Sharing a photo from the wedding day to Instagram to mark their anniversary, Vanessa wrote: “Happy Anniversary, baby. I love you. 20 years. ❤️ @kobebryant.”

Vanessa and Kobe share four children – Gianna, Natalia, Bianka and Capri.

Vanessa recently opened up about the “unimaginable pain” of losing her husband and daughter, telling PEOPLE magazine: “I can’t say that I’m strong every day.”

“I can’t say that there aren’t days when I feel like I can’t survive to the next. This pain is unimaginable [but] you just have to get up and push forward.”

“Lying in bed crying isn’t going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again. But getting out of bed and pushing forward is going to make the day better for my girls and for me. So that’s what I do.”
