Hearts around the world instantly melted on Wednesday evening after Kobe and Vanessa Bryant shared the first photo of their newborn baby girl, Bianka Bella Bryant.
Wrapped in a pink knit blanket and head wrap, baby Bianka can be seen sleeping soundly with the most precious facial expression that even the world’s worst person couldn’t resist.
“@vanessabryant and I are beyond excited to welcome our newest baby girl, Bianka!!” Kobe wrote on Instagram. “#BabyBlessing #SweetBaby #AnotherAngel. Bianka Bella Bryant.”
Bianka was born on December 5, 2016 and weighed in at 7 pounds, 5 ounces and 20 inches.
Vanessa shared the same sweet photo on social media with the caption: “Kobe and I are beyond excited to welcome our newest baby girl, Bianka!!! #BabyBlessing #SweetBaby #AnotherAngel.”
Bianka is now officially the little sister to Kobe and Vanessa’s two other daughters, Natalia Diamante and Gianna Maria-Onore. This also means the former Lakers player and his wife of 15 years are just two daughters away from having a starting WNBA lineup.
Speaking of basketball, the birth of Kobe’s third child comes just seven months after ending his 20-year career in the NBA. It looks like there is a new chapter starting for the Bryants.
Congrats to the gorgeous clan.
