Congratulations to Vanessa and Kobe Bryant who welcomed their daughter earlier this week!
"Kobe Bryant has another three-peat under his belt ... 'cause his wife, Vanessa, has given birth to the couple's third child ... TMZ Sports has learned.
The Bryants announced some time ago they were expecting another little girl ... and we've confirmed the bouncing baby mamba was born this week in the OC."
The Bryants announced the expectancy of their third child earlier this year. "Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #blessed #babymamba #thankful," Vanessa wrote on Instagram. The star mom also shared a picture of a onesie fit for a little one that read, "Baby Mamba." Kobe shared the same picture on his Instagram page.
It was just a few months ago that Kobe played his final game and retired from the NBA. "I'm thankful," Bryant told media in August. "I'm not sad at all. I left no stone unturned, I gave everything to the game for 20 years in the NBA and more before that. So I feel very thankful to be able to play this game this long."
Kobe Bryant began playing for the Los Angeles 'Lakers' in 1996. The star athlete was drafted before he could finish college but has made history as the first NBA player to remain with the same team for the stint of his career. Kobe and Vanessa Bryant's newest addition joins the couple's daughters, Gianna and Natalia, at home.
