She’s just being a mom! Even though it’s safe to say that the entire world has fallen in love with Ayesha and Stephen Curry’s adorable daughter Riley for her viral videos and cute expressions, Ayesha now fears for how famous she’s become. We have all the details, here.
Ayesha Curry, 27, admitted in a new interview that America’s obsession with her 4-year-old daughter Riley sometimes makes her nervous. “It’s scary because we didn’t expect [Riley’s popularity] to happen, so that’s been a whole learning process in itself,” the wife of NBA superstar Stephen Curry, 28, told New York magazine. “We say no to a lot of requests. Riley goes to school, comes home, we play with her, and keep her out of the spotlight as much as we can. But at the end of the day, she’s our child, and we’re all about family.”
Ayesha slammed Internet trolls back in June 2016, after they created some really nasty memes of her family. In one, someone had swapped out a wedding photo of her and Stephen, and replaced her face with a crying Michael Jordan photo. In another, someone replaced Stephen’s face with LeBron James‘ photo. Ayesha was NOT having any of this and wrote, “I could care less. It’s the inappropriate Photoshopped pictures that are insulting to both me and the other families, husbands, fathers, wives in them.” Preach girl!
We totally understand what Ayesha means about not expecting her little girl’s sudden popularity — though we just can’t get enough of Riley’s bubbly personality and cute antics! As the unofficial “star” of the family, it makes sense that Ayesha wants to keep her daughter safe. And as we’ve seen before, Ayesha is not to be messed with, and we love that about her!
