Who are Kobe Bryant’s daughters? Finding out more about the LA Lakers legend

Kobe Bryant's love for his daughters transcended the typical father-child relationship. Kobe openly embraced his role as a father to his daughters, proudly calling himself a "girl dad."

By winning five championships and giving it his all, Kobe Bryant left a lasting legacy in the game of basketball that continues to inspire generations. Sadly, Bryant passed away due to a helicopter crash back in 2020, leaving his family behind.

Prior to the accident, Bryant served as a father to four loving daughters with his wife, Vanessa. The eldest is Natalia, who was born in January 2003. Like her father, she was involved in sports and took on volleyball until her college years. During the past summer, she gained experience by working as an intern on Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour.

Kobe's second child is Gianna, who was also called "Gigi" by most people, born in May 2006. Unfortunately, she was with her father during the helicopter crash and tragically passed away with the Lakers legend. Before the accident, Gigi was often seen with her dad and played basketball on a regular basis.

She was nicknamed Mambacita for her talent on the court and the five-time champion even called her the female version of himself. Gigi had dreams to make it to the WNBA and her dad talked about it in 2018 when he was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

"She’s like, 'Oi, I got this. You don’t need no boy for that, I got this.' That’s right, yes you do. You got this," Bryant said.

His two youngest daughters are Bianka and Capri. Both of them were born after Kobe's legendary career in the NBA and weren't able to watch their dad play. Bianka was born in 2016, while Capri was welcomed by the Bryant family in 2019 and was given the nickname "Koko."
