The 31-year-old opened up about life after loss in an interview with People in March 2021, admitting at the time, “I can’t say I’m strong every day. I can’t say there isn’t a day when I feel like I can’t hold on. for the next one.”

“Trying to focus on “finding the light in the dark,” Vanessa says, drawing inspiration from Kobe and Gigi.

“I think the best way to describe it is that Kobe and Gigi motivated me to keep going,” he explained at the time. “They inspire me to try harder and get better every day. Their love is unconditional and they motivate me in so many different ways.”

She also says that she is motivated by her daughters, who inspire her to keep going. “This pain is unimaginable [tetapi] You just have to get up and push forward,” he said.

“Laying in bed crying isn’t going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again. But getting out of bed and pushing forward will make the day better for my daughter and for me. So that’s what I did.”
