Vanessa Bryant, the wife of NBA Legend, Kobe Bryant has opened up on how she’s dealing with the tragic loss of her husband and 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
The pair died along with seven others in a tragic helicopter crash on Sunday, Jan. 26th. Bryant, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter were actually on their way to a basketball practice when the helicopter they were in crashed, killing everyone on board.
In an emotional Instagram post, Vanessa disclosed that she’s having a hard time accepting that her husband and daughter are gone.
According to her, even when she tries to process Kobe being gone, her body refuses to accept that her daughter will never come back to her.
Sharing a heartbreaking video of Gianna and Kobe, she wrote: I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong.
Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri.
I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God, I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over.
Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.
Bryant and Gianna are survived by his wife Vanessa, and daughters Natalia, Bianka and Capri.
