Vanessa Bryant, widow of the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant, shared a photo of herself cuddling Win Russell, the 2-month-old son of Ciara and Russell Wilson.

"The sweetest," Russell commented on the post. "We love you Auntie V!"

Vanessa, 38, is close friends of Ciara and Russell. She recently gushed about her "amazing friends" in late August.

Vanessa and the Wilsons became closer after Kobe and Vanessa's daughter, Gianna, died in a fiery helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. in January.

Kobe and Vanessa also shared daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 1.

In August, Ciara shared a photo of herself posing with Vanessa and her daughters Bianka and Capri.

"Seeing you and the girls smile makes my heart smile," wrote Ciara, 34.

"You're the toughest mama I know. Seeing you put one foot forward each day is admirable.

"It ain't easy, but if I know one thing, Mamba Queen's capable of it all. Love you V. @VanessaBryant. #MambaDay".

 

Vanessa posted the same photo on her Instagram account. She captioned the image:

"It takes a village. Thank you to all my loving family, amazing friends and wonderful fans for your love and support. One day at a time."
