Reported first by Us Weekly, the outlet claims Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry are standing up for each other, despite social media pressure following the latter’s comments on what it’s like to be married to an NBA star while simultaneously aging.
Ayesha recently came out for an interview on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk and stated that she felt insecure about the amount of attention her man receives from women, coupled with the fact she hardly gets noticed anymore. In defense of his lady, Stephen had a message for Ayesha later on.
The 31-year-old took to his social media earlier and said, “proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there.” The basketball player said on his Instagram account that he was proud of the way Ayesha has handled the vitriol.
On the 6th of May, Monday, Ayesha took some heat online for saying she felt bad about the fact she no longer gets attention from men, whereas Stephen gets more than he needs.
Speaking with Jada Pinkett-Smith, Ayesha was more than honest about her romance with the basketball player for the Golden State Warriors. Ayesha said she feels bad about never receiving any attention ever since she had her three children with Stephen.

This is me throwing a pair of spanx in a Marie Kondo-Esque bin. “Does it spark joy?” I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity. I am human. It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out. Seeing as how it’s mental health awareness month I really want to take the time to encourage everyone to speak their truth regardless of perception, fitting into a mold or offending someone, because it’s YOUR truth. And that’s okay! If what I’m not afraid to say out loud about being a 30yr mama of 3 helps another woman like me feel like they’re not the alone and not the only one with an insecurity (because we ALL have them, don’t play) then that makes all of this hoopla worth it. If you get a chance to watch the actual RTT and not the headlines and rumors please do! There is so much more depth to the talk and our family is grateful to @jadapinkettsmith for giving us the opportunity to bond together. As women let’s continue to uplift, empower and not suppress and compress our feelings and thoughts, as fleeting as some of them may be 😏. Love to you all! Go FIND YOUR JOY and SPEAK YOUR TRUTH unapologetically. 🙏🏽(that’s all-Miranda voice)
Ayesha said it would be nice to know that “at least someone’s looking.” For whatever reason, Curry began receiving an onslaught of social media comments suggesting she is ungrateful and jealous of her husband’s success.
In response, Ayesha took to her Instagram to say she isn’t afraid to speak about her life and that it brings her a lot of joy to be vulnerable sometimes and get to know herself as a person. As you may know, Stephen and Ayesha started dating when they were teenagers. They got married in 2011.
They have three kids together, Canon, Ryan, and Riley, who are 10 months old, 3-years-old, and 6-years-old, respectively.
