Natalia Diamante Bryant is the firstborn child to 18-time NBA All-Star player Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant. She is an 18-year-old model and a volleyball player from Los Angeles. She is the eldest among Bryant’s children.
Unfortunately, Kobe and his daughter, Gianna, lost their lives in a tragic helicopter crash in January 2020. The news was a great shock to Natalia. Kobe had an estimated net worth of $600 million. He has earned around $3oo million from his NBA contracts and up to $350 million from off-court deals.
According to the reports, the five-time NBA champion, Kobe Bryant, had already set up the will prior to his death. Even though there are no clear sources about Natalia’s net worth, the will states that she has inherited 10% of Kobe’s worth being the eldest child. That makes Natalia’s net worth around $6 million. Being a passionate volleyball player, Natalia earned an assertive backup and support from Kobe Bryant despite being a famous basketball player. Currently, she is playing for Mamba Ballers. Natalia’s popularity significantly increased when Kobe uploaded her on-court volleyball performances on social media. Her interest to be a part of the movie industry was recognized by him.
Apart from all these, Kobe was also very supportive to pick a profession of her own. Whether it may be a model or a player, he always encouraged Natalia. “My dad”, was an instantaneous response from the young model who has signed with IMG Models. “My dad and I would always watch as many movies as we can and we’d go on movie marathons. And then we’d always analyze as many movies as we can and we’d talk about it for months”, Natalia recalled. Kobe was very motivating as a father, he was one of the inspirations for her to pursue an Oscar. In 2018, he had bagged an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film “Dear Basketball”.
