Kobe Bryant, Vanessa Bryant


And a baby makes five!

Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are expecting their third child and the expecting mother took to Instagram to announce the happy family news.

"Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #blessed #babymamba #thankful," the 34-year-old wrote alongside an adorable onesie and baby sneakers. After Vanessa made her account private, Kobe shared the same picture and caption on his own account.

The famous couple has two daughters together, Natalia Diamante Bryant and Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant. Kobe is expected to attend tomorrow night's 2016 ESPY Awards ceremony, where he will be presented with the Icon Award by none other than Justin Timberlake.

Back in mid-April, the former Los Angeles Lakers star played his final game before entering retirement on the court.

He tweeted a heartfelt message to his legions of fans after stepping out of Staples Center, writing, "Last night was the final chapter to an incredible story. I walk away at peace knowing my love for the game & this city will never be broken."

It's quite an exciting time in the Bryant household—congratulations to both Kobe and Vanessa!
