Vanessa Bryant posted a sweet video Saturday to Instagram as 3-year-old daughter Bianka attempted to break open a blue egg ahead of Easter Sunday, the family’s first since the deaths of patriarch Kobe and 13-year-old daughter Gianna in January.
“Easter Treats!” Vanessa, 37, captioned the clip, which also featured 9-month-old daughter Capri. “Thank you @jeffleatham.”
In the video, Vanessa helps Bianka open the treat-filled egg as Capri is seen smiling nearby.
Earlier this month, Vanessa spoke about Kobe’s Basketball Hall of Fame nod, which she called “the peak of his NBA career.”
“We’re incredibly proud of him,” Vanessa told ESPN.

Smile: by Nat King Cole Smile though your heart is aching Smile even though it's breaking When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by If you smile through your fear and sorrow Smile and maybe tomorrow You'll see the sun come shining through for you Light up your face with gladness Hide every trace of sadness Although a tear may be ever so near That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying? You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying? You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile
Vanessa and Kobe were married in 2001 and share four daughters, including eldest Natalia, 17. The Lakers legend perished in a California helicopter crash earlier this year, along with Gianna and seven others. Kobe was 41 years old.
In March, Vanessa and her daughters posed alongside a mural of Kobe and Gianna in Los Angeles.
