I love my little family 🥰 forever grateful. Ayesha Curry

Ayesha Disa Curry was born in March 23, 1989, is a Canadian-American actress, entrepreneur, cookbook author, and cooking television personality. After guest roles in several television shows and movies, she began hosting her own show, Ayesha’s Homemade (a.k.a. Ayesha’s Home Kitchen), on Food Network. Despite not having any professional chef training, her culinary career started in 2014, when she prepared her first meal as a YouTube demonstration on her channel Little Lights of Mine. Curry is the author of several videos on her channel Little Lights of Mine and has written one cookbook, The Seasoned Life, published in 2016.

Ayesha is the daughter of John and Carol Alexander (née Chin) and has four siblings: Maria, Janiece, Jaz and Chad. Her mother is of Afro-Jamaican and Chinese-Jamaican descent while her father is of mixed African-American and Polish descent. She was born and raised in Toronto until the age of 14, when she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. She first gained an interest in cooking at a young age. With her mother operating a salon in the basement of their home, Ayesha would watch as her babysitter cooked Trinidadian curry and roti and brought it down to customers.

On July 30, 2011, she married NBA player Stephen Curry. The two met in a church youth group in Charlotte when they were 15 and 14 years old. It wasn’t until years later when Ayesha was pursuing her acting career in Hollywood and Stephen was visiting for an awards show, that the two started dating. Ayesha soon moved back to Charlotte close to where Stephen was playing college basketball at Davidson College. Together, they have three children. As of 2019, they reside in Atherton, California.

Curry is a Christian; of her faith, she said: “It’s the foundation for everything that I do, really. … With my relationship with my husband, it’s what it’s founded on.” She added that “When Steph decided to play basketball, I had the same conversation with him that he had with me. ‘Whatever you do, do it well, but do it for God.’ I think that’s what has kept us grounded. When I started my blog called ‘Little Lights of Mine,’ my whole goal was to do the things I wanted to do, but all while being a light for Him.”
