ieving wife and mother Vanessa Bryant delivered a t earjerking speech during the memorial for her late husband Kobe Bryant and late daughter Gianna Bryant; melting a lot of h earts at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as well as on social media where videos of her bittersweet messages were uploaded.
In her speech, Vanessa described her man as the “most amazing husband” who loved her more than she could ever express.
“Kobe was known as a fierce competitor on the basketball court. The greatest of all time, a writer, an Oscar winner and the Black Mamba. But to me he was KobKob, my Boo-Boo, my Bae-Boo, my papi chulo. I couldn’t see him as a celebrity nor just an incredible basketball player. He was my sweet husband and the beautiful father of my children. He was mine. He was my everything,” she said.
“Kobe and I have been together since I was 17-and-a-half years old. I was his first girlfriend, his first love, his wife, his best friend, his confidant and his protector. He was the most amazing husband. Kobe loved me more than I could ever express,” she added.
On January 26, the news about Kobe’s d
emi se broke thousands of h earts around the world. The legendary athlete, together with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, was among nine people who perished in a helicopter cra sh; leaving behind his wife and three other children, including a baby who was just born last June 2019.

Meanwhile, despite the pain and sorrow she feels, Vanessa believes that God knew how inseparable Kobe and Gianna were so she brought them “home” together.
“They were so easy to love. Everybody naturally gravitated towards them. They were funny, happy,
silly, and they loved life. They were so full of joy and adventure. God knew they couldn’t be on this Earth without each other. He had to bring them home to have them together,” she expressed.
Before ending her speech, the g
rieving wife told the love of her l ife, “Babe, you take care of our Gigi. I got Nati, BiBi, and KoKo, and we’re still the best team.”
