The eldest daughter of late NBA legend Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa Bryant’s is gracing the September cover of Teen Vogue for the first time.
Natalia Bryant spoke about how she’s coping with her father’s death, as well as being a college freshman, and her interests.
When it came to talking about the memories she has of her father, she spoke on their tight bond.
Bryant told Teen Vogue out about a memory she had about the two of them watching the 2019 film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and how he was “the best girls dad ever.”
“He was just letting me play my playlist and jam out to Taylor Swift the whole ride back and talk about ‘Star Wars’ ’too. It was so much fun,” she told the outlet.
The aspiring model and volleyball player is ready to take the world by storm and pursue the things that bring her joy and make her family proud.
When Bryant was asked about how she and the rest of the family had been doing after the heartbreaking death of her father, she said: “You do the best that you can. [For] my little sisters [we’re] trying to keep that memory for them.”
She also said that she makes an effort to remember to “live out every day the way they would.”
People took to Instagram to congratulate Bryant and give words of encouragement.
