  • We're back with Kobe Bryant.

  • And Kobe is now expecting another child.

  • Congratulations.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you, thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • So you have three girls.

  • This will be your fourth daughter.

  • Fourth girl, yup.

  • Fourth girl.

  • Now is that-- were you excited to hear that you were--were you

  • hoping for a boy or--

  • No, I'm super excited.

  • I love my princesses.

  • You know, I think Vanessa--

  • Vanessa was kind of like putting a pressure on me to have a boy.

  • She said, we got to-- you can do it.

  • You can do it.

  • And then, nah, you can't do it.

  • Yeah.

  • Does that give you pressure to try again for a boy?

  • Well I would say yeah.

  • But Vanessa right now would look at me as if I was crazy.

  • She's like, no.

  • We're done.

  • That's it.

  • Well she says that now.

  • But--

  • Right.

  • Probably.

  • Now how many would you have, like, total,

  • if you could have--

  • how many kids?

  • I would go for a solid starting five.

  • Really?

  • You know what I mean?

  • And you just have your own internal basketball team,

  • you know?

  • Right.

  • Well, it sounds like you could because they're

  • doing very well.

  • We could.

  • They're doing well.

  • Yeah they are.

  • So you're busier than ever.

  • You're retired.

  • But then, since you've retired, you've

  • become a New York Times bestselling writer,

  • which, that's amazing.

  • Congratulations!

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • So that was your last book.

  • And now you have another book.

  • Yes.

  • OK.

  • And this one is "Legacy and the Queen."

  • Yes.

  • What is this about?

  • It's about a young tennis phenom that

  • finds that her true power comes from her

  • accepting her own emotions.

  • Right?

  • In our world, the power and the magic within the world

  • comes from your emotions.

  • And once she embraces that, then she finds her magic.

  • That's a great story.

  • And it's a great thing for girls to be able to--

  • because sometimes girls are not supposed

  • to be expressing their emotions so much.

  • We're supposed to be quiet.

  • Well at home, you know, dealing with my daughters

  • and watching them play sports, it's important to have--

  • I try to teach them life lessons.

  • And they just can't look at me, like, Dad, shut up.

  • You don't know what you're talking about.

  • So I figure I better put it into a sports story that involves

  • a little fantasy and magic.

  • Right.

  • This way, I can teach them without them

  • having to roll their eyes when I talk to them.

  • Well and they should read these books.

  • Do they read your books?

  • They do.

  • So they read them as I write them.

  • Oh that's great.

  • So we'll be sitting there and I'll bring back

  • a chapter or a couple ideas.

  • And they'll look at me and be like, Dad,

  • that's a really bad idea.

  • Oh they give you notes?

  • Oh all the time.

  • Oh good.

  • Or that's great, Dad.

  • Keep doing that.

  • Well that's great.

  • Because then you really get the feedback right away.

  • Well they don't pull punches, that's for sure.

  • And are you going to be the JK Rowling's of the sports

  • fantasy book world?

  • No.

  • The goal for us is really try to find great creative writers

  • and try to help them with their own careers

  • and launch their careers.

  • I just come up with the idea.

  • And then, you know, these writers

  • just take it to another level.

  • That's fantastic.

  • Well it's a great idea.

  • And the last time you were here, I have to ask,

  • you we gave you a Harry Potter robe.

  • Yes.

  • Because you're a big fan.

  • And there's a-- so you are wearing it?

  • I am wearing it.

  • That's great.

  • I am wearing it.

  • OK.

  • In all my wizardry.

  • I got for your new baby so you all can match--

  • Oh my god!

  • Are you kidding?

  • That's amaze-- this is amazing.

  • Are you kidding me right now?

  • I'm telling you.

  • Yo.

  • Yup.

  • It's good.

  • Daddy Dumbledore and Baby Dumbledore.

  • Yeah.

  • All right.

  • You can preorder "Legacy and the Queen" now on Amazon.

  • The book comes out September 3rd.

We're back with Kobe Bryant.
