Proud mom Vanessa Bryant is celebrating her daughter Natalia Bryant getting accepted into the University of Southern California (USC) on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old is seen jumping up and down in a video shared on her mom’s Instagram page.
In the video, Natalia, wearing a USC top, shouts: “I got in!”
‘Nessa captioned the clip:
“Tears of joy. I’m SO happy for you Nani! I know daddy is so PROUD OF YOU. I am so PROUD OF YOU!! Your hard work and dedication was so worth it. You pushed through the most excruciating pain imaginable and you succeeded. I wish Daddy and Gigi were physically here to celebrate but I know they’re here in spirit. We love you so much! #USC #Trojan #FightOn.”
Natalia is one of NBA legend Kobe Bryant‘s four daughters. The former Lakers star and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, tragically died in a helicopter crash in January 2020.
Vanessa Bryant was left behind to raise their minor children, Bianka, 4, and 20-month-old Capri, by herself.
She said Kobe and Gianna inspire her to keep going every day.
“I guess the best way to describe it is that Kobe and Gigi motivate me to keep going,” she said previously. “They inspire me to try harder and be better every day. Their love is unconditional and they motivate me in so many different ways.”
