Natalia looked gorgeous ahead of her winter formal.
Vanessa shared the most beautiful photo of her firstborn on her way to her school dance at Sage Hill School in Los Angeles, California. Natalia posed in a short blue dress with beige heels in front of a stunning mural of her little sister and her father. The 17-year-old made sure to include them in her special day even if they are no longer able to share the moment with her. Vanessa captioned the Instagram post: "❤️My babies. Natalia. #winterformal #together #family."
Vanessa and her other two babies joined her for a pic.
No matter what, Vanessa is doing her best to keep her girls united. Natalia showed off her big smile as she posed along with her mom and her baby sisters, Bianka Bella and Capri Kobe. Natalia just turned 17 in January, while her baby sisters are 3 years old and 8 months old, respectively.
Kobe and Natalia shared a special bond.
Although Kobe was known to have a special connection with daughter Gigi because of her love of basketball, his love for his first child was just as strong. He constantly supported her by attending her volleyball games and spoke highly of her every chance she got. The couple welcomed Natalia in January 2003, and he opened up about his new journey of being a father at the time. “My philosophy is I want to teach my daughter Natalia to pretty much experience life to the fullest, the ups and downs. I know some parents don’t want their kids to go through any down periods. I do. I’ll be there; I’ll support her,“ he told Jet magazine in 2003.
Vanessa spoke about the great bond Gigi and Kobe had.
During her speech at Kobe and Gianna's memorial service in February, Vanessa told her husband that she will be taking care of their three babies and will make sure they are still the "best team" together. "God knew they couldn't be on this earth without each other," she said about Kobe and Gigi. "He had to bring them home to have them together. Babe, you take care of our Gigi."
