Ayesha Curry says putting her husband first, and the kids second, is the secret to her happy marriage. In an interview with Hello Giggles, the busy mom of three kids – Riley, Ryan, and Canon – and wife of Golden State Warriors basketball player Steph Curry revealed that having a strong foundation is the key.
“Putting ourselves first, and making sure that we make time for date nights and for each other,” Ayesha shared with Hello Giggles. “That’s been very important, as hard as it is,” Mrs. Curry explained. “Because when you become a parent, you want to put your kids first, and we do, but we do it second to our relationship. Because ultimately, when our relationship is good, the kids are happy and they’re thriving and our family life is good. We have to put that into perspective and realize that it’s not us being selfish, it’s making sure we set a strong foundation.”
A strong foundation means mutual support and having a model for a healthy marriage to follow. “Both of our parents are still married and have been married for 30-plus years,” Ayesha shared. “The one thing that they both shared with us—some through learning it the hard way, some through just making sure that they do it—is just making sure that we put each other first, even before the kids, as tough as that sounds.”
Mrs. Curry went on to talk about the importance of communication in a relationship. “Even when we don’t want to talk about something, we talk about it,” the celebrity mom said. “Especially from my perspective, I’m a lay it all out on the table kind of girl, so whether it’s a tough conversation or an easy conversation, I never have a tight lip. I tell it like it is and I tell it straight, and ultimately I think it keeps things a lot better for us.”
