This Mother Day Ad Featuring Vanessa And Natalia Bryant Is All We Needed Right Now

It’s been more than a year of ups and downs for the Bryant family after losing both Kobe and 13-year-old Gianna. But out of their incredible loss and mourning, the family has come together and celebrated many milestones and special moments. From Natalia’s modeling career and acceptance to USC to Vanessa’s branding campaign, the family has kept themselves busy.

Now, mother and daughter are teaming up for a beautiful Mother’s Day ad and it’s everything we could want and need right now.

Vanessa and Natalia Bryant are starring in Mother’s Day ad for Bulgari.

Few people have been through as much as the Bryant family has over the past year. But they continue to show just how resilient and united they are. Case in point: Vanessa and Natalia are starring in a Mother’s Day ad for Italian jewellery company Bulgari.

The duo stars in a new campaign video for Bulgari and Vogue titled “A Mother’s Legacy,” in which the 18-year-old tells her mother, “You’re the strongest person I’ve ever known. We connect on a whole different level, and I feel like that’s rare in mother-daughter relationships.”

Replies Vanessa, 38, “I wish that I had someone like you when I was growing up … You’re like the constant North Star to all your friends.”

Natalia also praises her mother for “always [looking] for the positive side of any situation” and teaching her to do the same, adding, “You’ve always been my rock my entire life.”

Reaction to the moving ad has been swift and positive.

The family’s famous friends couldn’t get enough of the moving clip. “This is the most stunning and heartfelt video. You both are constant lights,” Lily Collins commented on Natalia’s Instagram post of the Mother’s Day-themed ad. “This warmed my heart so much,” singer Chloe Bailey added.

The ad for Bulgari is also just the beginning for 18-year-old Natalia who recently signed with IMG Models as she looks to pursue a career in fashion.

While Mother’s Day is a happy and joyous occasion for so many people, it can be a tough day for others. For many people who have lost their mothers, Mother’s Day is a sad reminder of what they’ve lost. Naya Rivera’s ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, made that apparent when he posted a heart wrenching tribute to the mother of his child on Instagram.

On Sunday, Ryan Dorsey took to Instagram to celebrate the woman that gave birth to their son, Josey.

Dorsey posted a candid photo of Naya Rivera and Josey sitting and smiling in front of a bowl of ice cream. “We can’t say the word happy but we’ll say thank you for being a mother & giving me this sweet amazing boy,” he wrote in the caption. He hash-tagged the post #MothersDay. This year was the first time that Ryan Dorsey and his son spent Mother’s Day without Naya Rivera.

Naya Rivera’s friends and fans flooded Dorsey’s posts with comments and well-wishes. Jenna Ushkowitz, who played Tina on “Glee” added a flurry of heart emojis to Naya Rivera’s Mother’s Day tribute. Heather Morris, who played Santana’s girlfriend, Brittany, on “Glee”, wrote: “This broke me [heart emojis] I love you.”

This isn’t the first time Ryan Dorsey opened up about the grief he’s been experiencing since Naya Rivera unexpectedly died last July from a boating accident.

On January 12th–Naya Rivera’s birthday–Dorsey also posted a tribute to Rivera on his Instagram page. “Just as surreal as it is real that you’re gone. If that makes sense, but none of this still makes any sense,” he wrote. “34…I could just hear you saying ‘Ah, I’m old AF now!’ Ha…Rest easy old lady.”

Last September, Dorsey also opened up about how difficult it was to raise a young child who is actively grieving the death of his mother. Dorsey explained how he has had to help his son cope with the death of his mother. “You tell him [his mother is] an angel now and she’s with God and she’s in heaven, and he says ‘I wanna go there. How do I get there?’” Dorsey explained in a candid Instagram video. “I wouldn’t wish that upon any of your ears to have to hear that. To hear those words come out of the sweetest soul you know.”
