Pau Gasol Names His Newborn Daughter After Kobe Bryant's Daughter, Gianna

Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

Pau Gasol and his wife welcomed their first child, a beautiful daughter.

Pau was a teammate and a very close friend of Kobe Bryant.

He wrote on social media, and "our little one has finally arrived. Elisabet Gianna Gasol. A very meaningful name for our super beautiful daughter. #GirlDad."

Vanessa Bryant is the godmother!

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