Kobe Bryant’s NBA career may be over, but it doesn’t sound like he’s going to be bored when the 2016-17 NBA season tips off. Since making his NBA retirement official, Kobe has turned to Steven Spielberg for help getting his movie production company Kobe Studios off the ground. He also teamed up with Nike to travel around the globe as part of his Mamba Mentality Tour. And according to an Instagram post he put up late Tuesday night, things are about to get even busier for Kobe and his wife Vanessa sometime in the near future because they are expecting their third daughter. They announced it by posting this adorable photo of a "BABY MAMBA" T-shirt alongside a pair of baby Kobe sneakers:
Kobe and Vanessa already have two daughters, Natalia and Gianna. A few weeks before retiring back in April, Kobe revealed that he was looking forward to spending more time with them once he walked away from the game of basketball for good, especially since he had missed being with them so much over the course of the last decade due to his NBA career.
"They understand the concept that this is something that I’ve been doing since I was 3," he said. "This is my entire life…It’s like, 'Dad’s losing that passion now. He’s not going to be able to do that same thing he’s done forever.' But at the same time, I’ll be around a lot more. So they’re excited about that."
Between reuniting with his daughters and welcoming a new baby into the mix, life is about to get busier than ever for Kobe. So much for "retiring."
