Stephen Curry is perhaps the biggest draw in basketball at the moment. As one of the greats of the game, it isn’t new to see the Baby Face Assassin dazzle fans. However, outside the hardwood, Steph has other duties. Apart from being a supportive husband to Ayesha, he is a father to three children. And today marks his firstborn, Riley’s 10th birthday. Likewise, Stephen Curry took to Instagram to pin down a few words for his “twin”.
Back in 2012, Curry had one of his toughest times in the NBA. The three-point king dealt with an ankle injury which kept him out for the entire season. Playing just 26 games that year, Curry was preparing for a long off-season to rehab. However, in the middle of all the struggle, he got the best news possible. On July 19, 2012, Stephen and Ayesha welcomed their firstborn, Riley Curry into the world. And over the years, the 10-year-old has grown to look just like her father.
Now with Riley celebrating her 10th birthday, Steph couldn’t quite believe how fast she grew up.
Stephen Curry wishes his twin a happy birthday
Stephen Curry is having one of the best times of his entire life. Only a month ago, the two-time NBA MVP won his fourth championship. Moreover, he finally captured a Finals MVP for himself. And now he is coming off a fun evening celebrating his daughter’s 10th birthday. However, like any parent, Steph couldn’t catch the time Riley grew up. With his daughter hitting the double-digit mark, the Chef wants her to stop getting big.
The four-time NBA champion took to his Instagram to share an adorable picture of Riley holding up 10. In addition, he also added his own touch of glitter to make the day even better. Steph wrote: “July 19, 2012. 10 years watching you blossom has been the best of the best! Now- stop growing up so fast please…..We love you.”
Out of all his children, Riley is probably the most popular. Firstly, she looks like a mirror image of Curry himself. However, it was her antics during press conferences that made her famous. At just the age of two, she took over Steph’s post-game interview after the Golden State Warriors Game 1 win against the Houston Rockets.
Since then, Riley has been everywhere with Steph. From celebrating championships to watching Curry light it up on the court, she has seen it all. And Stephen Curry isn’t done with history just yet.
