One year after marrying Ayesha, the couple welcomed daughter Riley in 2012. Basketball fans were introduced to Riley during a 2015 NBA Finals post-game interview when she recited an infamous line from rapper Big Sean's hit "Blessings."

"I'm way up, I feel blessed," the young Curry said. 

Though the moment was adorable, the NBA star admits he regrets exposing Riley at such an early age to the media.

"One thing I do technically regret in terms of how fast this all came is when I brought Riley on the podium," the Davidson alum said to The Undefeated's David Dennis Jr in February 2019.

"I didn’t know how much that would blow up and how much of a splash she [would make] on the scene," he added. "If I could take that one back, I probably would, just because my goal is just to … give my kids the best chance at success and at seeing the world in the proper way … trying to give our kids the best chance to be successful and have a normal life in terms of treating people the right way, having respect, not getting too bigheaded and feeling like everything’s about them."


Ayesha opened up about how she talks to Riley about racial injustice

Like millions of parents nationwide, Ayesha is grappling with the responsibility of explaining the ongoing discrimination against Black Americans. In an interview with with Self magazine published August 13, she opened up about how her parents communicated instances of prejudice with her and how she used that as inspiration to educate Riley.

"I go through so many emotions. Sometimes I want to cry. Some­times, seeing people from all walks of life stand up for justice and fight for what’s right, makes me feel like, 'Wow, people are inherently good, and the universe is giving us an opportunity to weed out the bad,'" the 31-year-old said.

"I think about my par­ents experiencing this, and their parents experiencing this, and I’m like, I don’t want my children to have to experience this. There’s this intense and innate need to make sure we see it through, so this doesn’t continue."


In 2015, the couple welcomed a second child

Daughter Ryan made her debut in 2015, solidifying Steph's status as a two-time #GirlDad. Alongside Riley and Ryan, Steph and Ayesha endorsed presidential nominee Joe Biden at this year's Democratic National Convention.

"Surprised and happy," Riley responded.
