Kobe Bryant and Pregnant Wife Vanessa Hit Oscars Afterparty – and Celebrate with In-N-Out Burger

Vanessa Bryant is one gorgeous mama-to-be.

Kobe Bryant‘s pregnant wife accompanied the basketball legend to the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Sunday night, where she showed off her baby bump under a long-sleeved column-style black gown by Tom Ford that featured a dramatically low-cut lace-up neckline.

Bryant, 40, looked equally glammed up, coordinating with his wife in a classic black tuxedo as the couple smiled while posing for photos ahead of the event.

Their star-studded night out didn’t preclude the parents-to-be from indulging in some fast food, though. Like many a west-coast-based celeb, Bryant and Vanessa, 36, have a specific chain of choice: In-N-Out Burger! And the folks at Vanity Fair seem to understand that quite well.

“This time last year we were celebrating an #Oscar win. This year at the Vanity Fair party we are enjoying our burgers while celebrating this year’s Oscar winners,” the former Lakers star — who took home the Oscar for Best Animated Short in 2018 — captioned a pair of photos, showing himself and his wife posing at the party and, later, chowing down on their burgers.

Bryant and Vanessa kicked off 2019 with the extra-sweet news that they are expecting a fourth baby girl to join their daughters Bianka Bella, 2, Gianna Maria-Onore, 12, and Natalia Diamante, 16.

“Vanessa and I are beyond excited to announce that we are expecting another #mambacita to go along with Natalia, Gianna and Bianka,” the athlete captioned his Jan. 1 Instagram post: a sparkly graphic reading “New Year, New Baby! Baby Mamba on the Way 2019.”

In a matching post up on her Instagram account, Vanessa revealed that their daughters Natalia and Gianna are “super excited to welcome another little baby sister to love.”

While opening up about his “little princesses” in April 2017 to Extra, Bryant said his wife was hoping for a son to join their daughters one day — in fact, “I think Vanessa wants a boy more than I do,” he revealed, adding, “I hear boys are just walking tornadoes. We’ll see.”

The following July, Bryant admitted to Extra, “Guys keep teasing me” about being a father of only girls.

“My friends say, ‘It takes a real man to make a boy.’ I’m like, ‘Dude, it takes a king to make a princess … get in line,’ ” he joked. “It’s pretty cool for me ’cause it’s Daddy’s little princesses.”

The 91st Academy Awards were broadcast live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
