LOS ANGELES, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa have reportedly welcomed their third child.
The 38-year-old retired NBA star and 34-year-old model welcomed another daughter this week in Orange County, according to TMZ.
Bryant and Vanessa are already parents to two daughters, 13-year-old Natalia and 10-year-old Gianna. The couple married in Dana Point, Calif., in 2001, and announced they were expecting again in July.
"Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl!!! #Blessed #BabyMamba #Thankful," the pair wrote on Instagram at the time.
"We're very blessed and very fortunate. Having three girls is a huge, huge blessing," he said.
Bryant's friend and Los Angeles Clippers player Chris Paul was among those to offer their congratulations to the new dad-of-three. Paul said it was "great" to hear Bryant had another daughter, but encouraged the star to keep trying for a son.
"Keep going 'til you get a boy!" he told TMZ. "Kobe deserves to have a little boy."
