Pau was a teammate and very good friend of Kobe Bryant. He wrote on social media, our little one has finally arrived. Elisabet Gianna Gasol. A very meaningful name for our super beautiful daughter. #GirlDad.


Vanessa Bryant shared a photo of mom, dad and baby on her Instagram and captioned the photo, my goddaughter is here! Congratulations love you 3 so much. So touched by your request to honor my Gigi. Can’t wait to hold Elisabet Gianna Gasol.
