Thrice as nice! Kobe and Vanessa Bryant named their third daughter Bianka Bella Bryant, according to a birth certificate obtained by TMZ. Per the document, their little girl was born at 4:09 p.m. on December 5 at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, California.
The former Lakers star, 38, and Vanessa, 34, are also the parents of daughters Natalia Diamante Bryant, 13, and Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, 10.
Bianka’s arrival came shortly after the NBA all-star officially retired this past April, ending his legendary 20-year basketball career.
Kobe and Vanessa announced they were expecting in July via Instagram, captioning an adorable onesie with the words "Baby Mamba" on it. “Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!!” Kobe captioned the pic. The snap also featured a teeny-tiny pair of red and black sneakers and a sweet red bow.
The duo celebrated their youngest child with a baby shower in Los Angeles in September.
The athlete and model met in November 1999 and tied the knot in 2001. In December 2011, Vanessa filed for divorce from Kobe amid reports the NBA star had been unfaithful. They later called off their divorce in January 2013.
“I am happy to say that Vanessa and I are moving on with our lives together as a family,” the sports star wrote on Facebook at the time. “When the show ends and the music stops, the journey is made beautiful by having someone to share it with.”
