Vanessa Bryant recently found a letter written to her by her husband, former professional basketball player, Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash earlier this year.

The world mourned after hearing about the death of the NBA giant in January. He was on his way to his daughter's basketball game when the crash happened. 13-year-old Gianna and seven other passengers also died in the accident.

"Yesterday I found an envelope labelled 'To: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi'," she wrote on Instagram.

The mother-of-four shared the irony of what was inside. "Kobe had a photo of me drawn with an angel holding me up by an artist on the cover," she said.

"Missing the love of my life and my sweet little Mambacita - my fellow Taurus," she wrote. "Grateful to wake up to my three sweet girls today. Wish we were all together."


The 38-year-old celebrated her birthday on Tuesday and shared another snap with her daughters Natalia, Capri and Bianka.

"Thx to my girls for ordering these flowers and piñatas for mama," she wrote.
