Ciara has taken to social media where she melted hearts with a very sweet picture of her baby bump while wearing Kobe Bryant’s iconic Los Angeles Lakers number 24 jersey.
Ciara and Russell Wilson, who are expecting their second child together, (this will be Ciara’s third child), made the big announcement a few days after both Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, were killed in a helicopter crash.
In several posts, Ciara sent her love and prayers to Kobe’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, and her three remaining girls.
