Stephen Curry’s oldest daughter, Riley, has QUITE the personality, which the world got to witness when she really hammed it up during the most adorable post-game press conference on record. Now, little Riley is as precious as ever, her parents even revealing that SHE’S the most famous member of their fam!
It’s official, the Currys are one of the most ADORABLE celeb families we’ve ever seen! And while superstar NBA player, Stephen Curry, 28, is an incredible athlete AND a super sweet dad, it’s his beyond-precious daughter, Riley, 3, who seems to have stolen the spotlight. The cutie has become a star in her own right and Steph couldn’t help revealing in a new interview that his little girl has a “great sense of humor.” Aw!
When Riley completely stole the show at a post-game press conference back in May 2015, Stephen immediately became not only well-known for his killer basketball skills, but also for his family life! And we have to say, we’re not at all surprised. The talented athlete DOES have a super cute fam, which consists of his wife Ayesha, 27, Riley, and second daughter, baby Ryan, 10 months.
But while Steph owns every court he steps on, it’s Riley who has captured the public’s hearts — and it all started at that press conference. In an interview alongside Ayesha in the June issue of Parents magazine, Steph revealed just how that adorable moment went down. “Riley wanted to hang out with me. She had that look, like she wasn’t going to take no for an answer,” he said. “So I said, all right, come with me. She sat up there, and that’s when her personality shined bright. … She’s got a great sense of humor.”

Since, Riley has admittedly become “the star” of the family. “If we go somewhere without her, the first question people ask us is, ‘Where’s Riley?'” Stephen revealed. SO cute! But at the same time, Riley has no idea that she’s even famous. But what she DOES notice are all the flashing cameras in her face. “That breaks my heart a little as a parent,” Ayesha said. “She’ll put her hand up and be like, ‘Mom, she’s trying to take a picture of me.’ Then I give a look that says, ‘Put your phone down.'” Way to go, mama bear!
Ayesha, who has an upcoming cooking show on the Food Network and is releasing a cookbook this fall, also dished about how crazy it can get at times raising two young daughters. “It’s an event to get all four of us out of the house at once. When we get in the car and we’ve brought everything and everybody has socks on, it’s like a dream come true.” But boy is she lucky to have Steph help out! After all, he seems like a dream dad.
“The thing I love about him is that he’s not too cool for school,” Ayesha divulged. “He’ll get down on the floor and play with the girls. He’ll put on dress-up clothes if he has to, and he’s very patient, which is something I’m not. We balance each other out.” Aw!
How sweet is the Curry family, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that Riley is such a character?
