Pau Gasol names daughter after late Gianna Bryant
Pau Gasol surely made Kobe and Gianna Bryant smile from above.
The Spanish baller announced that he and his wife Cat gave birth to a little girl on Sunday.
“Our little one has finally arrived!! The delivery went really well, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Gasol on his Instagram post.
And the name of Pau’s daughter? Elisabet Gianna — a tribute to Kobe’s daughter, Gigi, who was also tragically killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.
“A very meaningful name for our super beautiful daughter,” Pau wrote.
