NBA title in defeating the Miami Heat 106-90 in game six of their best-of-seven series.
"Go Lakers! Congratulations Uncle P!' she wrote to the team's general manager Pelinka, who paired superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis for the vaunted franchise's first championship in a decade, and 17th overall.
Vanessa also quoted her husband, writing: "Congratulations @Lakers! Kobe was right RP, 'Stay the course - block out the noise'- @kobebryant." It comes nine months after their tragic deaths with seven others in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on January 26.
Also killed in the crash were pilot Ara Zobayan, 50, Payton Chester, 13, Sarah Chester, 46, Alyssa Altobelli, 14, Keri Altobelli, 46, John Altobelli, 56, and Christina Mauser, 38.
