Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant took to Instagram to announce he and his wife Vanessa are expecting a fourth baby girl.

He posted an image with the words ‘New Year, New Baby! Baby Mamba on the way 2019.’

In the caption, Kobe, 40, wrote: ‘Vanessa and I are beyond excited to announce that we are expecting another #mambacita to go along with Natalia, Gianna and Bianka.’

The former NBA Superstar and his wife share daughters Natalia, 15, Gianna, 12, and Bianka, 2.  

Kobe’s wife also shared the same news on her Instagram, telling her followers: ‘Kobe and I are so happy to add another baby blessing to our family!’

‘Bianka will have a new baby sibling to play with and Natalia and Gianna are super excited to welcome another little baby sister to love.’ 

Kobe met former model and dancer Vanessa when he was 21 and she was 17 and they became engaged after six months of dating in May 2000. 

They married in 2001.  

Now they’re about to have child #4. 

All I want is for Kobe to have one boy, is that too much to ask?
