Bryant, 38, and his wife shared the news of their third daughter on the way in July with matching Instagram photos of a onesie reading “Baby Mamba,” accompanied by a glittery red bow and a pair of tiny Nike Kobe sneakers.

“Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #Blessed #BabyMamba #Thankful,” Bryant captioned his shot.

The couple has made several event appearances since the announcement, with Vanessa looking chic wearing dresses in various shades of red to show off her growing bump.

In September, the Bryants enjoyed a baby shower among family and friends in Los Angeles, with the mom-to-be taking to Instagram again to share a sweet picture of the couple from the event.

“Thank you to everyone that came to celebrate our baby girl with us yesterday!” Vanessa, 34, wrote next to the snap in which Bryant is cradling his wife’s baby bump lovingly while the two smile widely in front of a gorgeous background of white and pink flowers.

Vanessa added, “We had such an amazing time and we are truly thankful for each and every one of you.”
