Natalia Bryant just turned 18 last month and despite her father’s death over a year ago, she is winning at this life game.
The daughter of LA Lakers legend Kobe Bryant just signed a modeling contract with IMG Models. The company announced the news in a post on Monday night.
The 18-year-old said she is ‘’beyond thrilled’’ and that she has always wanted to be a model. IMG Models quoted her saying she has always been interested in fashion since a very young age.
‘’I have love for the industry and ever since I can remember I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively,’’ she said.
Natalia shared the same professional photo and statement on her own Instagram page. She added that she’s ‘’beyond thrilled and honored to be a part of the IMG family!’’
Vanessa Bryant, wife to the late Kobe, and mom to Natalia also proudly shared the post and wrote, ‘’I’m so happy for you! I love you, Nani!’’
Several models also showed their support in the comments on the various posts.
Gigi Hadid simply posted ‘’YES’’ with a heart emoji and shared Natalia’s photo on her Instagram story and wrote, ‘’PROUD’’.
