When you become an overnight celebrity, you need someone to make sure you stay grounded. NBA superstar Stephen Curry, better get his daughter Riley an agent, because she’s blowing up fast! But her mom Ayesha is making sure she remains somewhat a normal kid.
Stephen Curry‘s adorable daughter Riley, 2, has been making headlines during her daddy’s big playoff run this year, but his wife Ayesha is making sure it doesn’t get too out of hand. In an essay for Time.com, the soon-to-be mother-of-two explains that on non-game days, Riley’s schedule is still “regimented.”
In a refreshing essay, Ayesha discusses how she handles parenting the top sports baby in the game, Riley.
“I feel that the biggest thing you can do, as a parent, is to engage. You can never be too busy for your child,” the proud mom explained on Time.com. “There should always be time for a bedtime story, impromptu playtime, or a quick game of hide-and-seek—or “find me,” as Riley calls it. These moments with your child should never get pushed to the bottom of the list. In these moments we set the foundation for the kind of relationship we want to have with our children as they grow.”
Seriously, could Riley be any more adorable?
Mrs. Curry went on to add that, “We also do what we can to make sure that non-game days are still regimented. Bedtime routines stay the same, as do daily activities. Riley loves to horseback ride and swim, so we make sure those events don’t change through all of the excitement.”
What great parenting, it’s so amazing that both Ayesha and Stephen make sure their daughter still enjoys a normal “non-celebrity” life away from the arena.
Ayesha & Riley Are Stephen’s Biggest Fans
Ayesha went on to say that on and off the court, her and Riley are Stephen’s biggest fans.
“Family matters! Our children matter! At the end of the day, when all the lights dim, and the cameras are gone, we are still here as his biggest, loudest, and most supportive cheerleaders. We are also extremely proud that in spite of some criticism, Riley was able to share in that experience with her father and bring joy and laughter into the lives and homes of many all over the world.”
So sweet, we love, love, love this adorable family!
