Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has a lot to celebrate. Not only did the point guard help his team win an NBA championship (the first since 1975) with record-setting three pointers, but he recently welcomed a second child.
A big congratulations are in order for Stephen Curry. The NBA “golden boy” and his wife, Ayesha Curry, welcomed their second child, a baby girl named Ryan. “The gift of life is truly an indescribable thing,” writes Ayesha on her blog Little Lights of Mine. “Our beautiful little Ryan Carson Curry arrived perfectly healthy and happy!”
Ayesha delivered the couple’s 6-pound, 1-ounce daughter naturally on July 10. “She arrived a little early through a quick three-hour labor and was a small,” explains Ayesha. “I was able to birth her naturally without an epidural. This is something I’ve always wanted to do and was so happy to get through it with the help of my darling husband and amazing doctor.”
“My wife is a champ!” wrote the proud papa on Twitter.
My wife is a champ!

This is the second daughter for Stephen and Ayesha. You might remember their 2-year-old, Riley Curry, who made headlines at her dad’s post-game press conference during the Western Conference Finals (defeated the Houston Rockets to advance to the NBA Finals).
“Be quiet, Daddy,” said the toddler-turned internet sensation.
With a new child at home, some have wondered about the tot’s reaction now that she’s an older sister and no longer the baby of the family. “Riley is completely enamored with her little sister and has taken on her role as big sister beautifully,” boasts Ayesha. “I am already so proud of her!”
One can only imagine Ryan will be just as cute as her older sister Riley… and that Stephen and Ayesha might have a wee bit of trouble keeping their names straight. They do sound similar but are so cute together nonetheless.
