Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s 18-year-old daughter, Natalia, has been accepted to Loyola Marymount University.
Proud mom Vanessa shared the news via Instagram, but it doesn’t seem like she’s ready to say goodbye to her eldest just yet.
“So glad you got accepted but too far… j/k,” Vanessa, 38, wrote atop a photo of the campus, tagging Natalia.
The Bryants live just outside of Los Angeles County, about an hour away from the university. Natalia was also interested in New York University, to the chagrin of Vanessa, who’s hoping her daughter will remain in California to pursue her higher education.
“So cute. NYU is one of her top schools..@nataliabryant chose not to apply [early decision] to her top five schools. I will do my best to keep her in Cali just like I kept her daddy here. #CaliGirlForever,” Vanessa said on social media in February.
Natalia has also been accepted into the University of Oregon and is still awaiting a reply from USC.
Wherever she decides to study, the teen will be carrying quite the load, as she recently also landed a contract with IMG Models.
Earlier this month, Vanessa said that it’s her daughters who give her the strength to “smile through the pain” following the tragic deaths of Kobe and their 13-year-old, Gianna, in a helicopter crash last year.
“I can’t say that I’m strong every day,” Vanessa told People. “I can’t say that there aren’t days when I feel like I can’t survive to the next.”
