Kobe Bryant’s eldest daughter paid a touching tribute to her late NBA-legend dad and her sister by posing in front of a Los Angeles mural of the pair in a new photo.
The tender snap of a smiling Natalia Bryant, 17, was posted to Instagram Sunday by the basketball icon’s widow, Vanessa Bryant.
“❤my babies. Natalia,” Vanessa captioned the sweet picture along with the hashtags, “#winterformal #together #family.”
In the photo, Natalia is seen grinning from ear to ear while wearing a blue-and-white dress and high heels with her left hand on her hip in front of the painted outdoor mural depicting Kobe kissing his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, on her head.
A golden halo lingers above the pair in the mural.
Kobe, Gianna and seven others were killed on Jan. 26 when a helicopter they were in crashed amid foggy conditions in the hills overlooking Calabasas, Calif.
During a moving memorial at Los Angeles’ Staples Center last month, Vanessa mourned her husband as her “everything” and their daughter Gianna as “sunshine.”
“God knew they couldn’t be on this earth without each other,” Vanessa told the crowd. “He had to bring them home to heaven together.”
