Stephen Curry has established himself as one of the greatest players of all time. His Golden State Warriors won their 4th championship in 8 years, as Curry was named the Finals MVP for the first time in his career. However, his rise to superstardom wouldn’t have been possible without his wife, Ayesha.

Ayesha started her career as an actress. Her romance with Steph started around their early 20s and they got married in 2011. She got pregnant soon after and had to put her acting career on hold. As Steph was on his way to becoming the greatest shooter ever, Ayesha had to take up the responsibility of taking care of their kid.

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

Since then, Ayesha has built a great career for herself in the culinary world. She is a cookbook author and had her own cooking television show. The couple soon welcomed another girl and a boy. The success of Stephen Curry on the court of basketball is in no sense by his own doing.
