Retired NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa shared the happy news on Tuesday that they are adding to their family.

Kobe posted an Insta-snap of a “Baby Mamba” onesie with a glittery red bow and a pair of adorable little Nike Kobe sneakers. He wrote, “Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #Blessed #BabyMamba #Thankful.”

The couple already have two daughters Natalia, 13, and Gianna, 10, and both are into sports. In fact, Gianna has inherited some of her dad’s basketball skills.

The proud father recently told ESPN, “We were shooting not too long ago and she was shooting one-dribble pullups. I asked her where does she get that from? She said, ‘From watching you.’ I didn’t know she was paying attention that much.” He added, “I watch her play and she has the same mannerisms. She’ll sit there and bite her jersey and all this other stuff. That’s a beautiful thing.”

The former Lakers star ended his 20-year basketball career in April.
