Vanessa Bryant and her eldest daughter Natalia were featured in a heartwarming issue of Vogue and Bulgari's Mother's Day special. The wife of Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant shared the video of herself and Natalia sharing extremely touching messages with each other.
Natalia, who called her mother her “rock,” told Vanessa Bryant:
“People may not remember what you did or may not remember what you said. But they will remember how you made them feel. And that's the lesson that I've always taken, I've carried throughout my life. You're the strongest person I've ever known. We connect on a whole different level and I feel like that's rare in mother-daughter relationships.”
“The way you go about life, you always go for the positive side for any situation. You taught me that at a young age and I've always carried that with me.”
Vanessa Bryant also said this about her beloved daughter:
“I wish that I had someone like you when I was growing up. You're like the constant north star to all your friends.”
“You always try to find the goodness in people and in every situation. I admire that.”
Obviously, both Vanessa Bryant and Natalia are two of the strongest people in the world, considering everything they have been through over the past year or so. Losing Kobe and Gianna so suddenly last year had to be the most painful thing in the world. Still, as they said with their touching messages, they continue to find the positive in life and in every situation and are still continuing to live the legacy left by their beloved Kobe and Gigi.
