Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa shared a cute photo of the NBA legend’s sister and the couple’s 3-year old daughter to celebrate Kobe’s sister’s birthday. It is precious and heartbreaking…
Vanessa Bryant posted the photo on Instagram, showing little Bianka posing with her aunt, Sharia Bryant, where the two are making funny faces and have a Snapchat type filter on to add red hearts to their photo.
“Happy birthday, Sharia. Love you. ❤️ #tb pic (B.B and my sister-in-law)” Mrs. Bryant captioned the photo.
This is the second time we have seen a photo in the past few weeks, Sharia is the same sister who got the dope tattoo of Kobe and Gianna’s basketball numbers (#2 and #24) on her back and it was shared by Vanessa. “(My sister-in-law got this cool tattoo to honor #GigiBryant and #Kobe) ❤️❤️ 2~24 forever. Love you” she wrote at the time.
Sharia is one of Kobe’s two sisters and lives in Las Vegas with her husband and 3 children. According to LinkedIn, she has served in several executive jobs in Casinos including the ARIA Resort & Casino and had a long stint at the MGM Grand.
Kobe was extremely proud of his sisters and wrote in a letter to his younger self, at one point, reflecting on his decision to stop helping out his sisters financially because he feared it would hold them back from having their own ambitions.
“They’re very smart, college-educated [women],” Kobe said of his sisters. “I’m really proud of them. They were able to get their own jobs, get their own lives, take care of themselves.”
The picture comes one day after Vanessa filed legal documents to add the couple’s youngest daughter, Capri, to Kobe’s trust. Mistakenly, she was left out of it after Kobe failed to amend it after she was born. As you can imagine, Kobe was so young and healthy he probably didn’t think it needed to be rushed. The court will most likely sign off on the modification.
