Natalia Bryant is praising mom Vanessa Bryant for her strength.

In Vogue and Bulgari's touching new Mother's Day campaign, Natalia shared how her mother Vanessa has inspired her, more than one year after the death of her father, NBA legend Kobe Bryant, and 13-year-old sister Gianna Bryant, in a helicopter crash.

On April 23, Natalia, 18, posted the video campaign, which features the two women wearing sparkling Bulgari jewelry, on Instagram. She wrote in the caption, "Thank you @voguemagazine and @bulgari , I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to express the appreciation and admiration that I have for my mother and the legacy she has bestowed upon me. Forever grateful for what you've taught me. I love you @vanessabryant."

"People may not remember what you said or what you did, but they'll remember how you made them feel," Natalia said in the video. "That's the lesson I've always taken, that I've carrier throughout my whole life."

She added, "You're the strongest person I've ever known. We connect on a whole different level, and I feel like that's rare for mother-daughter relationships."

Vanessa also gushed over the teenager, saying, "I wish I had someone like you when I was growing up. You're the constant North Star to all your friends." Natalia also applauded her mom for "always looking for the positive side in any situation."

Vanessa, who is also mom to Capri and Bianka, also shared the video to Instagram, writing in the caption, "Leave a legacy. It's not just a mother's love but the legacy we leave behind. I loved having the opportunity to spend time with my daughter Natalia while doing this campaign. I love you @NataliaBryant."

Earlier this month, the model honored another important legacy: That of her marriage to Kobe. She shared a photo from the couple's 2001 wedding day to Instagram, along with the caption, "Happy Anniversary, baby. I love you. 20 years."
