Vanessa Bryant took to her platform to mark what would have been her and Kobe’s 20th wedding anniversary. The widow celebrated her ‘forever’ love with the Instagram posts that included some of their best moments together.
A relationship lasting for two decades is very rare and it would have been an amazing milestone for Vanessa and Kobe Bryant to celebrate.
Sadly, the basketball legend was taken away from his wife last year when he and the couple’s secondborn daughter, 13 year old Gigi, died in a helicopter crash.
With that being said, Vanessa still made sure to celebrate and remember the love of her life on the special day of their anniversary.
The post featured a pic from their wedding that took place in 2001 and they looked extremely happy and in love.
Vanessa can be seen wrapping her arms around her groom while they share their first kiss as husband and wife.
In the caption, she wrote: ‘Happy Anniversary, baby. I love you. 20 years.’
And that was not all as she also shared a touching video tribute that included footage of the couple throughout the many years they shared together.
As the images appear, Kobe can be heard in the background saying: ‘My wife Vanessa — it’s fun. We have a good time together. I love her tremendously. But we are best friends, too! It’s a blessing.’
Vanessa captioned this post with: ‘I love you for now, forever and for always @kobebryant.’
This is not the first time Vanessa posts Kobe’s words about love.
She previously also shared a clip in which he says that: ‘Through love, we continue to persevere and to move through it and get through that storm. And then another storm comes and guess what, you ride that one out, as well. I think love’s a certain determination and persistence to go through all the good times and the bad times with someone or with something you truly love.”
