Natalia came to Springfield to accept her father’s Hall of Fame jacket the day before the ceremony. The teen did a turnaround trip as she had to fly back to Los Angeles to attend her prom on Sunday. Ciara and her husband, Russell Wilson, ensured Natalia had the support she needed to make her prom night special.

“Natalia almost missed her senior prom last night,” Vanessa Bryant told her social media fans on Monday (May 17). “When I was a senior in high school, Kobe and I were engaged and he had a playoff game the night of my prom. Kobe didn’t want me going to prom without him and I didn’t want to go without him,” the celebrity said of her prom season experience.

“When we heard Natalia’s prom night and Kobe’s Hall of Fame night was on the same night, I looked at Natalia and said, ‘Well, if it’s any consolation, daddy kept me from going to my prom, so it’s only right that he tried to keep you from going to yours,'” the celebrity mom mused. “Of course, we laughed because even in heaven, he’s still trying to make moves and keep the boys away,” Vanessa further joked.

“Natalia’s experienced so much loss, I couldn’t let her miss out on her once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go to her senior prom,” the celebrity mom said in all seriousness. “Thank you for flying out to accept daddy’s Hall of Fame jacket and fly home the next morning,” Vanessa wrote to her daughter.
