Congratulations are in order for Kobe Bryant and his wife, who just welcomed a new baby daughter.

The famous basketball player and his wife just welcomed the newest member of their family,  a baby girl.

Vanessa Bryant took to social media to announce the birth of their daughter, Bianka Bella Bryant. On Wednesday night she gushed about Mamba’s family new addition.

‘’Kobe and I are beyond excited to welcome our newest baby girl, Bianka!!! #BabyBlessing #SweetBaby #AnotherAngel’’ are the words of the proud mother.

The post was accompanied by a photo of the adorable baby, which was wrapped in a pink blanket and with a matching bonnet around her head

Kobe also posted a picture of the baby on Instagram and revealed that she weighed 7lb 5oz and measured 20in.

The baby was delivered on December 5.

According to TMZ Sports, who has obtained a copy of the birth certificate, the baby was delivered at 4:09 PM at Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach.

Now that the successful basketball player retired from the Lakers, he has plenty of time to enjoy the new born baby.

The couple already has two daughters, Natalia, 13 and Gianna, 10.

Chris Paul, Kobe’s friend, although super happy for him, has a message for the basketball player : “Keep going ‘til you have a boy”. The superstar added that Kobe deserves a boy, given his successful career. He would love for his friend to enjoy a bond with a son like he does with his kid.

However, the talent runs deep in the family, the rumor has it that daughter Gianna is quite skillful when it comes to sports.

The couple has been married since 2001 and the new member sure does bring a lot of joy.
