In January 2020, Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were killed. His widow remembers them on the basketball legend's birthday.

Basketball star Kobe Bryant would have turned 42 on August 23. But a helicopter crash tore him, daughter Gianna "Gigi" and seven other people from their lives on January 26, 2020. Widow Vanessa Bryant (38) took her husband's birthday as an opportunity to share heartbreaking words about her loved ones with her followers via Instagram.

So she wished with all her heart that she could "wake up from this terrible nightmare". "I wish I could surprise our girls and greet you and Gigi at our home. I'm angry that I didn't go first. I always wanted to go first so that I wouldn't have to feel this heartbreak from an egotistical point of view. You should miss me. Gigi should be with her sisters. It should have hit me. "

She wants to be strong for her daughters

Every day she has to suppress her tears to be a support to her children who are still alive: "I am not the strong one. It is you. (…) I am sure that you would be proud of her. You conjure up everyone for me Day a smile on your face. " She is infinitely grateful for having "parts of heaven on earth in the person of her daughters, for which I can wake up – thanks to YOU."

She closes her long post with the words: "Thank you for loving me in a way that will last for several lives. In any life I would choose YOU. Thank you for showing me what true love is."
