"Happy birthday to the most incredible woman! 💛," commented Viola Davis on Instagram, to which Vanessa replied, "You're too kind. Thank you ❤️." Kyle Richards said, "Happy birthday ❤️❤️❤️❤️," as Olivia Munn added, "HBD love!!! 💖💖💖."

Also sharing a photo posing in front of the Disney theme park's castle while wearing a Mambacita hoodie, Vanessa wrote, "Thank you all for my birthday wishes. Love you! Xo, VB."

Vanessa and Kobe got married in April 2001 and went on to welcome four daughters together: Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, Capri, 22 months, as well as Gianna, who died alongside her father at age 13 in a Jan. 26 helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Kobe was 41.

On Saturday, Vanessa honored her late daughter Gianna on what would have been her 15th birthday. "Dear Gianna, Happy 15th Birthday! ❤️😘I love you!" Vanessa wrote in a touching message, which she shared alongside a throwback shot of the pair smiling while embracing one another. "I miss you everyday! I wish you were here with us. There are no words to express how much I miss you. I love you Mamacita!"

Vanessa recently spoke to PEOPLE about her grief following the loss of her husband and daughter. "I can't say that I'm strong every day," she said in March. "I can't say that there aren't days when I feel like I can't survive to the next."

"This pain is unimaginable [but] you just have to get up and push forward," Vanessa added. "Lying in bed crying isn't going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again. But getting out of bed and pushing forward is going to make the day better for my girls and for me. So that's what I do."
