Baby Mamba is here.
Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa welcomed their third child – a daughter – this week in Orange County, California, according to TMZ.
The retired NBA star and his wife of 15 years are parents to two daughters: Natalia, 13, and Gianna, 10.
Over the summer, Kobe, 38, and Vanessa, 34, announced they were expecting baby number three.
He shared a sweet photo of a onesie that read ‘baby mamba’ with a red bow and two-tone sneakers to reveal the pregnancy news.
The retired basketball player wrote: ‘Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #Blessed #BabyMamba #Thankful.’
Kobe retired from the NBA in April 2016, after 20 years in the league.
The five-time NBA Champion played his entire career on the Los Angeles Lakers.
The athlete met Vanessa when he was 21 and she was just 17.
Kobe and Vanessa were engaged by May 2000, six months after they met; the lovebirds tied the knot on April 18, 2001.
He recently posted a stunning picture of his wife as she posed with his five NBA Championship rings – one for each finger.
In the spring, the family man made hearts melt after he posted a photo from his anniversary dinner with Vanessa; the twosome were celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary.
Surrounded by red and pink flowers and lit candles, Kobe was snapped with his arms around Vanessa.
He gushed about his wife in the caption: ‘Just finished celebrating my 20 year career. It’s a blessing to now celebrate 15 years of marriage today! I love you mama per sempre #15yranniversary.’
