    Vanessa Bryant Will Never Forget The First Time She Laid Eyes On Kobe Bryant

    "11/27/99."

    Vanessa Bryant has a very important date forever marked in her calendar.

    After she spent her first Thanksgiving holiday without her late husband, Kobe Bryant, and her late daughter, Gianna Bryant, Vanessa went on Instagram to remember when she met her hubby.

    "Love at first sight 11/27/99 #21," she captioned a lovely post of them at Disneyland.

    They were so smitten with each other that they got engaged just six months after they met.

    To commemorate that day, Kobe took Vanessa back to Disneyland in 2019, and you can bet that he showed her a great time.

    “On this day 20 years ago I met my best friend, my Queen @vanessabryant,” Kobe wrote on Instagram in November 2019. “I decided to take her on a date to Disneyland tonight to celebrate old school style (pre 4princesses) I love you my Mamacita per sempre.”

    Aww!

    Since their deaths, there isn’t a day that goes by that Vanessa doesn’t think about the tragic passing of Kobe and Gianna.

    Kobe and Gianna, you are deeply missed ❤️ .
