Natalia Bryant just got accepted to USC!

“I got in!” says Natalia, in the video, that shakes up and down, presumably because she and her mom are both jumping in celebration of yet another college acceptance for the eldest of the Byrant girls.

Mama Vanessa Bryant, the late Kobe Bryant’s widow, congratulated her daughter, by posting the video to Instagram.

“Tears of joy,” captioned the former model when speaking about her daughter. “I’m SO happy for you Nani! I know daddy is so PROUD OF YOU. I am so PROUD OF YOU!!”

The proud mama went on to remark on how hard Natalia has worked to excel, especially in what one can only describe as a painful year for the family. “Your hard work and dedication was so worth it,” she continued in the post. “You pushed through the most excruciating pain imaginable and you succeeded. I wish Daddy and Gigi were physically here to celebrate but I know they’re here in spirit. We love you so much!”

In a separate post, Vanessa posted a video showing off the mini-celebration she had prepped just in case she got accepted.

“Congratulations Nani Banani!!!!!! If you wouldn’t have been accepted I would’ve had to have stabbed these balloons in the guest room and have thrown all this away. Thank goodness you got in.”

The beaming mom revealed she had specially made some Air Force 1s in USC colors, and had ordered them months ago!

“I had these shoes made for @nataliabryant in hopes she’d get into her top school. Daddy and Gigi are ALWAYS here. Forever and always Principessa.”

The teen has also recently signed with IMG models, and has not revealed which school she has picked yet, but something tells me we might already know.
