Vanessa Bryant, wife of late NBA champ Kobe Bryant, surprised his sister Sharia with a new Tesla electric car this week. She also shared a video of the dealer going over the features of the vehicle while the women smiled for the camera.
“Surprise @shariawash! We love you!!! Tesla Tunnel, here she comes!! Vegas to Cali #BoringTunnel,” Vanessa Bryant, 39, wrote on Instagram beside a photo of the pair in front of the new car. The post also included a video of Sharia getting teary-eyed over the gesture.
The “Tesla Tunnel” refers to a proposed underground transportation system meant to connect Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Elon Musk’s The Boring Company is behind the project, which is currently limited to two .7-mile tunnels beneath the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Is that my bestie in a Tessie? Do you like your car?” Vanessa asks in the clip. “OMG! So this happened today,” Sharia, 45, responded in an Instagram post of her own. “Thank you so much V! I’m still speechless! This is absolutely amazing Love you!!”
