Ayesha and Steph Curry may be in the spotlight, but they regret placing their children in it due to the immense negativity it can cause.
The basketball wife spoke with Insider during her cover profile about the regret she feels for placing her oldest daughter, Riley, on social media. The child would constantly go viral for her postgame press conference moments alongside her dad as the team won three titles in four seasons between 2015 and 2018. In recent years, Riley has not been as present in her father’s interviews.
“If we had known back in the day just how chaotic it would make life, I don’t think we would’ve done it. But we were just genuinely living our lives back then. And we thought, ‘This is our kid. We’re bringing our kid along,'” she explained, a decision that she has now grown to regret.
These days, Ayesha shares occasional images of her three children on Instagram. Though, she confirmed neither of them have any social media apps on their phones. Ayesha is also working to find a healthy balance between allowing her kids to experience normal things while shielding them from the dark side of the internet.
The Currys aren’t the only prominent parents keeping their kids away from social media. Actress Kerry Washington and singer Adele are just a handful of celebs who keep their kids away from internet onlookers. Rapper Gucci Mane and wife Keyshia Ka’Oir have frequently faced scrutiny for not posting photos of their elder children, despite the model stating several times that the older kids don’t want to be seen online the same way she showcases her younger children. This is understandable, given the brutal comment sections, which empower trolls to comment vulgarly about famous children.
Ayesha and Steph Curry married in 2011 and share 10-year-old Riley, seven-year-old Ryan, and four-year-old Canon.
