Pregnant Ciara and her husband, Russell Wilson, are taking a moment to remember Kobe Bryant, who was one of nine victims that died in a helicopter crash, last month. On February 2, the couple rocked matching outfits, which honored the late 41-year-old, at the Super Bowl 2020.
In the adorable photos shared to social media, Ciara, 34, rocked a gold and purple Los Angeles Lakers jersey that had Kobe’s name and number on it. She wore her hair in a half up and half down hairstyle with dark sunglasses. To complete the look, Ciara sported baggy denim jeans.
During their outing, Ciara posted a selfie where she posed next to Russell, 31, who rocked a white, purple and gold Los Angeles Lakers jersey that was similar to his wife’s. After sharing the photos, fans quickly filled the comments section with praise and gushed over the matching outfits.
“Bomb and pregnant, I love to see it,” one fan wrote. “Best baby bump ever,” another fan wrote. A third commented, “God, bless the both of you.”
Following the devastating news of Kobe’s passing, Ciara shared her condolences to Instagram. “This news is heartbreaking. I am lost for words. Praying for @VanessaBryant, the Bryant family, and other families that have lost someone. Rest In Paradise Kobe and Gianna,” Ciara wrote alongside a photo of Kobe and his daughter, Gianna, who also died in the helicopter crash.
Russell also revealed that he was crushed after learning that Kobe passed away. “You were one of my greatest inspirations. You will forever be missed. #RIP Kobe and Gianna. #MambaMentality ??????,” he wrote as his caption alongside a photo of him and Kobe on a baseball field.
Like Ciara and Russell, coheadliner, Jennifer Lopez, also paid tribute to Kobe during her memorable performance at this year’s halftime show. While Jennifer, 50, performed her hit, “Let’s Get Loud,” with her 11-year-old daughter, Emme, the stage lit up with purple and gold colors in honor of Kobe’s longtime basketball team.
