Ayesha and Stephen Curry have quickly become the NBA’s  hottest and most loved couple today. The couple, who just recently announced that they are expecting baby number three, have come a long way since their days as childhood sweethearts. Their romance and subsequent success as a power couple have quickly made them #relationshipgoals for us, and we’ve got the scoop on how the pair have managed to turn their young love into a happy and prosperous marriage and family.

Early Life

Ayesha Disa Alexander was born on March 23,1989  and raised in Toronto Canada until the age of 14, when she and her family moved to Charlotte, North Carolina.

Wardell Stephen Curry II was born on March 14,1988 in Akron, Ohio and was raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. His father, is former NBA shooting guard, Dell Curry.

The couple met as teens at a youth group at the Central Church of God in Charlotte where both families attended. The pair quickly became fast friends and bonded over both having lived in Toronto and their love for the same Canadian candy. The future lovebirds were also both equally shy.

Curry and Alexander kept in touch, and after high school, Ayesha moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career while Curry also went to Los Angeles for basketball camp. While there Curry sent Alexander a Facebook message finally asking her out on a date. The pair spent their first casually roaming Hollywood together enjoying coffee and taking pictures.

Despite a successful date, it wouldn’t be until Alexander moved back to Charlotte that she and Curry would start officially dating. Curry finished up his degree at Davidson College, while Alexander continued her acting career and the pair carried on their relationship. In 2009 Curry made the big move to the NBA. Curry and Alexander continued to date, and sometime later Curry proposed to his longtime girlfriend.

The day of the proposal Alexander was planning to have a housewarming party at her new apartment in Charlotte. After a game, Curry and Alexander made a stop at Currys parents house to grab a board game. Before they could get inside though, Curry dropped to one knee in the driveway of where the couple shared their first kiss and popped the question.

Meet The Currys

On July 30, 2011, 23-year-old Stephen Curry married his longtime girlfriend and childhood sweetheart 22-year-old Ayesha Alexander. Both Curry and Alexander expressed the importance of having a traditional wedding in the church they grew up in but faced a bit of a dilemma in finding a place to house the 420 guests who planned on attending the couple’s nuptials. With the help of a wedding planner, the couple was able to celebrate with  400 of their closest friends and family.

The couple’s first dance was to “Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. Instead of wedding gifts, the pair requested donations to be made to ThanksUSA, an organization that provides scholarships to families in the military. After the wedding, the couple spent their time honeymooning for ten days in Bora, Bora. When the pair returned they went back to business- Ayesha finished up her degree while Curry went back to ball.
