KIM Kardashian has led the stars celebrating Vanessa Bryant's birthday after the tragic death of her husband Kobe and their daughter, Gigi.
The reality star, her sister Khloe and their mom Kris Jenner sent Vanessa a lavish bouquet of flowers to mark her 38th on Tuesday.
Vanessa posted a snap of the floral display on her Instagram Stories and wrote: "Thank you @krisjenner @khloekardashian @kimkardashian."
Khloe also wrote: "Happy birthday V! This is beautiful! You deserve this so much! I pray you know how loved you are today and everyday! This is a sign he’s with you. I’m praying for you always! I love you."
Singer Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson also sent Vanessa a decadent floral arrangement.
A slew of other stars wished Vanessa a happy birthday on social media.

RHOA star Kim Zolciak-Biermann posted: "Happy birthday beautiful."
Power actress La La Anthony added: "Today is your day. We celebrate you. We love you. We got your back forever. Happy happy birthday."
NBA legend Kobe and his daughter Gigi, 13, died in a helicopter crash that also killed seven others in California in January.
Vanessa spent her birthday with her and Kobe's surviving daughters Natalia, Capri and Bianka.
The girls organised flowers and piñatas for a Cinco De Mayo-themed day.
Vanessa shared a snap of herself posing with her brood in their garden, which was filled with roses.
She wrote: "Thx to my girls for ordering these flowers and piñatas for mama."
She also dressed her youngest Capri in a rosebud embroidered pink outfit – which belonged to Gigi – and wrote: "Capri looks just her daddy (in Gigi’s outfit)!"
On the morning of her birthday, Vanessa shared a sweet love letter Kobe had written to her.
She explained to fans: "Yesterday I found an envelope labeled To: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi. I waited to open one more letter on my birthday.
"It gave me something to look forward to today. Missing the love of my life and my sweet little Mamacita – my fellow Taurus. Grateful to wake up to my 3 sweet girls today. Wish we were all together."
Vanessa paid tribute to Gigi on what would have been her 14th birthday on Friday.
She shared an Instagram of a smiling Gigi wearing Mickey Mouse ears and a coordinating outfit to match her headband.
"Happy 14th Birthday to my sweet baby girl, Gianna. Mommy loves you more than I can ever show you," wrote the mourning mom.
"You are a part of MY SOUL forever. I miss you so much every day. I wish I could wake up and have you here with me. I miss your smile, your hugs and your giggles.
"I miss EVERYTHING about YOU, Gigi. I LOVE YOU so much!!!!!!"
Kobe and Gigi were memorialized in February during a ceremony at Staples Center, where Kobe suited up in Los Angeles Lakers' signature gold and purple for 20 NBA seasons.
