The NBA star revealed the new addition to his family with a Tuesday Instagram post featuring a red bow, sneakers and a onesie that read “Baby Mamba.”
“Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #Blessed #BabyMamba #Thankful,” Bryant, 37, captioned the photo.
Bryant and Vanessa, 34, are also parents to Natalia, 13, and Gianna, 10.
There’s no mention of a due date yet – and Vanessa wasn’t showing a baby bump on Wednesday’s ESPYs carpet, but there’s no doubt this dad-to-be is excited for the new family member.
Kobe has been heavily involved in his children’s extracurricular activities – especially sports. Last December, a proud Kobe talked about daughter Gianna’s skills on the basketball court.
“We were shooting not too long ago and she was shooting one-dribble pullups,” he proudly told ESPN. “I asked her where does she get that from? She said, ‘From watching you.’ ”
