Stephen Curry’s Love Life Exploring His Relationships, Wife, and Beautiful Family

From Teenagers at Church to Hollywood Power Couple: A Timeline of Stephen and Ayesha Curry’s Relationship



Though they quickly became one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples, Stephen and Ayesha Curry’s love story had a humble beginning.

The NBA star was 15 years old when he and the Seasoned Life author, then 14, met at church in North Carolina. Though they’ve both since admitted they were fond of each other at a young age, it wasn’t until years later that they would reconnect as adults and give romance a shot.

“I always had my eye on her, but I got a little shaken, for sure,” Stephen previously told Parents Magazine of their teenage years.

Fast-forward a few years, and the Golden State Warriors point guard finally got the chance to pursue the then-aspiring actress while on a trip to Los Angeles, where she was living. During his East Coast visit for the ESPY Awards, Stephen and Ayesha spent the day together as just friends, and they later turned romantic.

The couple tied the knot in July 2011, and despite being in their early 20s, they knew it was meant to be.

“I was 23; she was 22. But I knew I had found the right woman and I wanted to start a life with her,” the athlete told Parents.

Following their nuptials, Ayesha put her acting career on hold after finding out she was pregnant with their daughter Riley.

“She was a borderline honeymoon baby,” Ayesha explained of how quick things changed for their family. “So that became my next move. I struggled with that for a while.”

While Stephen’s NBA career began to take off, Ayesha found her calling in the culinary world, opening restaurants around the United States, writing cookbooks and even hosting game shows, including Family Food Fight. Whether it be regular season games or championships, Ayesha is often in the crowd cheering her hubby on, while he does the same for her in her endeavors.

The couple later welcomed daughter Ryan and son Canon.

Ayesha gushed about her husband’s parenting skills in a 2016 interview with Parents Magazine. “The thing I love about him is that he’s not too cool for school,” she shared at the time. “He’ll get down on the floor and play with the girls. He’ll put on dress-up clothes if he has to, and he’s very patient, which is something I’m not. We balance each other out.”

Although Ayesha noted that “it’s a dream come true” if all five of them get out of the house on time every day, Stephen said he knows all of the difficult parts of raising three kids will pay off later. “All those little checkpoints are going to be fun, and there will be ups and downs along the way,” he shared. “Watching our children go through those life experiences will be amazing.”

“I wasn’t allowed to date in high school,” Ayesha told Parents Magazine. “We always laugh that we were both focused on God.”



The couple opened up about how Ayesha dodged Stephen’s attempt at a first kiss. “He was in mid-conversation and came flying at my face like a thief in the night,” the doting wife told Parents magazine when reflecting on the first time they hung out as adults. “So I was like, ‘No.’ Then I thought, ‘Oh, I didn’t know this is what was happening.’”

Ayesha opened up about her health journey on the Rachael Ray Show, stating that she felt as though she had to live up to the athlete’s wellness standards in order to feel healthy. “One of the biggest things, for me, that was a hindrance, in a sense, was I was competing in my own weird, twisted way, in my head, with my very athletic husband and thinking I need to do all of the things that he was doing in order to find my balance and to stay fit,” she admitted to host Rachael Ray. “And it took me so long to realize, ‘No, my fitness journey and my plan are gonna look how that looks for me.’”

She continued: “It’s living that 80/20 life and making sure that I’m enjoying life’s celebratory moments, and then, in between, making healthier choices. For me, it couldn’t be so rigid, and I found the best results when I kind of loosened up a little bit.”
