Vanessa Bryant Shares Old Interview of Late Husband Kobe Calling Her His 'Best Friend'

Vanessa Bryant was more than a wife in Kobe Bryant‘s eyes.

On Wednesday, Vanessa, 37, shared an old interview her late husband gave to Extra, in which the basketball star named her as his best friend without hesitation, and that his daughters simply referred to him as “daddy.”

Vanessa captioned the post with a red heart emoji on Instagram, sharing the sentimental moment with her nearly 11 million followers. The official account for Extra commented on the post and said, “Sending you all our love. ❤

Earlier in the day, Vanessa also shared a smiling portrait of Kobe on her Instagram page, reiterating that he was her best friend, writing, “#mybestfriend #theBestdaddy Miss you so much. #handsome #sweet #funny #silly #lovinghusband ❤Miss you saying, ‘Bonjourno principessa/reina.'”

The emotional social media activity from Vanessa comes nearly 10 days after Kobe died at age 41 in a helicopter crash along with one of their four daughters, 13-year-old Gianna. He is also survived by Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months.
