Vanessa Bryant is honoring her late husband Kobe Bryant on the first Father’s Day since his tragic passing.
On Sunday, the mother of four, 38, paid tribute to the NBA icon with a Father’s Day tribute on Instagram. “Happy Father’s Day to the BEST daddy in the world. We miss you so much. We love you forever and always. Love, Nani, Gigi, BB, Koko and VB ???@KobeBryant #BestoftheBest #GirlDad,” wrote Vanessa, who is also mom to Bianka, 3, and Capri, who turned 1 on Saturday.
Father’s Day comes days after Vanessa spoke in support of the Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant Helicopter Safety Act. “I strongly urge that the United States Congress pass a federal law that would improve the safety of helicopters operating in this country. I believe there is a chance that Kobe and Gianna would still be alive today if their helicopter had been equipped with the safety equipment required by this pending federal legislation,” she said in a statement.
“I believe that these safety measures will save many lives,” Vanessa shared.
The Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant Helicopter Safety Act is a legislation that would require all helicopters certified to carry six or more people to be equipped with a Terrain Awareness and Warning System, a flight data recorder and a cockpit voice recorder.
So much has happened in 2020, it’s crazy to think that Kobe’s helicopter accident was this year. RIP.
