NBA legend Kobe Bryant has welcomed his fourth daughter with wife Vanessa Bryant.

Vanessa announced the birth Friday afternoon on her Instagram account. In the post she revealed they named their 4th child, Capri Kobe Bryant.

She gave birth to Capri yesterday on June 20, 2019 and posted a photo of their newborn’s blanket.

Kobe also posted on his social media to celebrate the arrival writing the caption, “We are beyond excited that our baby girl “Koko” has arrived!! #bryantbunch #4princesses #blessed”

Many of their famous friends were quick to congratulate Vanessa and Kobe on the birth of their new kid.

Chris Bosh’s wife, Adrienne wrote, "Congratulations."

40-year-old Kobe and 37-year-old Vanessa already share three daughters: 15-year-old Natalia Diamante Bryant, 12-year-old Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant and 2-year-old Bianka Bella Bryant.

The two were high school sweethearts and have been married since 2001. They hit a rocky patch when Vanessa filed for divorce but the two reconciled soon after. They seem to have been solid ever since working out their issues.

Kobe Bryant retired from the NBA in 2016 and has been focused on his many other ventures since leaving the league. He even went on to win a 2018 Academy Award for “Best Animated Short Film” for his movie “Dear Basketball."

The two first announced they were expecting another child back in January. Kobe wrote at the time, "Vanessa and I are beyond excited to announce that we are expecting another #mambacita to go along with Natalia, Gianna and Bianka #blessed #bryantbunch #daddysprincesses #love #2019"

Vanessa also shared her pregnancy journey with fans, regularly posting baby bump photos with Kobe.
