Steph Curry is one of the most notable players in the NBA right now. His shooting accuracy is second to none, and he was the only player in the NBA who unanimously voted as the most valuable player for the Golden State Warriors.
While his career has been very impressive, he is not the only person in his household who has had happiness in their careers. His wife, actress Ayesha Curry, has had some minor roles in some sitcoms before she became a big star on Food Network with her hit show: Ayesha's Home Kitchen.
So how did a Food Network star end up marrying a world famous basketball star? Here's what we know about how Steph and Ayesha Curry met.
When did Ayesha first meet Steph Curry?
Steph and Ayesha actually met as they were just teenagers. They had attended the same church with nothing more in common than the fact that they both had great dreams one day and left their hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina and became famous. They did not judge each other while attending the same church. In fact, even then, Steph Curry was known for his basketball court skills, and at that time Ayesha had said she was not an athlete because most of them had an arrogant personality.
Ayesha had once told People, that while she noticed Steph when they were younger, she never thought she actually had a chance with him. "He was the sweet boy in the church, all the girls were obsessed," Ayesha said. "So I made the generalization that he might not be for me."
Love did not come easy for Steph and Ayesha Curry
A few years later, after both of them had grown up and left home to pursue their careers, Steph and Ayesha were re-engaged while Ayesha lived in Los Angeles. She admitted that the first time he asked her out, she had knocked him down. But she finally decided to go on a date with him and was quickly glad she had made that decision. Steph was not arrogant as she thought he would be, instead she described him as "funny and stupid".
The two of them continued to date for a while, and Ayesha was a little broken when she told Steph she loved him but he didn't say it back. She cried a little, but the couple were able to have it all out. He apparently realized her beloved her because they only married three years later, in 2011.
Does Ayesha and Steph Curry have any children?
Ayesha and Steph have three children. In 2012, they welcomed their first daughter, Riley. They welcomed their youngest daughter Ryan to the world in 2015. And their newest addition, a son named Cannon, was born in 2018.
Many people are familiar with their oldest daughter, Riley. When she was just two years old, she showed the world that she shared her parents, loves to be in front of the camera when she took over two of her father's press conferences after her game. The audience was more interested in watching her run around and like being tired than they were in hearing what her father had to say about the game he just played.
While Ayesha and Steph knew each other since they were children, it took both of them some time before they realized that they actually belonged to each other. We are just happy that the two were able to finally realize it because they have become one of the sweetest celebrity families of our time.
