STEPHEN CURRY sealed his fourth NBA crown with a kiss in Boston this week. The 34-year-old guard put in another lights out performance as Golden State Warriors finished off Boston Celtics in game six of the NBA Finals.
Curry’s wife Ayesha was in the crowd at TD Garden on Thursday night as the Warriors sealed their crown. It’s the fourth NBA championship of Curry’s career after wins in 2015, 2017 and 2018. And one constant during his basketball career has been wife Ayesha. Ayesha met Stephen when they attended high school in Charlotte.
Although they knew each other at a young age, a romantic relationship didn’t spark till years later when they were both in California in 2008. The NBA champ was playing basketball at Davidson and in Los Angeles because he was nominated for Breakout Star at the ESPYs.
Ayesha was modeling in the city at the time, not at all looking to date an athlete. After the initial rejection, Steph tried asking her out once more on Facebook, Ayesha told People magazine. The couple got married in 2011 and now live in a stunning $31million house in the wealthiest zip code in the US.
The Curry estate in Atherton, California has a swimming pool with a cabana, a built in fireplace and even a guesthouse. They have two daughters – Riley and Ryan, and one son – Canon together. Ayesha was born in Toronto, Canada, on March 23, 1989. She moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, with her family when she was 14. Ayesha moved to the West coast after high school to pursue acting. One of her first acting gigs was in 2009 on Hannah Montana as one of Jackson Stewart’s love interests.

Ayesha Curry has a passion for cooking and turned it into a career
She has also starred in Ballers, The Bold Type, and A Black Lady Sketch Show. While her passion for acting took her to new heights, her love for cooking was just as strong. After Ayesha got pregnant, her husband Steph was the one who gave her the idea to start her own food blog, she told Parade.
In 2016, she debuted with her first best-selling cookbook, The Seasoned Life: Food, Family, Faith, And The Joy Of Eating Well. Four years later, she published another, The Full Plate: Flavor-Filled, Easy Recipes For Families With No Time And A Lot To Do. The young entrepreneur has hosted two Food Network shows: Ayesha’s Homemade and Ayesha’s Home Kitchen. She has appeared on multiple cooking shows throughout her career. She also has her home at-home meal kit, pots and pans collection, wine company and lifestyle brand.
Ayesha is still furthering her career in the culinary arts, but going in a different direction. One Boston bar put up a sign during the Finals saying ‘Ayesha Curry can’t cook’. But it was Steph who had the last laugh as his Warriors served up a defeat to the Celtics.
