Steph Curry & Daughter Riley Curry
I love how fun and mischievous Riley is and how she's not even the least bit shy in front of the cameras. I also adore how Steph includes Riley in all aspects of his life and even takes her to his NBA interviews. He's very patient with her enthusiastic energy and you can tell how much he loves his daughter by the way they interact.
"Let's talk about Riley. She became a celebrity last spring when she tagged along to a press conference and stole the show—waving at reporters, telling you to be quiet, disappearing under the dais. Did that happen organically, and were you surprised by the reaction?
Steph Curry: Yes and yes. I have to walk past the family waiting room to get to the interview room, and Riley wanted to hang out with me. She had that look, like she wasn't going to take no for an answer. So I said, all right, come with me. She sat up there, and that's when her personality shined bright. I tried my best to answer the questions even while feeling under the table and checking out of the corner of my eye—where is Riley? She's got a great sense of humor. Now she's the star of the family. If we go somewhere without her, the first question people ask us is, "Where's Riley?"
What are you most looking forward to with the girls?
Steph Curry: I think about the milestones from my childhood and what it will be like to watch our kids go through them. Taking Riley to her first day of school was a whirlwind. I can't imagine what middle school is going to be like, and high school, and graduation. All those little checkpoints are going to be fun, and there will be ups and downs along the way. Watching our children go through those life experiences will be amazing. "
