Kobe Bryant, wife Vanessa expecting third daughter

Kobe Vanessa Bryant

Kobe Bryant retired from the NBA only a few months ago, and he wasted no time expanding his family.

Kobe and wife Vanessa announced on Instagram Tuesday that they are expecting their third child — a girl — which would give them three girls.

Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #Blessed #BabyMamba #Thankful

The two seem excited about the pregnancy. Their first daughter, Natalia Diamante, was born in 2003. Their second daughter, Gianna Maria-Onore, was born in 2006. Their third is coming soon.

The big irony is that Kobe once gave a Lakers writer advice on how to have a boy:

There was one thing, years ago, I had two girls and we were talking about how we were going to try to have a third. And, he told me that to have a boy, I need to keep my socks on with my wife… that was his advice. I did not listen, and I have a third girl.

Clearly Kobe forgot to leave his socks on.

This is really great for the Bryant family, especially since we learned that Vanessa suffered a miscarriage years ago. Maybe they always wanted a bigger family.
