Stephen Curry is one of the greatest players of all time. The 4-time NBA champion has been an excellent role model for kids all around the world. One of the most important reasons for his success is his wife, Ayesha. They have been together for a longer time than Steph has been in the NBA.
The couple has 2 daughters and a son together. Steph mentioned in an interview with Graham Bensinger that he delivered his first daughter, Riley, and how she completely changed her parents’ lifestyle.
Steph met Ayesha when they both were in high school. They tied the knot in 2011 when Steph was 23 years old. “Why waste time when you found the right one, right?” Steph said it was fate that brought them together many times and he wanted to start a family with her without wasting time.
Their first daughter, Riley, was born in 2012. Steph actually delivered his daughter that day. He said, “That was an experience. I didn’t know going into the delivery process that I was going to be that hands on.” Everything happened so quickly that he even forgot to put his scrubs on. He was taking care of his wife Ayesha and, “Riley was hustlin to come out”.
The doctor offered a baffled Steph the chance to deliver his own baby. “I don’t know what I’m doing,” Steph said, even though it was a little difficult, it was a great experience.
Stephen Curry has a beautiful family to thank for
Steph’s career took off after the birth of Riley. He was named back-to-back MVP and recently won his first Finals MVP to cement his legacy as an all-time great. He believes his life completely changed after having kids.
“Just puts everything in perspective and I don’t ever have a bad day knowing you’re gonna go home, have a wife and daughter to enjoy life with,” Steph said happily.
While he used to be frustrated after losing games earlier, now it has changed. He said, “There’s nothing more gratifying than coming home and spending time with your daughter and your wife”. Curry has been so caught up with his family ever since the birth of Riley that he doesn’t remember what he used to do with his free time.
It is truly a blessing to have a loving family as Stephen does. Steph and Ayesha are prime examples of how a happy personal life can lead to a successful career. What are your thoughts on the Curry family? Let us know in the comments.
