Vanessa Bryant is thinking of Kobe Bryant on what would have been their 20th wedding anniversary.
On April 18, the 38-year-old shared some beautiful memories in a special Instagram tribute to her late husband.
"Happy Anniversary, baby. I love you. 20 years," she wrote alongside a photo of the couple kissing at the altar.
Vanessa also posted a video of her and Kobe, writing, "I love you for now, forever and for always @kobebryant." In the clip, Kobe is declaring his undying love for his wife, saying, "I love her tremendously. We're best friends too. It's a blessing." Watch above.
Kobe and his daughter Gianna died on January 26, 2020, in a tragic helicopter crash.
At the time, Vanessa wrote about the accident saying, "We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri."
Kobe and Vanessa met during filming for a music video in 1999. The basketball star proposed to Vanessa after she turned 18, and the pair got married in 2001.
They welcomed four children together, daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, Capri, 1, and the late 13-year-old Gianna.

Earlier this year, Vanessa told People her daughters "help me smile through the pain" of losing her husband.
"They know mommy has hard days but when I see their faces when they realize that I've been crying, it makes me straighten up and push through for them," she said. "I counter it with making them smile about something ... Always finding the light in darkness."

She added, "I can't say that I'm strong every day. I can't say that there aren't days when I feel like I can't survive to the next."
