Vanessa Bryant turned in an emotional Instagram tribute for her late husband Kobe Bryant, who tragically died in a helicopter crash along with their daughter Gianna in January, on what would have been their 19th wedding anniversary.

"My king, my heart, my best friend. Happy 19th wedding anniversary. I miss you so much. I wish you were here to hold me in your arms. I love you," she wrote alongside a photo of their younger selves snuggled up on a couch.

She also shared a 2001 interview of Kobe sharing what made her "the one". It was in that same year that the two officially tied the knot—two years after meeting each other during a music video shoot.

Although Vanessa wasn't able to celebrate it with her husband, her daughters as well as Kobe's former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Pau Gasol and his wife Cat surprised her with gorgeous flowers as an anniversary gift.
