Vanessa Bryant reveals family friend Sydney Leroux got a tattoo of Gianna’s jersey number

Her late husband Kobe Bryant was honored onstage at the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday.

And on Sunday, Vanessa Bryant, 37, shared a touching tribute for her daughter Gianna.

She posted a photo of a new tattoo family friend Sydney Leroux got in honor of her Gianna’s memory – featuring her jersey number.

Vanessa posted a closeup of the fresh ink, which was done up in a simple block numeral with black ink.

‘Gigi you were a star. Your dad told me that you were going to be better than he was,’ she wrote in an Instagram tribute shortly after the two were killed in a helicopter crash along with seven other people on January 26.

‘You had the gift no matter what you were playing. I know you’ll be looking down on your mom and your sisters with your big smile while shooting hoops with your dad, doing what you both love. 2 will always be ours.’
