The Bryants have a daughter, Natalia, who turns 3 in January.
"In addition to their excitement, Kobe and Vanessa have been sharing a lot of laughs because after hitting game-winning shots for the Lakers, Kobe has been making late-night food runs for his wife's pregnancy cravings, only to get home with the food and find out her craving has changed," Pelinka said.
The story was first reported by "Entertainment Tonight."
The 27-year-old Bryant is in his 10th season with the Lakers.
