Kobe Bryant’s kids adopt a puppy named Bobby on heartbreaking first Fathers Day without NBA legend – The Sun

KOBE Bryant's kids adopted a new puppy on the family's first Father's Day without the NBA legend.

Vanessa Bryant shared updates of the cute pup over the weekend, posting adorable snaps of her daughters cuddling the new addition.


Vanessa polled her followers to figure out a name for the pup, allowing followers to choose between “Boddy” and “Bodhi”. 

She later posited a video that the name “Bobby” was the winner, thanks to her three-year-old daughter, Bianka.

“Love seeing my girls smile. Meet Bobby. Aka Bobby ganoush, bobbyrooni, bobbooshka,” Vanessa captioned a snap of eldest daughter Natalia, 17, holding Bobby.

Earlier in the day, Vanessa penned a touching tribute to her late husband Kobe, and her 13-year-old daughter Gianna who tragically died in a helicopter crash in January.

The crash claimed the lives of seven others. 

Wife Vanessa Bryant, 38, posted a tribute honoring Kobe as the “BEST daddy in the world” to their four daughters, including Gianna, who also passed away in the accident.

“Happy Father’s Day to the BEST daddy in the world. We miss you so much.

"We love you forever and always. Love, Nani, Gigi, BB, Koko and VB @KobeBryant #BestoftheBest #GirlDad,” Vanessa wrote.


In the wake of Kobe and Gianna’s deaths, Vanessa has urged lawmakers to pass a helicopter safety bill.

The widow believes the bill will help prevent future helicopter accidents, like the one that killed Kobe and Gigi in January.

The bill, which was introduced by Democratic lawmakers on Thursday, would mandate all helicopters that carry six or more passengers are equipped with a Terrain Awareness and Warning System, a flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder.

The mother of four is also said to be seeking hundreds of millions of dollars as part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed against the helicopter company, as well as the estate of the pilot who was involved in the fatal crash.

A day earlier the family marked another big milestone, sadly without the NBA legend. 

The couple’s youngest daughter, Capri, celebrated her first birthday. 

In a post to Instagram, Vanessa wrote: “Happy 1st Birthday Capri!

“Mommy, Daddy, Nani, Gigi and BB love you SO much!!! God Bless you sweet princess. ❤️,

"Capri Kobe Bryant a.k.a. 'Koko-Bean' named after her dearly missed daddy, Kobe Bean Bryant ❤️We miss you SO much Gigi and Daddy."

Vanessa's friends and followers were quick to comment on the photo and send their wishes.

Khloé Kardashian wrote: “Happy birthday sweet KoKo,” while her mom Kris Jenner added: “Happy Birthday sweet girl.”

Grey's Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo left a series of red heart emojis, while TV presenter Mario Lopez commented: "HBD Capri!"
