Ayesha Curry (Steph’s Wife) Explains Role as ‘Mom Boss’ in Her Household

Ayesha Curry

Ayesha Curry sat down with Parents magazine for an in-depth discussion about her roles as mom to her three children, a busy entrepreneur, and wife to a NBA superstar.

In addition to juggling her roles as mom, wife, homemaker and TV chef, Ayesha is host and executive producer of the upcoming TV series Family Food Fight, on ABC.

The 29-year-old culinary chef, who is married to Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, is also a restaurateur, a wine entrepreneur, and an ambassador to CoverGirl cosmetics. There aren’t enough hours in the day for the hands-on mom who manages to find time for her three kids, daughters Riley, 6, Ryan, 3, and son Canon, 5 months.

The busy mom-on-the-go says she is “mom boss” to her kids and it’s important that she teaches them to mind their manners.

“Table manners are important to us, but we’re also realistic. My kids are young, so they’re wiggly worms. I just want them to learn the basics, like, if you burp, say ‘Excuse me!’ Use your napkin to wipe your hands and your face; don’t use your shirt. Simple things like that.”

Ayesha says she has rules at home but they’re not written in stone. She advises other moms not to be afraid to break the rules.

“In our house, you’re definitely not getting dessert if you don’t eat your dinner! But we do throw the rules out the window once in a while. We love to have movie night with the kids where we eat popcorn, ice cream, and then breakfast for dinner.”

She also cautioned parents to cut down on smartphone use. One of her biggest rules is no phones at the dinner table during family time.

“The toughest one for us to follow is no phones at the table. Of course, there are those moments when the kids do something supercute and you just have to record it. But we really try to implement the no-phones rule. Our kids love being at the table together, talking about their day, singing songs, and telling jokes. It’s a special time.”

Ayesha shared her favorite comfort food cravings.

“My family is Jamaican, so my comfort foods are oxtails, rice and peas, and sweet plantains. When I need extra nourishment, I put together macro bowls with microgreens, whole grains, kale, a bunch of other veggies, and a good sauce. I’m a big smoothie girl too. I love tropical flavors. My favorite combo is mango, spinach, and pineapple.”

  • Darkandlovely617?

    It’s the yellow one

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Plaintains have to ripen from being green(good for tostones) to being yellowish black (just like an overly ripe regular banana). Then slice and sauté in butter and oil mixture until they release their sugars. DELICIOUS ?

  • rayne215

    hate celebs that think they are doing something special when parenting. we all juggling kids and work.

  • Tammie Reed

    Lovely family!

  • dontgetblocked

    She tries too hard. She has nannies and lots of help. I wish she would just go sit down somewhere.

  • Janeisha Hunter

    That’s a lot of light skin. Lol beautiful family.

  • the guest

    I LOVE THE CURRY FAMILY!

    Look how tall little Riley has grown, a proud big sister, beautiful children.

  • the guest

    This is true. And without the celebrity, we are raising children with as much style, grace, and quality as celebrity parents.

  • McKay

    Exactly. Boss mom?!? Even when you have a entire team of people around you helping her.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Riley is almost tall as me. She’s got some big feet.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I like these people. Moral, educated, well informed. They don’t make that no mo’.

    Beautiful couple and children.

  • Rayne

    She’s alright but she looks like. 50 year old Asian lady.

  • Sushi

    Thought it was just me….

  • WhoKnew

    Whenever I see her all I can think of is how many side pieces does he really have. Nuccas that make the most babies are the ones who cheat the most. He has a perfect out. Keep the wife pregnant with kids. Keep her home with the kids while he travels and have his city-to-city side pieces show up. I’ve said it before. I don’t understand the need or want to cheat. New D & P eventually becomes old D & P. Then what? You’re on to the next one? Why get married? Why commit yourself to a monogamous relationship at all?

  • Soon2BWife

    Some people are likable others are not. No matter how you try to force feed yourself onto others and try to be likeable and relatable it won’t work.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Love HER! They seem to have a beautiful family! I respect that she’s not being a typical baller’s wife and mother! Won’t have to depend on child support, if things go south!

    She’s doing what all working moms do without the resources and perks, like this interview in a parenting magazine. But, people like to read about celebrities!

    Ayesha is seizing the moment, carving out her own

  • Nina Ross

    Beautiful Family;)

  • more

    What made you say that?

  • more

    You fail to realize that she wants to be pregnant. You talking as if she is a teenager who woke up pregnant.

  • Eileen

    You are so freaking negative…

  • Eileen

    Hater. ..

  • Eileen

    Don’t hate

  • Peppermint Patty

    You hittin on something with this right here…I can remember the days when shaunie was all googly eyed over her man( WITH ALLLL DEM KIDS) …see what happened with that

  • Peppermint Patty

    You again….NO, YOU DON’T HATE-everyone doesn’t have to drink this watered down koolaid they r selling…..gone back over to breitbart and bbc you’d feel more at home

  • Peppermint Patty

    Welllll, first part-true….second-do we kno who he entertains from time to time

  • The Chosen 1.

    Amen to that.

  • The Chosen 1.

    You read my mind.

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    If you love this black family why don’t you think other people love them as well? Why are you waiting on negative comments ?!?!

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Hating lol

  • justlooking

    I agree! But see where she going. Folks managing 200 employees, millions of dollars budget, trying to give hubby a piece, keeping kids in check, trying to have some religion, work out eat right..
    Garden, keep house clean, have perfect skin….chile and we ain’t even famous

  • Desi

    Mom Boss?!?!? Shyitt, I’m a DAMN mom boss. I ain’t got live in nannies. GTFOH!!

  • yvette46

    You have to ask?? So what u just stopped on my comment and didn’t read any further.. There are some negative backlash speak on how the kids are dressed. Some person said she look like a 50 yr old Asian lady etc.. So that’s not negative comments instead of just saying this is a beautiful family.. That’s what my comment was about. Because a lot of black folks throw so much hate towards each other but will lift other races up..Get it now!!

  • T Willis

    She don’t like them lol

  • T Willis

    If he was it would have came out by now. Steph seems to really love and respect what they have. Plus they’re hardcore fanatical Christians. Steph ain’t some tatted up whore hanging around different groupies (Shaq), nor did he come into their union with illegitimate kids. Maybe dude is just a different rare breed that’s faithful ?????

  • Dee

    A hateful hater?

  • T Willis

    Ayesha is so unattractive to me lol smh. And I’m sorry, but, two light skin black folk should be very careful when breeding together – especially these two – because they do not make good looking kids at all.

    On a positive note, I like the image that Ayesha and steph project. I don’t believe it entirely, but, it’s convincingly positive ?????

  • http://www.instagram.com/yeuphonic @yeuphonic

    True but Tristan and Lamar are the thots tho.

  • free

    love the video. that’s all i got.

  • Kimberly King

    Steph is so fine in person. I saw him after a Rockets game. TV makes him look small and scrawny, but he’s taller and muscular in person. Ayesha has a moon pie face and she looks way older than 29. However, I do like them together. She goes hard for her man and she’s not the typical baller wife, so I can dig it. lol

  • Kimberly King

    Steph is a Pisces and them niggas are the Kings of cheating. Very good at hiding it too. But maybe he’s different and just plays ball, chill with his teammates and go home to his family.

  • Kimberly King

    Christians are some of the nastiest, freakiest people on planet earth. And this is coming from someone who believes in Yahshua. So someone believing in Christ doesn’t mean they won’t do something trifling.

  • Kimberly King

    lmao I never thought about it until I scrolled back up and looked. She does. I’m not sure why someone has to be a “hater” for stating their opinion. Black people use the words “hating” and “hater” too loosely these days. I said she has a moon pie face. But I don’t hate her/not hating on her situation. Now, if someone says something like “Damn how she pull Steph?” Then THAT’s hating.

  • Kimberly King

    JUST like him! Good lord. The boy is gonna look like him too. I can tell. Looks like the middle child will look like her mom. They are some cute kids.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I was thinking the same thing. So much negativity for no reason. smh.

  • Phillybruh

    Her pots and pans are expensive, but they come in pretty cool colors.

  • Trace da Ace

    Such a beautiful family!!!

  • Gina7169

    Love it! Love them

  • oshh16

    Beautiful family… I love them together.

  • Bossy704

    Ayesha is lovely. I met her at her book signing a few years back. William & Sonoma still send me emails but all I could afford was a spatula.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Am I the only who thinks they look like brother and sister?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    ikr lol

  • Look@m3

    Lord these comments got me strolling up and down and up and down!!!

  • yvette46

    Have you read the comments yet??

  • Look@m3

    I don’t think they heard you…..a little faint! Say it a little bit louder

  • Tony

    Stfu. You sound like you’re on the HATER committee, looking to start some drama where there is none. Have a ?

  • T Willis

    No, I mean fanatical Christians lol not fair weather ones. Like, saving their virginities until after marriage type of sh*t. Read their interviews on when they met, how their faith protected their union blah blah blah. I mean, they could both be freaky (I doubt it though – Ayesha’s interviews about their sex life comes off prudish – something about he doesn’t really see her naked ?????) but keep it monogamous. Whereas being Freaky/kinky and monogamous isn’t mutually exclusive.

  • datATLboi

    FIRE her stylist and shoot them while we’re at it LOL. She’s sexy and her family is beautiful but she rifled around in somebody’s 99 cent bend for that look

  • Logan Roberts

    Meh.

  • SpiceGirl

    Nice looking family….Now I for one…don’t condone coming for the kids…but I have to say this….I’m all for team natural….but they HAVE to know…kids can be cruel…meaning…when that child is in school with her hair ALL over head….you know SOMEBODY is going to say SOMETHING…..js Nothing wrong with ponytailspigtails.

  • Logan Roberts

    Oh he’s cheating alright on the strengh he is a Pisces man. Steph just smooth with it.

  • Rayscoty

    Why is her hair /wig blowing and not the children…

  • garrisonville

    beautiful family

  • onelove

    i do that everyday……that what a mom suppose to do….

  • onelove

    that baby eyes is piercing my soul…….

  • free

    nice to hear he is taller and muscular cause he looks like somebody lil teenage boy cousin on the court.

  • free

    yall got the man down bad cause of his sign lololol

  • Evillene

    They seem like a lovely family. I don’t understand why every somewhat famous spouse of a superstar feels the need to ‘brand’ themselves and try to turn a pedestrian act of everyday life into a commercial enterprise. Who needs her tips on child-rearing or teaching table manners? Or juggling work and domestic life? Does she have nannies, because most don’t?

    He makes a ton of money so she can just sit down until she does something truly extraordinary like find a cure for cancer — or make low-sodium, vegan BBQ ribs taste as good as pork.

  • Evillene

    tell it.

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Yes I have but, why focus on the hate just worry about the positive. In life people always going to have something negative to say about ANY and EVERYTHING!! We all know that im just saying why emphasize what people are going to do regardless.

  • Evillene

    Not from me. I am suspicious of the whole celebrity-as-role model apparatus. I mean, we loved Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable (and the actor/’role model’ who played him) like he was our own daddy until…

  • Eileen

    Excuse me this is a free country. Why do you remember we are not acquainted…

  • Desi

    Loud, but true.

  • Sassie

    She has a really big round ass head…..that’s all I got, LOL

  • Sassie

    Good point!

  • Sassie

    I’m all for team natural too. Hope to go natural myself one day…but yeah…just having the kid’s hair all over their head with no particular style is just lazy. Make it at least LOOK NICE, I mean GEESH.

  • more

    Lmao i really want to know

  • SpiceGirl

    My whole point

  • DeJeri

    TRUE

  • Rayne

    Lmao

    If you don’t agree with the e-world you’re a hater…I guess chile ?

  • Logan Roberts

    Yep. Pisces is one the whorish sign in the zodiac. It’s been proven over & over.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I pray that they last a life time.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Maybe she was approached?
    Maybe she wants to make her own money & not be branded as a gold digger?
    Maybe she wants a career where she can work & still care for her family?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    FOOD FOR THOUGH BEFORE CRITICIZING (JEALOUSY):

    Maybe she was approached?
    Maybe she wants to make her own money & not be branded as a gold digger?
    Maybe she wants a career where she can work & still care for her family?

    DAMNED IF SHE DOES. DAMNED IF SHE DOESN’T.

  • yvette46

    Go ride your boyfriend you sound like a bitch!!

  • shauna

    Because most people find their partner incredibly sexy and desirable when they have their own passions and interests. There isn’t a thing sexy about someone who doesn’t have their own thing going on. I know I would want to come home to someone who has something to talk about because their entire day wasn’t dedicated to me!

  • T Willis

    That’s not true. Of all the millionaires and billionaires, most of the women spouses are trophies – they are not business partners or ceos – that’s a fallacy fed to black women. Hell I almost yt woman I know (when presented with a choice) become stay at home moms. Don’t believe the hype, there’s nothing “sexy” about a partner who has a career.

  • shauna

    Well a trophy is something you collect, not something you necessarily love or want to be a partner. I hardly think it’s a fallacy being fed to Black women, but having a career isn’t necessarily the same thing as having a passion.

    A lot of yt women do opt to be stay at home moms and their husbands end up running around with a woman with a job, not another stay at home mom.

  • McKay

    Fools always be thinking everyone is hater….Fools, I tell yah!!

  • MsAmour22

    The hair is in the natural high vibrational kinky state. We’ve been indoctrinated by melanin recessive European standards to “tame it” why….kinky hair in it’s natural state has power, why do you think we had such a high vibration and unity in the 70’s because we were rocking our natural hair. If a child is taught high self esteem at a young age nothing any other child could say would phase them.

  • Mrs. S. O.

    Moon face…..???

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Chile no nannies, no rich husband that can afford you to invest in your own ventures, no opportunities thrown at you because of your associations… Like kill the noise, this “every woman can do it all” persona she is pitching fell on deaf ears over here.

  • SpiceGirl

    I get that…but again…kids can be cruel was ALL I was saying.

  • parisjok

    me either

  • parisjok

    u know we going to hell for even thinking these things but……………

  • parisjok

    do not know why but have never liked them together at all. she keeps having all those funny looking big head babies for what? all of that work career stuff she got her hands into no way is she all that great of a mom or wife.

    not buying it at all. she got two in school and one brand new baby AND a huge career and I am suppose to think she is the only human mom on earth who has 48 hours per day instead of the 24 hours that all the rest of us have to give the love, attention, devotion, etc. that babies need. no way

  • parisjok
