Steph Curry’s eldest daughter Riley Curry is growing up faster than the speed of light. On April 23, the Golden State Warriors star’s 10-year-old daughter was spotted sitting courtside with her mom Ayesha Curry during Game Four of the Western Conference Playoffs.
The youngster donned a long yellow t-shirt, matching slacks, and a pink and tri-colored crochet sweater as she reached over the stand to grab her dad’s hand during his game against the Sacramento Kings. Riley isn’t little anymore. The adorable pre-teen appeared to be just as tall as her mom.
Steph Curry and Riley Go Viral after 2015 NBA Playoffs Interview.
Wow, time really does fly fast. It seems like it was just yesterday when young Riley went viral in 2015 after she joined her dad for a postgame press conference interview during the Golden State Warriors NBA Final tour.
The then toddler kept interrupting Curry as he tried to answer a few questions from reporters.
“That’s too loud Daddy. Be quiet,” the cutie patootie said at one point during the hilarious press conference. Curry tried to maintain a straight face as the youngster fidgeted and waved at the press throughout the entire interview.
In addition to Riley, Curry and his wife Ayesha share daughter Ryan, 7 and son Canon, 4. The proud parents often document their fun life together on social media.
Steph Curry said he regretted bringing Riley to the NBA Finals that year.
During a candid sit down with The Undefeated in 2019, the basketball champion shared that while his interview blunder with Riley was pretty funny, he did have a few regrets about bringing his daughter to the NBA finals in 2015.
“I’ve always wanted to share what I get to do, and all the experiences I have, with my family,” the Ohio native said. “I didn’t know how much that would blow up and how much of a splash she [would make] on the scene. If I could take that one back, I probably would, just because my goal is just to give my kids the best chance at success and at seeing the world in the proper way.

“It’s going to be really interesting to see what path she takes because she can throw down in the kitchen already,” the proud mom said.
“She made us this chicken piccata the other night from scratch,” the cookbook author continued. “I did absolutely nothing. People were hitting me up like, ‘That was fake, right?’ And I’m like, ‘Absolutely not, no.’ She did it from start to finish and it was absolutely delicious. I was so proud I could cry.”

Giving back to the community is important for the Curry family. In 2021, Steph, Ayesha and Riley were present for the unveiling of the new playground, multi-sport court and garden at Franklin Elementary School in Oakland.
The initiative was spearheaded by the duo’s Eat, Play, Learn Program to help increase playspaces for young children living in impoverished neighborhoods.
“There is a powerful, positive connection with a child’s success and the recommended daily amount of physical activity,” Steph and Ayesha shared in a statement. “This is what we have made Play one of the core pillars for our foundation. For children living in poverty, play is often too hard to come by as their families face many obstacles, ranging from a lack of safe places to play to under-resourced schools that cut recess and physical education. This is why we are so very excited to celebrate the dream playspace that will be coming to Franklin Elementary next year and we can get back to playing once again!”
That same year, Riley helped her parents to renew their vows in honor of their 10th wedding anniversary.
On Instagram, Ayesha shared that the entire event was a surprise from Stephen, who picked out her dress and assigned their kids’ special roles. “Our big girl Riley officiated and Ryan and Canon walked me through the grass of our backyard,” Ayesha wrote of the happy day.
