Fame is a word that NBA wife Ayesha Curry is still processing. The celebrity mom tells Cosmopolitan that she is still in awe of the stardom that has recently come her family’s way.
“We’re still trying to process everything,” she shares. “It’s been a whirlwind the past couple of years, and I don’t think anything has quite set in yet, if that makes any sense.”
Although the star mom knew that her husband, Stephen Curry, was pretty famous, it wasn’t until the couple’s daughter, Riley, let her personality shine through at a press conference that Ayesha realized the whole Curry family was influential. “Kids do that stuff all the time and nobody takes notice. It kind of caught us off guard, and so that changed everything for all of us.”
Now, as parents of a budding star, Ayesha and Stephen are mindful of the amount of exposure their oldest daughter receives. “We’re kind of at the point where we’re regulating what’s happening and how much exposure she has, because we just want her to be a kid, and this was never in the plan,” Mrs. Curry says.
It seems that being in the spotlight is a balancing act in more ways than one. “A night in is basically trying to wrangle and calm down the children,” Ayesha says of her and Stephen’s time together at home. “Somewhere in between there make dinner, have a glass of wine, and attempt to watch a movie — and that never happens.”
Ayesha and Stephen have two kids, Riley and Ryan, together. Riley will turn 4-years-old on July 19, 2016, while Ryan will ring in her first birthday on July 10th.
