“My dad and I used to go on movie marathons and watch as many movies as we could,” Natalia remarked. “After that, we would always discuss it for months while analyzing as many movies as we could.” She continued, saying, “I was like, ‘I want to do this forever.'” It had really motivated her.

The oldest child of Vanessa and Kobe Bryant is named Natalia. Bianka, Capri, and Gianna, the couple’s other three daughters, perished in a helicopter crash in January 2020 with Kobe.
