Ex-Lakers star Pau Gasol announces birth of daughter, who’s named after Gianna Bryant

Former Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol found a touching way to honor his late friend, Kobe Bryant, and daughter, Gianna Bryant, following the birth of his daughter.

Earlier this year, Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, along with seven other passengers tragically passed away in a helicopter crash on January 26. After that, Gasol announced on Twitter the couple have made a decision to name her Elisabet Gianna Gasol in honor of Gigi.

For example, Gasol and his wife shared a boat trip with Vanessa and her daughters - Natalia, Bianka and Capri - last month near San Francisco. Old photos of Gasol visiting the Bryant home and playing with Kobe's daughters will absolutely melt your heart. So close, that Kobe named Gasol the godfather of his children.

The elder Gasol played with the elder Bryant for six-and-a-half seasons in L.A. The two went to the NBA Finals three straight years from 2008 to 2010, winning back-to-back championships in the process. Vanessa wrote. "Congratulations. Love you 3 so much!"

Bryant also shared a number of poignant tributes to his late teammate later in August, on what would have been his 42nd birthday. A better scorer, better mentor, better father, better champion.

And now in his immediate future, Gasol will be focusing on his family. "He'll be always present with me and with all of us, in certain degrees and different ways".
