The joyous news came more than six months after the former background dancer and her Olympian husband first announced the pregnancy. They had shared that Vannesa was fourth time pregnant via similar Instagram posts on 1st January 2019.
Life With Husband & Kids
Vanessa and her husband’s romance is straight out of a film with an epic love story.
Well, she was working as a background dancer in Tha Eastsidaz’s music video G'd Up while still studying at Marina High School in 1999. Kobe - a rising NBA at the time - was working on his debut music album. The pair happened to meet in a building and had an instant connection.
Then, the former Los Angeles Lakers player began wooing Vannessa with flowers. Six months after their initial meeting, the pair started dating. However, things escalated when Kobe announced his engagement without naming Vannesa.

On 18th April 2001, the pair got married in an intimate wedding ceremony in a Catholic church in Dana Point.
But, their big day wasn’t without drama. Kobe’s parents - former basketball player Joe Bryant and mother Pamela Cox - refused to attend the ceremony. The reason behind the estrangement was, Vanessa didn't sign a prenup, and she was of half-Irish and Mexican ethnicity, not an African-American like their son.
Things worked out after the birth of Vanessa and her Oscar-winner husband’s first daughter, Natalia Diamante’s on 19th January 2003. Following her birthday, Vanessa’s parents-in-law warmed up to their family.

Since then, the pair have welcomed daughters Gianna Maria-Onore in 2006, Bianka Bella in 2016 and Capri Kobe in 2019. However, things weren’t always good with Vanessa and her Olympian husband’s marriage.
On 16th December 2011, she filed for divorce citing, irreconcilable differences. The separation came after her husband was accused of sexual assault by a hotel worker in Colorado. But, the pair canceled the divorce after reconciling shortly on 11th January 2013.
While Vanessa of height 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 m) has devoted her life towards raising her children, her NBA player husband has brought in the income for her family.
Kobe is worth a whopping $500 million.
His net worth comes from his legendary 20 years career with Los Angeles Lakers and brand deals namely Nike, Turkish Airlines, Nintendo and Sprite. Also, he has a 10% equity stake stakes in BodyArmour drinks, which adds $200 million to his net worth as of 2019.
