Kobe Bryant’s eldest daughter, Natalia Bryant, is now launching a career in modeling. The agency IMG Models announced their signing of Bryant last week through a post on their Instagram.

The post is captioned with a quote from Bryant, stating, “I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age. I have a love for the industry and ever since I can remember I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.”

Vanessa Bryant, Natalia’s mother, also shared the IMG post to her Instagram story. Along with the picture, fans can see a cute gif that read, “I am so proud of you.”

The Bryant family celebrated Natalia’s 18th birthday back in January, and Vanessa commemorated the day with several throwback photos of her late husband Kobe Bryant. Kobe died alongside their 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others in a tragic helicopter accident that took place in January 2020.

“We love you always and forever, forever and always,” Vanessa wrote in a caption under Natalia’s birthday post. “Happy 18th birthday to our firstborn, Natalia, our Principessa! Love always, Mommy, Daddy, Gigi, BB, and Koko❤️.”
