Kobe Bryant’s daughter Natalia signs with IMG Models

Natalia Bryant could be headed for the catwalk.

The eldest daughter of late basketball star Kobe Bryant has signed with IMG Models, the agency announced on Monday.

“I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age,” Bryant, 18, said in a statement shared to Instagram.

“I have a love for the industry and ever since I can remember I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.”

Bryant reposted IMG’s announcement on her own page, adding, “I am beyond thrilled and honored to be a part of the IMG family!!”

Proud mom Vanessa Bryant also shared IMG’s post, writing, “I’m so happy for you! I love you Nani!”

Supermodels and stars alike flooded Bryant’s comments with their well wishes.

Ashley Graham commented, “Yay! Welcome to the IMG fam,” while actress Lucy Hale added, “Congrats gorgeous! This just makes total sense.”

“Proud of you Nani Boo…Welcome to the Family!” singer Ciara wrote in an Instagram Story.

Lily Aldridge, Jennifer Garner, Gigi Hadid and Cindy Crawford were among the many others who congratulated the budding model.

Bryant isn’t the only surprise addition to IMG Models’ roster in 2021, with inaugural poet Amanda Gorman, 22, and Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter Ella Emhoff, 21, also signing contracts this year.

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, on the other hand, will be leaving IMG Models after 22 years, as Page Six Style exclusively reported on Monday.
