There is a new member to the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant family and it’s not a $4 million dollar “whoops I cheated” ring. Instead, it’s a baby girl named Capri Kobe Bryant. I guess it’s been so long since Kobe publicly cheated on his wife, he’s getting babies names after him. Good on him!
According to E!:
Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Laine Bryant made an exciting and special announcement on Friday afternoon about the new addition to their family. The brunette beauty welcomed her fourth child with the 40-year-old star, a baby girl. What’s more? The newborn’s name pays tribute to her famous father in a unique way. Their little nugget’s name is Capri Kobe Bryant but it seems they plan to call her “Koko,” according to the retired basketball player’s Instagram post.
Okayyy. Seems like Vanessa has really forgiven Kobe for that teeny tiny rape accusation that he had to settle in a civil suit. Sure she got some presents after it (and the girls likes her presents/handbags), but for her to name their daughter after him… I did not see that coming. If you had told me in 2003 that 2019 Kobe would still be married to Vanessa, had won an oscar and Vanessa named her 4th daughter after him, I would assume we have entered in a world where everybody is high on crystal meth all the time. But turns out, this is the world we are living in. I guess if 1980’s soap operas have taught us anything (AND THEY HAVE!), it’s that sometimes the alleged rapist can find redemption. Luke and Laura ended up married and it was one of the biggest moments in day time TV, so we’ve been a weird messy nation for awhile, which means I should be surprised by nothing.
Let’s just be glad 80’s soaps didn’t have Instagram accounts, because the synchronized Instagram posts would be happening about how #blessed they are.
“Our baby girl is here,” Vanessa captioned her social media posts, along with a photo of her daughter’s name embossed on a piece of cloth (it looks like a baby blanket).
“Capri Kobe Bryant,” she said. “So thankful for our newest baby blessing. 6/20/19.”
Additionally, the proud father took to social media to reveal the news about his little bundle of joy.
Vanessa added, “Kobe and I are so happy to add another baby blessing to our family!Bianka will have a new baby sibling to play with and Natalia and Gianna are super excited to welcome another little baby sister to love.”
Vanessa must get a hell of a push present or enjoy being pregnant since she’s done this four times with some pretty significant time breaks in between (I guess we all know why those breaks may have happened). Either way, congrats to the new parents and the new baby, here’s hoping they stay together forever, or Vanessa gets huge child support checks if they don’t!
