Vanessa Bryant Opens Up About Her “Unimaginable” Pain After Kobe And Gianna’s Tragic Helicopter Crash
It’s been a little over a year since Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna tragically died in a helicopter accident. The news shocked the world and millions of people around the world grieved.
But no one grieved harder than Vanessa Bryant. Not only did she lose her husband that day, but she also lost her daughter.
During a recent cover story for People magazine, Vanessa talked about the pain she feels every single day…
This pain is unimaginable. You just have to get up and push forward. Lying in bed crying isn’t going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again.
But getting out of bed and pushing forward is going to make the day better for my girls and for me. So that’s what I do.
And that’s the thing to remember. Vanessa still has three daughters to care for. She has to still be a mother to those girls, even though she’s experiencing such terrible pain.
But it’s her girls who give her strength, “My girls help me smile through the pain,” she revealed.
The memory of Kobe and Gianna also helps her move forward…
They inspire me to try harder and be better every day. Their love is unconditional and they motivate me in so many different ways.
Vanessa has been trying her best to stay busy this past year. She’s taking the reigns on several projects Kobe had been working on in both the entertainment world and charity. She recently worked with author Ivy Claire to complete Kobe’s novel for young adults, Epoca: The River of Sand.
Safe to say, she’s trying to keep the memory of her husband and daughter alive, while also trying to move forward and be the best mother she can be to her three daughters.
It’s not easy, but she’s doing it.
