Kobe Bryant Talks Four Daughters on Jimmy Kimmel

Kobe Bryant Joked That the Second Daughter "Is Like a Tornado," and He's Not Wrong!

When you think of Kobe Bryant, you think of his famous "Mamba Mentality" and his skills on the basketball court from his 20-year career as a Los Angeles Laker, but at home, he's a softy. The retired basketball player welcomed his fourth daughter with his wife Vanessa just two months ago, and by the looks of it, he couldn't be more obsessed with his daughters. Kobe recently sat down on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he spoke about being a father to four girls, his appreciation for tennis, and his new fantasy-adventure book, Legacy and the Queen. "I love having girls," he said. "They're awesome."

Kobe hilariously revealed that he was hesitant to give his newborn the middle name "Kobe," but Capri Kobe Bryant does have a nice ring to it. And if you're wondering what the five-time NBA champion is like in the delivery room, well, he's absolutely nothing like he is on the court. When talking about his four daughters, he was shocked to admit that his oldest daughter, who is 16 years old, is relatively calm and chill, but his second daughter is quite the opposite. "I always say if you look at the eldest daughter, she's always like the calm, responsible, thoughtful one, and then the second sister is like a tornado, like Elsa and Anna," he said. "That's certainly like our house, and then we have two other ones."

He and Vanessa have four daughters: 16-year-old Natalia, 13-year-old Gianna, 2-year-old Bianka, and 2-month-old Capri, and it sounds like an amazing family dynamic. Watch the adorable video above.
