Kobe Bryant and pregnant wife Vanessa are excited to meet their third daughter! The couple celebrated their baby girl’s upcoming arrival with a baby shower in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Vanessa, 34, was glowing in a white long sleeve wrap dress while the retired NBA player, 38, color-coordinated with a white polo shirt.

“Thank you to everyone that came to celebrate our baby girl with us yesterday! We had such an amazing time and we are truly thankful for each and every one of you,” the mother-to-be captioned her photo on Instagram.

In the sweet picture, the Laker legend dotingly cradled his wife’s baby bump, even making a heart with his hands as they both showed beaming smiles in front of a stunning wall of fresh pink and white flowers.

Kobe and Vanessa are already parents to two children, daughters Natalia, 13, and Gianna, 10. The parents-to-be, who have been married for 15 years, announced in July that they were expecting their third child, fittingly with a photo of a “Baby Mamba” onesie and a pair of adorable little Nike Kobe sneakers.

Sorry. I have no respect for this woman after the way she flashed the million dollar ring while supporting her husband during the rape allegation.

Her youngest is 10, so she probably realized she had to pop out another to extend her financial security.

They are adorable. If she forgives him why are you worried about it?
