Saturday, Vanessa shared one of the many heartfelt ways Kobe honored her during his life. Kobe's sports fiction book, Epoca the Tree of Ecrof: Island of the Gods -- which was created by the NBA star and written by Ivy Claire -- was released in November 2019, just months before his tragic death on Jan. 26. Among the book's first pages was a dedication to Vanessa.
"For Vanessa. Thank you for always being the Realist to my Dreamer," it reads.
Vanessa captioned her post, "Always learning from the best. ❤️My Boo-Boo, my Dreamer.... 📖."
The couples' youngest child, 10-month-old Capri, was also featured in a sweet post on Vanessa's Instagram on Saturday. "I love you Koko Bean 😘❤️," she wrote alongside a precious photo of herself giving her baby girl a kiss.
Vanessa recently celebrated her first Mother's Day since the deaths of Kobe and their 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
"I love being your mama @nataliabryant, Gianna, Bianka and Capri. #MyWorld ❤️❤️❤️❤️" she wrote on Instagram in a tribute to her girls.
Vanessa added in her touching caption, "You are all the very best of mommy and daddy. ❤️."
