Kobe Bryant's 11-month-old daughter Capri seen taking her first steps in adorable video shared by Vanessa
Vanessa Bryant has shared a cute video showing the first steps of 11-month-old daughter Capri just four months after the devastating deaths of husband Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna.
Capri is seen in the candid video, which Vanessa shared to her Instagram on May 24, walking from her aunt Sophie to her mother, The Sun reports.
Capri received a round of applause as she took multiple steps on her own and maintained her balance while being cutely clad in a baby pink outfit.
"I'm so proud of you! I knew you were going to do it," her mother was heard shouting as she hugged her youngest child and kissed her cheek with pride.
"My baby!!!! So proud of my Koko Bean," Vanessa captioned the video. "Capri took her first steps from her auntie Sophie to mama today."

Capri was born to Vanessa and her late husband Kobe Bryant last June. At the time, they called their youngest "our little princess" in an Instagram post. Vanessa is also mother to Natalie, Bianka, and the late Gianna.
NBA superstar Bryant, 41, and daughter Gianna, 13, died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California along with seven others on January 26 this year.
The other victims of the crash were Payton Chester, 13, Sarah Chester, 46, Alyssa Altobelli, 14, Keri Altobelli, 46, John Altobelli, 56, and Christina Mauser, 38 — all of whom were traveling to Kobe's Mamba Academy for a basketball match.
An insider told Us Weekly how the grief is still fresh and all-consuming for Vanessa, adding that "no two days are the same for her" as the loss of her doting husband and daughter is "still unfathomable" to her.
"It’s the heaviest loss a mother and wife could possibly experience," the source added.
A month after the deadly crash, on the day of Bryant's memorial, Vanessa filed a 72-page lawsuit against the aircraft's owner, Island Express.
Vanessa's latest post came after it was revealed that she has inherited a $200 million stake in sports drink Bodyarmor, which the late Los Angeles Lakers legend reportedly purchased for $5 million in 2013. Bryant was the fourth-largest shareholder in Bodyarmor at the time of his death. The American sports drink company is reportedly set to surpass $1 billion in retail revenue for the first time this year.
The NBA legend bought a 10 percent stake in the company for $5 million in March 2013.
Bodyarmor, which was co-founded by Smartwater mogul Mike Repole and Fuze Beverage brain Lance Collins two years earlier, was aiming to break the market monopoly enjoyed by Gatorade.
After purchasing the stake, Bryant became an indispensable brand ambassador for the company, taking a seat on its board of directors and supervising its advertising campaigns.
The company reached a valuation of $2 billion after Coca Cola purchased a minority stake in 2018, skyrocketing Bryant's share worth to at least $200 million.
Following Bryant's death earlier this year, Vanessa went on to inherit his stake and took his seat at the company's board of directors.
