Retired Los Angeles Lakers defence and businessman Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa Bryant (neé Laine) welcome daughter Bianka Bella Bryant, who was born December 5, 2016. The Bryants, whom have been married since 2001 are also parents to Natalia Diamante Bryant, 13 and Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, 11.
After some personal controversy and a repudiated divorce filing, Mr Bryant has bounced back with a lucrative profile in advertising including the successful ad campaign for Turkish Airlines starring himself & FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi. He is featured in a series of NBA video games, has done a number of Nike shoe collaborations and had endorsements from Sprite (Coca-Cola), Spalding, McDonald’s and Nutella.
Congratulations to the Bryant family!
