Ayesha Curry regrets overexposing daughter on social media

Ayesha Curry has shared much with fans over the years, but if she could do things differently in showing off her family life, she would.

In her May 2023 cover story with Insider, the wife of Warriors superstar Steph Curry expressed remorse for overexposing the couple’s eldest child, 10-year-old daughter Riley, on a public platform when she was younger.

“When the social media thing started, nobody knew what that was going to become,” the 34-year-old Ayesha said.

“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.’” 

Riley was often a staple at Curry’s postgame press conferences as the team won three titles in four seasons between 2015-’18.

Though Ayesha sporadically features her family on Instagram, including daughter Ryan, 7, and son Canon, 4, the media personality notes that none of her and Curry’s three children have social media accounts or mobile devices.

That said, Ayesha and Curry, 35, have conversed about striking a balance.

“Where’s the middle ground, where we’re strict, but we’re also allowing our kids to experience life?” Ayesha said “We’re trying to figure out what that balance is. Just kind of learn as you go, right?” 

Ayesha, who has been married to Curry since 2011, has supported the nine-time NBA All-Star throughout his prolific career.

The Warriors claimed their fourth championship title in the last eight seasons in June 2022, when they defeated the Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Golden State failed to replicate last year’s magic and was bounced from the playoffs by the Lakers after six games in the Western Conference semifinals.
