Vanessa Bryant, the wife of late Kobe Bryant finally breaks the silence after three days of her husband’s death. On Wednesday, Vanessa publicly commented on social media thanking millions of people who have expressed their support for her and her daughters.
Earlier the day, Vanessa updated her Instagram profile photo to one of Kobe hugging Gianna that was taken during the 2016 NBA All-Star Game in Toronto. In a lengthy and emotional Instagram post accompanied by a family picture, she said, “There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now.”
“I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever.”
The National Basketball Association (NBA) star died on 26th January in a helicopter crash. On Sunday morning, the helicopter was carrying Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, six family friends, and the pilot. They were travelling to a basketball game at Bryant’s Mamba Academy. Bryant, his daughter, and the other seven occupants were killed in the crash. The aircraft was intact when it hit the ground, but the impact spread debris over more than 500 feet.
