In a week full of exciting baby news, add another baby watch to your list, because Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa is pregnant! The retired basketball star announced on New Year’s Day that the Bryant family is growing by another baby girl.

Yes, a new “mambacita” will join big sisters, Natalia, Gianna and Bianka sometime in 2019; Bryant’s exact due date is still pending.

Since retiring from his NBA career for the Los Angeles Lakers, Bryant has penned a book, continued his charitable work and spent some much needed time with family––as we’ve seen by his Instagram photos. Many congrats to adding another lil’ lady to the Bryant clan!
