La La Anthony Talks About Raising Her Kids With Vanessa Bryant: ‘That’s My Family’

La La Anthony is opening up about her close relationship with Vanessa Bryant, whom she calls “family”.

In an interview with ET, the Puerto Rican actress and television personality talked about how her and Bryant are creating “life long bonds” between their children by having them spend quality time together. La La is mother to 13-year-old Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, while Bryant is mother to three daughters (Natalia, Bianka Bella, Capri Kobe).

Anthony has previous documented the two families hanging out together on social media.

She appears to have been spending a lot of time with Vanessa Bryant since Kobe Bryant passed away in January. She even posted an adorable TikTok video of the two of them doing the “Don’t React Challenge” where they listen to old school hits and try not to dance or move to the music. Fans were overjoyed to see Vanessa smiling and laughing again.

La La said that having her son spend time with Vanessa’s kids is “one of the most important parts” of their friendship. “They [the kids] look at themselves as cousins and they do a lot together,” she said. “Kiyan’s the oldest, but all the kids look up to Kiyan.” She went on to explain how Bryant’s kids are always calling Kiyan for advice and support.

La La got deep when she talked about how deeply the two women’s lives are intertwined.

“I’ve been a part of [Vanessa’s children’s] lives from before they were even thought of, so just to continue to be a part of their journey is amazing, to be Auntie La La and to always be there for them no matter what is an amazing thing and responsibility that I don’t take lightly,” she says.

She continued by saying, “That’s my family and that’s what it’s always gonna be. I’m always [going to have] their best interests at heart no matter what.”

This isn’t the first time La La has gotten candid about her relationship with Vanessa. Back in September, La La explained how much of an honor it is to be able to be part of Vanessa’s support system in the difficult months after her husband and her daughter’s deaths.

“You don’t dip out on your friends when it gets really hard,” she told ET. “And she’s going through something that is unimaginable, that I can’t even fathom what that feels like.”

“Just to be a friend and be there to make her laugh when she needs to, cry when she needs to, is a beautiful thing,” she continued. “But that’s what friends do for each other. I’m always going to be there for her and the girls and just want to see her just continue to be strong and amazing.”

Vanessa Bryant and Ciara Continue to Define #FriendshipGoals Through Their Unwavering Support of One Another on Social Media

Vanessa Bryant continues to shows us what true resilience looks like. On Tuesday, the widow of Kobe Bryant took to her Instagram account to post a picture with Ciara and Russel Wilson’s baby, Win Wilson.

In the adorable picture, Bryant affectionately rests her head against the 2-month-old’s head. Win also looks comfortable, his face snuggled against Bryant’s shoulder.

Bryant captioned the post: “Sweet Baby. Win” along with a heart emoji. She tagged her friend Ciara as well as Ciara’s husband, Russel Wilson.

Ciara responded with a lovely note of her own, saying, “The sweetest. We love you Auntie V.” Vanessa Bryant and Ciara have recently let the public into their friendship, sharing candid pictures of them hanging out together, their children in tow.

In August, around Kobe’s birthday, Vanessa posted a picture to her Instagram account of her and her daughters, three-year-old and one-year-old Bianka and Capri. In the photo, all of them are huddled close, smiling smiling with Ciara. Bryant was similarly affectionate in her praise for Ciara then, writing: “It takes a village. Thank you to all my loving family, amazing friends and wonderful fans for your love and support. One day at a time.”

Shortly after, Ciara posted the same photo to her own Instagram account where she wrote a touching tribute to her good friend, whom she calls “Mamba Queen”.

“Seeing you and the girls smile makes my heart smile,” she gushed. “You’re the toughest mama I know. Seeing you put one foot forward each day is admirable. It ain’t easy, but if I know one thing, Mamba Queen’s capable of it all. Love you.”

The recent much-needed facetime with loved ones is probably especially important right now for Bryant, who is embroiled in some unpleasant personal turmoil behind the scenes.

Not only has her mother been making the media rounds, accusing Vanessa of kicking her out of her home, but she recently sued the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for sharing unauthorized photos of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe and Gianna Bryant in January.

The latter case inspired a recently-passed California law that Governor Gavin Newsome just signed into action that “makes it a crime for first responders to take unauthorized photos of deceased people at the scene of an accident or crime.”

We’re glad to see that Vanessa Bryant has a strong support system around her. If anyone needs it, it is her.
