VANESSA BRYANT Writes Emotional Tribute To Her Daughter, Late Ms Gianna Who Turned 14 Yesterday.



Vanessa Bryant has wished her late daughter Gianna a happy birthday on the day the teenager would have turned 14.

Mum Vanessa suffered unimaginable heartbreak earlier this year when her daughter Gianna and her husband Kobe Bryant were killed in a tragic helicopter accident along with nine other people.

The group were travelling near Calabasas, Los Angeles when the chopper crashed into a hillside during heavy fog.

Widow Vanessa, who is also mum to Natalia, Capri and Bianka, took to Instagram to pay tribute to Gianna on her first birthday since January's crash.

In the heartbreaking message, Vanessa said she missed everything about her girl, known affectionately as Gigi, and that she wished she could wake up and have her there with her on her special day.

Alongside a smiling photo of the teenager at Disneyland, Vanessa wrote: "Happy 14th Birthday to my sweet baby girl, Gianna. Mommy loves you more than I can ever show you. You are part of MY SOUL forever. I miss you so much everyday.

"I wish I could wake up and have you here with me. I miss your smile, your hugs and your giggles. I miss EVERYTHING about YOU, Gigi. I LOVE YOU so much!!!!!!!"
