Vanessa Bryant announces that her oldest daughter Natalia Bryant got accepted into the University of Southern California (USC) on Tuesday. She shared a reaction video on Instagram where we can see Natalia jumping up and down yelling, “I got in!”

Vanessa wrote in the caption, “Tears of joy. I’m SO happy for you Nani! I know daddy is so PROUD OF YOU. I am so PROUD OF YOU!! Your hard work and dedication was so worth it.”
She continues: “You pushed through the most excruciating pain imaginable and you succeeded. I wish Daddy and Gigi were physically here to celebrate but I know they’re here in spirit. We love you so much! #USC #Trojan #FightOn ❤️”
Along with a room full of red and gold balloons, Vanessa also surprised her daughter with a custom-pair of Nike Kobe sneakers with a handwritten signature above the sole. The sneakers also have the USC logo on the back of the heel and a yellow Nike swoosh. She posted the shoes on her Instagram with the caption, “Every step of the way.”
It’s no surprise that Vanessa wants her daughter close to home. Earlier this year, she revealed that Natalia was accepted into Loyola Marymount University, the University of California, Irvine, and NYU.
NYU is said to be one of her top schools but is obviously on the other coast. Vanessa wrote, “So cute. NYU is one of her top schools..@nataliabryant chose not to apply [early decision] to her top five schools. I will do my best to keep her in Cali just like I kept her daddy here. #CaliGirlForever,”
