After the tragic news of Kobe and Gianna "Gigi" Bryant’s passing yesterday (Jan. 26.), our hearts are still breaking. We continue to send our condolences to the Bryant family matriarch, Vanessa Bryant, their three surviving daughters, and the rest of their friends and family.
There’s two things there’s no denying about the legendary Lakers baller—his incredible skills on the court AND his beautiful daddy-daughter bond with his girls. Artist and a creative director for Esteé Lauder Companies Donald Robertson reposted this custom piece he did for Vanessa featuring a Bryant family portrait commenting on the fact that Gigi and Kobe were “glued together” in every photo he received of them for the painting.
To continue to honor the beauty that is their relationship, we’re taking a look back at their sweetest daddy-daughter moments:
