Vanessa Bryant honored her late husband, Kobe, over social media on Father's Day by labeling the former Los Angeles Lakers star as the "BEST daddy in the world."

She posted a photo of Kobe with all four of their daughters on Instagram and punctuated the message with "#GirlDad", a phrase that Kobe used to show his pride in having daughters.

Sunday marks the Bryant family's first Father's Day without Kobe, who died Jan. 26 at age 41 in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. The crash also claimed the life of his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others.

Kobe Bryant was an 18-time NBA All-Star, five-time NBA champion and two-time NBA Finals MVP in a 20-year career with the Lakers.
