Ciara and Vanessa Bryant whisked their kids away on a winter vacation, and it’s involved quite a number of fun activities. The latest was a bike riding lesson for four-year-old, Bianka Bryant, who got got some help from Ciara while learning to ride with training wheels. Proud mom, Vanessa, shared a sweet video of the lesson on Instagram.
“Bianka and Auntie C,” she captioned the clip. “Thank you so much for this Christmas vacation auntie Ciara and uncle [Russell Wilson]. Love you guys!!! Thank you so much for being there for us.” In the video, which was filmed at the airport in front of a private jet, Bianka looked too cute while wearing a puffy jacket and matching hat. Ciara stuck by her side and helped guide the bike as the toddler peddled.
Ciara has been a rock for Vanessa since the passing of her husband, Kobe Bryant, and 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, 2020. As the one-year anniversary of the fatal accident approaches, Vanessa, understandably, seems to be missing Kobe and Gigi more than ever. On Dec. 29, addition to the bike riding video, she also shared some sweet footage of Kobe and Gianna at a Lakers game that was taken one year prior.
“My babies,” she wrote alongside one video. “1 year ago. My Kob-Kob and my GiGi.” The second video, she captioned, “My gorgeous Gigi and handsome booboo. Mambacita and Black Mamba forever.” In addition to Bianka and Gianna, Kobe and Vanessa also have two other daughters, Natalia, 17, and Capri, 1.
Vanessa, Natalia, Bianka and Capri were joined by Ciara and her kids, Future Jr., 6, and Sienna, 3., on the winter trip. Meanwhile, Ciara’s husband, Russell, was back at home playing with his football team, the Seattle Seahawks. He helped lead them to win the NFC West after a victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Dec. 27. Before the game, Russell honored Kobe and Gianna by rocking a Lakers jersey and filming an emotional video on the football field about their inspiring legacy.
