It’s only been a few weeks since Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa welcomed their fourth daughter into the world. But the NBA superstar is already giving fans a peak into just how darn cute she is!
This past weekend, Kobe shared an adorable new shot of their baby daughter to social media. “Our little princess Capri Kobe Bryant ‘KoKo’ 6/20/19,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the newborn. In the picture, Koko was swaddled in a pink blanket while sleeping. She was wearing an adorable floral headband that stood out against her dark head of hair.
“Here’s our sweet baby girl! Capri Kobe Bryant 💗6/20/19💗” Vanessa wrote on her own social media account while sharing the same photo. Kobe and Vanessa are already parents to three older daughters: 16-year old Natalia, 13-year old Gianna, and 2-year old Bianka.
The couple married almost two-decades ago in 2001 after meeting as teenagers, even though it was against his parents’ wishes. Yet, unlike many celebrity couples, these two have stood the test of time and seem more in love than ever. The couple did almost get divorced several years ago, but shortly after calling it off they became pregnant with their third child.
Many fans wondered if Kobe was disappointed to be welcoming another girl, but the star has made it clear he wouldn’t have it any other way. However, it doesn’t sound like the long-time loves are necessarily finished expanding their family yet.
This past march, while Vanessa was still pregnant, Kobe told Extra that his wife was still hoping to have a son in the future. So, baby no. 5 could definitely be a possibility. “I think she wants a boy more than I do,” he explained.
The athlete went on, “I love having girls — I’m super, super excited about that. She is as well. She wanted a boy so he can be mama’s boy forever — that sort of thing. We’ll see if I can deliver, I don’t know.” He added, “She’s like, ‘You go see if you can hit a clutch shot. You gave me all girls, let’s see if you can bring a boy!’ Nope, not yet. We’ll see.”
Clearly, Kobe and Vanessa have their hands full with their newest addition. But based on the star’s comments, we wouldn’t be surprised to see another pregnancy announcement in their future.
