Vanessa Bryant remembers her late husband, the basketball legend Kobe Bryant, on the couple’s 20th wedding anniversary.
On April 18, Vanessa took to Instagram to share a photo from the couple’s wedding day. She has the picture titled, “Happy Anniversary, Baby. I love you. 20 years old. @Kobebryant.”
The model also shared a video of her and Kobe, this time writing “I love you for now, forever, and forever” in the caption. The video shows the couple kissing along with an interview with Kobe in which he gushes sweetly about his wife.
“My wife Vanessa, it’s fun,” says Kobe in the clip. “We have a good time together. I love her very much. But we’re also best friends. It’s a blessing.”
41-year-old Kobe died in a helicopter crash with his and Vanessa’s 13-year-old daughter in January 2020 Gianna Bryant and seven other passengers.
At that time Vanessa broke her silence about the tragedy on Instagram and wrote next to a family photo: “We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adored husband Kobe – the amazing father of our children; and my lovely, sweet Gianna – a loving, thoughtful and wonderful daughter and amazing sister too Natalia, Bianca, and capri. “
