Kobe Bryant had a very romantic side
Vanessa Bryant said Kobe always used to think outside the box. That's why he always surprised her with very sweet gifts, especially on Valentine's Day. "He was so thoughtful, even while working hard to be the best athlete," said Vanessa.
The blue dress from The Notebook was very special to Kobe and Vanessa
