In addition to Bianka and Natalia, Vanessa, 40, also shares daughters Capri, 3, and Gianna, who died at age 13, with her late husband. The NBA legend died alongside Gianna and seven others in a tragic helicopter crash in January 2020.

In July, Vanessa and her daughters traveled to Italy to visit the city where the late Lakers player grew up for much of his childhood after his father moved the family overseas following his own NBA retirement. Vanessa documented the meaningful stop in their Italian travels on Instagram.

"Visited Reggio Calabria, a city my husband lived in when he was about 8 years old. ❤️," she captioned photos of the area. The first picture showed her two younger daughters posing in the street, while other shots captured sights around the city.

One month prior, the family visited Kobe's childhood home in Philadelphia, posing for photos outside.

Alongside the photograph of the foursome, Vanessa shared a throwback picture of Kobe playing basketball as a teen. In the same social media post, Vanessa included an image of a manicure with "KOBE" spelled out on the nails.

The former model captioned the series of photographs with a single red heart emoji, tagging the location as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
