Kobe and Vanessa Bryant

Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are expecting another baby girl. Kobe, 40, and Vanessa, 36, share three daughters: Natalia, 15, Gianna, 12, and Bianka, 2. The retired NBA MVP made the announcement on his Instagram account on Wednesday.

He wrote:

"Vanessa and I are beyond excited to announce that we are expecting another #mambacita to go along with Natalia, Gianna, and Bianca #blessed #bryantbunch #daddysprincesses #love #2019."

The former L.A. Laker retired in 2016 after a stellar 20 year career in the NBA.

Vanessa, a former cheerleader and model, met Kobe on the set of a music video for the rap group Tha Eastsidaz, featuring Snoop Dogg. The couple wed in 2001 after a brief courtship.

Their marriage hit a rough patch in 2003 after a resort hotel clerk accused the "Black Mamba" of sexually assaulting her. Bryant eventually settled a civil lawsuit filed by the accuser. The assault case was dropped in 2004.

In 2011, Vanessa filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences." But the pair made up and the divorce action was withdrawn.

    Are these people some kind of fundamentalist Christians ?? Also why is she popping them out at such a rapid pace since his retirement ? Questions ...questions .

  • TheWildChild

    He just can't shoot a ? ?

  • iWasteTime

    Kobe, I done told you when to hit it to get that boy!
    Pay attention

  • abby500

    I noticed on his ig he closed the comments. His Count Dracula wife left her comments open and people had NO problem voicing how he was probably disappointed and wanted a boy. She was actually explaining to them that he didn’t. ...he did.

  • Rayne

    I just don’t like nessa ????

  • hi-liter

    What’s that saying about men who only make girls? I need my ol’skool heads for this one.

  • tintin

    Poor Kobe. Of course he wants a son. Any man especially a ball player would want to have a son. And any man wants a boy so their name carries on. I love seeing how Lebron is with his sons. His big one will be destined for greatness in the NBA and I'm sure most ball players want that with their sons.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • Kim’s Original Face

    Kobe just go to the baby bank and pick out a son.

  • pecancandy

    Pay back?

  • leapyearpisces

    dey was hoez. laying low and spreading it wide (Evilyn Braxton's voice), and in Kobe's case we KNOW FOR SURE he spread...NEVERMIND...

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    karma.

  • hi-liter

    ??

  • DroneRivers

    Congrats! They're gonna end up with a basketball team of girls! Maybe 5th time will be the charm?

  • Coy little wink

    These 2 bishes could afford gender selection...

  • stav

    Not Count Dracula....ROFL! I do see the resemblance though, it's all in the teeth.

  • hi-liter

    With their wealth, if he really wanted a son, they could have designed one in the same labs where these surrogates are implanted. Didn’t Chrissy Teigen do that?

  • hi-liter

    Could be.

  • hi-liter

    Yep.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    This ninja cant produce a boy for shht! Just a house fulla split tails smh... He doesn't have any say in that household.

  • hi-liter

    You said it more eloquently than me ?

  • leapyearpisces

    and when is that? I know boy sperm move faster but die quicker, and female sperm are slower, but they hang around for a bit.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I never dug her either, I cant put a finger on it.

  • Coy little wink
  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    A lil retirement plan of her own I guess...

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    1 ah ah ah, 2 ah ah ah, 3 ah ah ah... im dead!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Bashi22

    His Karma deep down he wants a boy

  • leapyearpisces

    I think folks need to leave these designer babies (I would say in-vitro but I know for some that is their only option) babies alone, because all of them look "off". I am not even talking about physical attractiveness, but like the lights are on but no one is home. They all seem a little "spectrumesque". I think they will keep trying until they get a boy, and I think number 5 will be the charm. I think its cute they keep trying naturally. Lord knows they can afford it. I bet it makes for an interesting family dynamic. I am a fan of big families (I am an only child). When he does get that boy, he will be treated like a REAL LIFE KING. GOD bless the girls who try to date him, I know them sisters gonna RUN EVERYBODY OFF!!!

  • Coy little wink

    J hoes twins come to mind...

  • DroneRivers

    He got more time/energy now that he's home all day

  • hi-liter

    ? Who?

  • Tinytoon

    I thought her retirement was secured since they have been married over 10 years. Was there a pre-nup?

  • leapyearpisces

    and Mariah's too (even though little Mimi is coming around, but still) but most def. J hoes. It doesn't help their daddy is a real life skeleton either.

  • Sushi

    You must have grown up with your grandma in the house, cause Load my grandmother would say that

  • DroneRivers

    Nope. She is set no matter what. They had no prenup

  • Coy little wink

    Split tails ?

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Nope, just country as hell LOL

  • Bashi22

    Yes Chrissy both children are invitro.

  • hi-liter

    Definitely “Dem Babies” I’m still waiting on them to look like Mariah or Nick. I Always thought they were strange looking.

  • DroneRivers

    lol

  • TMW

    Chicago and True seem devoid of any personality

  • leapyearpisces

    I saw a recent pic of them, and that little boy still like.....but Roe is starting to come around (still has that blank look though). She looks like Mariah's sister in her younger days before she got sick.

  • hi-liter

    Ok, good they look like “somebody” cause they damn sure don’t look like they parents.

  • DroneRivers

    Not. Richard. Fuggin. Simmons! The way you just made me holler. My God what are y'all on today?! lmao

  • leapyearpisces

    Chicago most definitely has that blank aesthetic. I have seen true show a little personality. But I think Chicago is an android. LOL.

  • leapyearpisces

    Girl, I had to edit it....LOLOLOLOL. You caught it. LOLOLOLOLOL. I said Lord, let me not...I need to find me some "get right" at some point. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

  • dru and neil

    When was Vanessa a cheerleader and model? Are we talking high school?

  • TMW

    Yep. Vanessa wants a son and will keep trying until she gets it.

  • Renee Bee

    (Clutches pearls)

  • dru and neil

    I believe it they want a son, they’d have a son. They got the money and reproductive medicine has advanced enough to allow for this choice. We all know why so many people have boy/girl twins by now...

  • dru and neil

    Upvote for Count Dracula. It’s funny because it’s true!

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Ok

  • Bashi22

    Exactly I heard she was a video girl that luck out. Brandy should have been in her position.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Exactly!

    Vanessa also said it’s in God’s hands.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I swear I was just thinking like all these posts Sandra done gave us today and I don't give a f*ck about none of these people. Can we get a Celebs out and about post so we can talk about people clothes cuz I don't give a shyt about they personal lives!!

  • dru and neil

    Well there it is then, they are doing it the natural way.

  • dru and neil

    That’s exactly what happened according to a family member of mine who went to high school with her. She also told me she has a totally different face. She lucked out big time, went straight from high school, to NBA wife. No modeling career or college or professional cheerleading in between.

  • FukkFolks2019

    I disliked Kobe for a long time. Still not a huge fan. But his fam is beautiful. Congrats on another lil Mambacita bruh

  • Renee26

    Congrats to them

  • TwitterFingerz

    Another coon

  • Bashi22

    Exactly I don’t blame her to stay with him. She would never know how to handle life she’s 36 now. Just my looking at her daughters face you know how she use to look. Do you see Russell second daughter face.

  • http://www.sydnijoneswellington.com Sydni

    You did not just call that baby an Android! LMAO!

  • http://www.sydnijoneswellington.com Sydni

    LOL... basically, ain't got ish else to do.

  • KLo

    who cares

  • KLo

    is he still sleeping with white women and then run over to the black community when charged with ra*e

  • dru and neil

    Yes she’s where she belongs. If she ever divorced him she would easily deserve half, she hasn’t done anything but be his wife, and have his kids, she would deserve every penny. As for anyone trying to figure out why the daughters look like that, it’s becasue their mothers original face has been altered. And yes, Russell Simmons second daughter does kind of favor them!

  • TheWildChild

    Yes ? but have you noticed JLo's daughter' uncanny resemblance to Alex's daughters ?? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/89199b8b659438d115c85f9c9f80be2db485116ca2f2386caef4205e1400238d.png

  • gellie

    I totally agree with you. Besides, ain't nothing wrong with raising princesses. That's a very blessed family.

  • Rayne

    Me neither

  • Bashi22

    Lol yes right where she belongs they will split in half he will make back his half easily. I don’t know if she could monized after the split. Russell daughter looks like him weird

  • gellie

    It's true. Kobe was an only boy with 2 sisters.Vanessa is the one that REALLY wants a boy. She's still fairly young (36). Don't be surprised if there's 1 or even 2 more after this one.

  • Navybeans95

    Dang ole girl is firtle...I guess it's nothing else better to do ...

  • gellie

    As athlete wives go, Vanessa has played her position very well. Cold Tea - The original flagstaff Real Housewives of Orange County tried in vain for YEARS to bring Vanessa on. 7 figures out the gate they offered her and that was over 10 years ago when nobody was getting that kind of coin. She said no every single time.

  • dru and neil

    Russell’s daughter recently brought up her insecurities because of her looks and it was kind of sad. Her mother and sister look alike, they are both really good looking and she looks like Russell. But she got a lot of positive support, it was nice.

  • Keekz

    "Vanessa, a former cheerleader and model..."? . Do you mean high school cheerleader and model(I don't know about the model part, she's like 5 feet). She's been sitting on her azz since high school.

  • Keekz

    they can afford it.

  • dru and neil

    She should continue to say no, there’s no way in hell they need to be on reality TV!

  • Keekz

    Yikes?! split tails?? That sounds like some Mississippi type ish.

  • Keekz

    OMG, those kids look like they don't have souls.

  • Keekz

    Mariah's kids look like they have Alcohol Fetal Syndrome

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I was looking at sites about her. Her occupation is socialite and homemaker.

  • Fire & Ice

    look's like a son ain't in the cards for Kobe

  • EMILY POST

    I mean the description was priceless...

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Please.. The nanny is the homemaker.

  • Gloria

    Kobe cheated on Vanessa with a regular white chick that had another man’s sperm in her drawers..... God ain’t giving him a junior

  • T Willis

    I’m saying!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    I don't understand women who start a whole new family when they have a kid that's almost grown. Who wants to spend nearly 40 years raising kids?

  • BaileyBlue17

    Can't make a boy for $h!t

  • T Willis

    I don’t like Kobe or Vanessa. Something about her that just screams “I hate nuccas - but love black dyck”. It’s a vibe that I get from most Hispanics. R@c!$t mfers. Congrats.

  • Y me?

    Dam! He must've been a straight dog in his glory days because God won't give him not nan son!

  • the guest

    You giver her too much credit. She doesn't like blacks or black dk. She only likes Kobe from his potential to wealth. If Kobe didn't have potential she would never have given him the time of day. And if he didn't become wealthy, she would have divorced him.

    She would have never dated black if Kobe didn't chase her.

  • the guest

    They're still young enough to try again in two years.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    How? She'll be 40 in two years. That's high risk territory.

  • Fire & Ice

    Jesus that was vicious lol

  • Hazel

    Why didn't they just 'buy' a son like Kim Kartrashian?

  • the guest

    Vanessa comes racist anglo mexicans. She hooked Kobe with old fashioned wait until marriage. Read somewhere her father outright told Kobe that there would be none before marriage. Guess what he married her.

  • the guest

    They'll have a boy. And he's going to be the most spoiled youngest only boy child the world has ever known.

  • the guest

    LOVE this.

  • T Willis

    Yeah... but still, Hispanics love black dyck. I’ve seen them stay with black dudes that are poor and toothless. Not to say that you’re wrong about Vanessa - because I too believe she’s a conniving gold digger - I’ve just seen similar coupledom play out this way?????

  • Society Has Changed

    He’s making what he can raise... girls! For the karma of cheating on his lil high schooler made wifey! I wonder if he’s on better terms with his mama because she wasn’t playin about nessa!

  • Tailor Koko Milk

    It makes you so mad that Kim and Kanye do things correctly and got married before they created more lives! You should take some notes you piece of garbage “single” parent hhaha !

  • Tailor Koko Milk

    But they happier than you and your bastard kids lol

  • JazzyBossyJen
  • elroy

    exactly

  • Rita

    Right! Raising kids all your life...shidd I'll wait for grandkids.

  • Keekz

  • Keekz

    Right.

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    Why you care you don’t have to raise them!! Mind your business

  • eBay

    North was almost a year old when Kimye got married. She’s in the wedding photos. They were not married when they “created more lives”.

  • Alana Sims

    Well, ppl keep sayin Kobe isn’t going to be blessed with a son, but doesn’t he have enough money for in-vitro so his wife can end up prego with a baby boy?! Lotta wealthy folks end up choosing the gender of their children with in-vitro. ??????????Am i wrong?!

  • Harley

    Yep

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    In vitro fertilization is against some religions. That may be why Vanessa said to let God decide.

  • Lady_Elle

    Ummmm wasn't Kim Kardashian pregnant by Kanye while still married to the Chris Humphries?

  • Lady_Elle

    Congratulations to this happy couple!

  • Neva RuthLess

    Oh stop. That literally makes no sense. It’s just a roll of dice chance.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Stop. Daughters are not a curse.

  • abby500

    Yes

  • abby500

    I TOTALLY agree. TOTALLY... Hispanic women.... ??

  • abby500

    Her vampire looking â?š was at the snoop video shoot. Probably abt to get run through and Kobe swooped in and snatched her up probably seconds before anybody else grabbed her. And he acted like she was a prize. Nasty distrustful Latinas...sorry.

  • abby500

    She was a groupie at the snoop video shoot. U know what was likey going down there. Kobe acting like she was a queen. She was a groupie

  • Black4life

    They (Latinas) are very distrustful and deceitful.

  • Black4life

    Ewww...ewwww...yuk yuk. Nasty a*** h**

  • Black4life

    Sorry...but they do look a funny. Like they're not looking into your eyes.

  • Black4life

    I ain't one to gossip, but they say Marc Anthony has been using heroin for years.

  • leapyearpisces

    Really? Always thought the second daughter (Aoki???) was prettier.

  • leapyearpisces

    Indeed. Quiet is kept, I have found that a lot of women love being the only woman in the house, and love a house full of boys, and some men are the same way..love being the only king among a house full of women...because both get spoiled as hell. I worked with this lady who was married and had 3 boys. GOOD GAWD!!! The presents she would get, and the things the husband and the boys would do for her! She said she wouldn't have a girl for nothing in this world because she said she was very celebrated in her household. I said well damn!!!!

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Awww I know he wanted a boy. Congrats

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    I'm always skeptical when I see a non black with a black man that usually a racist woman and he's usually a low self-esteem nigga

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Exactly!!

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    You are exactly right!! Remember only black woman at video shoots are hoes lol. That's why Super ni66a come flflying in with their save a hot capes and rescue the non black chicks lol
    That's the way most of those rappers athletes and other entertainers meet their "good girls" at

  • gail jones

    Neither do I.

  • Nene’s Wig

    Why don’t they do the in vitro fertilization and just pick out a boy like the Curry’s did? He’s never going to get a boy going the natural route ..

    LMAO skeleton, he sure does.

    Too be fair, both Mariah and Nick are vapid acting and looking, so maybe it was just genetic?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Poor Kobe. he may be good at shooting a basketball but his chromosomes not good at shooting for that boy. I know she desperately wants to give him a son.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Uh wasn't Kim preggers before she got married?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    EXACTLY!!!! Oh and don't forget fame she loves the idea of being a super stars wife.

  • HIS4EVA

    He can afford it!

  • Bashi22

    I know it’s not a curse, however he would like a boy. He needs to cheap with a black girl she will give him a boy.

  • EasyBreezy

    The way Kobe treated his mama.....he can forget about a boy! #karmaDon'tplay

  • Love Luv

    Not everyone wants one of each child or both genders. Some people just want their children so quit assuming.

    Vanessa is the trifling one? I’m going to say she’s married to Kobe. By all historical accounts Vanessa did was she was suppose too. Wife up. Marry extremely well. Have the children. Make him chase you. Tend to her homestead where she mostly resides with her babies. Forgive. Most important love and don’t tell your left what your right is doing.

    Kobe CHOSE to be a slore not Vanessa. She stays by his side and she’s the one untrustworthy because she married someone early with change as ancestors use to pray for us to do? How many have done the same or worse with a broke man. Not that money makes a man leave this woman alone and make up your mind what the rules for being boss is going to be. Make sure you are and have followed them yourself. I’m tired of people treating her as Laura pippin. (Intentional) you may not like Vanessa but she got her and her girls more than a check. She isn’t finished YET with her goals.

    You are officially hailed douche of the year for 2019. You do realize you are defending a succubus harlot that was married to Humphries, cheating and got pregnant by Kanye right? Not only that ..
