In the post, Stephen included a picture of Riley wearing a “birthday princess” crown with her arms stretched out in excitement. He reminisced about the past ten years and the joy of watching his daughter blossom into a wonderful young girl. However, he also jokingly pleaded with her to slow down and stop growing up so quickly. Alongside the photo, Stephen added the caption, “July 19, 2012. 10 years watching you blossom has been the best of the best! Now- stop growing up so fast please…..We love you😍. Waaaaayyy up she feels blessed! 🦄🏐”

Ayesha, who is also the author of “The Full Plate” cookbook, even shared a selfie with Riley, captioned “Double digit behavior.” Additionally, she posted a video of herself and her NBA star spouse shooting hoops together.

It’s clear that this family knows how to make birthdays extra special, and their genuine love and affection for each other is evident in these heartwarming gestures.

Steph Curry Commemorates Riley’s 10th Birthday

Back in 2015, when Riley was just 2½ years old, she captured the hearts of fans everywhere when she unexpectedly joined her father during a press conference after the Warriors’ victory over the Houston Rockets in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Riley playfully crawled under the table and onto her dad’s lap, interjecting as he spoke with reporters to tell him, “You’re too loud, Daddy!”

Recently, there has been a festive atmosphere in the Curry household as Riley’s younger sister also celebrated her birthday. Ryan turned 7 on July 11th, and Stephen shared a similar tribute by posting a photo with the birthday girl holding up a peace sign as they sat together in a golf cart.

“Wishing a special happy birthday and Lucky #7 to my Ryan!!!” he captioned the picture. “I love everything about this special girl 😍🦋 Shine bright, my baby.”

Ayesha also marked Ryan’s birthday with a series of photos on her own Instagram page. The adorable carousel showcased Ryan posing in a white outfit and matching beret, later enjoying a tea party at a restaurant.
