Kobe Bryant shares 1st photo of daughter Bianka Bella


Kobe Bryant is giving fans their first glance at baby Bianka.

On Wednesday evening, the retired basketball star shared the first photo of his newborn daughter via Instagram, writing, “@vanessabryant and I are beyond excited to welcome our newest baby girl, Bianka!!”

Previously reported, Bryant, 38, and his wife Vanessa, 34, welcomed their third daughter on Dec. 5 in Newport Beach, California. The couple are already parents to Gianna, 10, and Natalia, 13.

In his latest post, the former Los Angeles Laker also revealed that the pair’s little mamba weighed in at 7 lbs., 5 oz. and measured 20 inches at birth.

In July, the duo, who have been married for 15 years, announced the coming arrival of baby Bianka Bella with matching Instagram photos of a onesie embellished with the words “Baby Mamba” accompanied by a pair of tiny Nike Kobe sneakers and a darling glittery red bow.

“Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #blessed #babymamba #thankful,” the caption read.

Meanwhile, in September, the couple enjoyed a baby shower among family and friends in Los Angeles. “Thank you to everyone that came to celebrate our baby girl with us yesterday!,” Vanessa wrote via Instagram. “We had such an amazing time and we are truly thankful for each and every one of you. #BabyShower #BabyBlessing,” the mother of three concluded alongside a photo featuring the pair hugged up with a wall adorned with flowers serving as their backdrop.

The baby news seemed to come at just the right time for the family, as months prior the hooper would step out onto the court at the Staples Center for the last time, concluding his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers. Following his final game in April, he tweeted a heartfelt message to fans writing, “Last night was the final chapter to an incredible story. I walk away at peace knowing my love for the game & this city will never be broken.”
