Vanessa Bryant honored the origin story of her and late other half Kobe Bryant‘s romance on her personal Instagram.
On an image of her and Kobe at Disneyland, the previous design composed, “Love at first sight 11/27/99 #21.”
The date significant 21 years considering that Vanessa and Kobe fulfilled, though unlike the picture Vanessa picked, the 2 did not satisfy at the amusement park. The couple, who wed in 2001, fulfilled at a recording studio, where the NBA legend was pursuing his enthusiasm beyond basketball: a never-released hip-hop album. Vanessa was working as a backup dancer in a video for Tha Eastsidaz‘ “G’d Up.”
Kobe passed away in a helicopter crash on January 26, at age 41, in addition to his and Vanessa’s 13-year-old child Gianna and 7 other individuals.
Vanessa, who turned her Instagram to request-only previously this year, shared her heartbreak in a homage to Kobe and Gianna in August.
“I’m mad I didn’t go first. I always wanted to go first so that I selfishly didn’t have to feel this heartache,” the 38-year-old composed on Instagram. “You were supposed to miss me. Gigi was supposed to be here with her sisters. It should’ve been me.”
