Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors superstar, met Ayesha Curry, a cookbook author and cooking television personality when they were teenagers. Even though they met so young, they went on their first date when he was 19 and she was 18.
On “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, she shared some inside stories about their love story. The popularity of this sports couple is well known among NBA fans, and how much they love them.
During her discussion of what actually happened on that date, Ayesha said: “I picked him up in my ’98 Astro van,” she continued by saying Stephen had on a 3XL pair of shorts. A conversation followed about Stephen’s love of shorts.
As they continued their date, she explained that they went to Madame Tussaud’s, the famous wax museum. Among other things, she mentioned they also drank chai tea lattes. The couple has been through a lot together and is still holding on to each other. It is either Ayesha at Stephen’s game cheering from the sidelines or Stephen coming on to Ayesha’s cooking shows.
Stephen Curry finally told Ayesha Curry how he feels
PEOPLE magazine published a story back in 2017 about the first time the couple said “I love you” to each other. During the interview, she explained everything that happened, including how Stephen did not reply back the first time by saying those three words.
“I told him I loved him first and he said, ‘I feel like I love you too, but I don’t want to say it unless I’m sure because I just want to be sure that when I say it, I really mean it,’” she explained. “I had to get in my car and drive home. I was crying.”
Stephen finally expressed his feelings to Ayesha when they were celebrating Christmas with their families. “We were watching a movie and he turned to my ear and he said, ‘I love you.’” Ayesha remembers.
The couple supported each other through thick and thin when they were dating and after they got married. Their marriage dates back to 2011. They now have three children together: son Canon W. Jack, and daughters Ryan and Riley.
