Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa, took to Instagram on Saturday to share a video of her youngest daughter, 7-month-old Capri, learning to stand up on her feet.
Millions of Vanessa Bryant’s Instagram fans have been gushing over the adorable infant since the video was posted.
The video shows little Capri struggling cheerfully to get up on her feet, with a little help from Vanessa’s sister, Sharia Washington, according to TMZ.
Little Capri attempts her latest trick multiple times and each time she succeeds, she looks over her shoulder at the camera with a disarming smile on her pretty little face. The radiant joy on the little girl’s face shows she is proud of her achievement.
Vanessa captions the incredibly cute video with a reference to “Gigi,” the nickname of Capri’s 13-year-old big sister, Gianna, who died with her father, Kobe, in a helicopter crash on Sunday, January 26, 2020.
“My Koko Bean. She looks just like my Gigi with her daddy’s eyes. ☀️❤️auntie Ri-Ri. #7months.”
Capri Bryant’s adorable video goes viral
The video has received more than 6.1 million views since it was uploaded to Instagram earlier today.
Vanessa is the person behind the camera and viewers can hear her cheering her baby on to accomplish her latest amazing feat.
“Good job, Koko, good job. Good girl, Mamacita. Wanna do it again?” Vanessa says.
Capri giggles excitedly the first time she gets on her feet. She looks at her mom behind the camera for encouragement.
Capri is so eager to prove that her first success was not a fluke. She powers up so forcefully the second time that Sharia loses her grip momentarily. But all is well at last as Capri stands on her feet a second time. She looks at her mom behind the camera and giggles excitedly in celebration.
Fans were happy to see the family recovering after the tragedy. Capri has two other older sisters, 17-year-old Natalia (born January 200) and three-year-old Bianka (born December 2016).

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. To honor our Team Mamba family, the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up the MambaOnThree Fund to help support the other families affected by this tragedy. To donate, please go to MambaOnThree.org. To further Kobe and Gianna’s legacy in youth sports, please visit MambaSportsFoundation.org. Thank you so much for lifting us up in your prayers, and for loving Kobe, Gigi, Natalia, Bianka, Capri and me. #Mamba #Mambacita #GirlsDad #DaddysGirls #Family ❤️
