The half-Haitian Sonya is not left behind in the sportiness as she was a pro at both basketball and volleyball. She married Dell in 1988 and they have been together since then. As their children grew, Sonya (nee Adams) and her husband did not want them to feel pressured into sports so they played casually until they were in middle school where they took on sports competitively. Sonya now operates her own Montessori School in Charlotte.
Seth Curry (younger brother from same parents)

While his brother plays for the Golden States Warriors shooting guard, Seth is a point guard for the Dallas Mavericks.

The second Curry brother was a star athlete in University and in 2014 was drafted into the NBA. Since he joined the NBA, Seth has been trying to find his footing. He is no doubt a talented player but the question now is whether or not he can live up to or even surpass his brother’s legacy.

After having two boys, the Curry family was hoping the next child would be a girl and their wishes were granted on October 20, 1994 when the only Curry female was born.

Ayesha Curry (wife)
Duration of Marriage: July 30, 2011 till present
Date of Birth: March 23, 1989
Zodiac Sign: Pisces
One thing that is never brushed aside with Stephen is his faith. He is a Christian and he makes sure the whole world knows this. As a teenager, Curry was in the same church group as Ayesha (nee Alexander) and that was where their chemistry started budding. He always had his eye on her but was a little shaken as Ayesha was not permitted by her parents to date until she finished high school. Time passed but the basketball legend was never able to get Alexander out of his mind.
After high school, she went on to begin a career in acting. She was in Los Angeles as an aspiring actress and Curry came to town for the ESPYS sports awards show. They found themselves on facebook, hung out and things took off from there. Ayesha had no idea Curry was into her until she dodged his first kiss attempt. They eventually had their first kiss in the driveway of Ayesha’s parents’ house – in the rain! Like the Notebook movie.
Curry was 23 and his lover 22 when they got married. They were so young but they knew they were right for each other and went on with it. The young Ayesha had to give up her acting career when she had a borderline honeymoon baby. Growing up, she says she spent most of her time in the kitchen as her parents were of different descents and hence had various cultural dishes.
Ayesha is now an aspiring chef and has a cook book to her name. She is in love with her life by the day and her children are definitely her most treasured gifts right now. She is a TV personality and is as active as her husband on social media. No doubts, she is loved by many and handles her public image with so much grace.
