Pau Gasol Gianna Bryant

Pau Gasol pays tribute to Kobe Bryant’s daughter with newborn’s name

Pau Gasol is continuing to be one of the greatest teammates of all time.

Pau Gasol and his wife, Cat, honored the memory of Kobe Bryant and his family by naming their first-born daughter Elisabet Gianna Gasol, the former Los Angeles Lakers big man announced Sunday.

“Our little one has finally arrived!! The delivery went really well and we couldn’t be happier!! Elisabet Gianna Gasol, a very meaningful name for our super beautiful daughter!! #girldad,” Gasol wrote.

Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, celebrated the birth by announcing on Instagram: “My goddaughter is here!!!!” Gasol commented on her post, writing: “We love you sis! You’re going to be the best Godmother to our Ellie Gianna.”

Gasol, who teamed with Bryant in Los Angeles from 2008 to ’14, winning two championships together, maintained a friendship with the Bryant family long after leaving the Lakers.

Pau is a real deal ride or die type friend.
