Golden State basketball star Stephen Curry shared an adorable first photo of his newborn baby daughter, Ryan, cuddling with her big sister, Riley. Get all the details on Ayesha Curry’s “quick” labor, and find out how the family is enjoying being a family of four.
Here she is! The newest member of the Curry family — Ryan Carson Curry.
Stephen Curry shared this sweet snapshot as his daughter Riley, who has been in the spotlight recently for her adorable post-game press conferences, snuggled up next to her newborn baby sister.
“I feel Blessed! God is Great,” Curry captioned the photo. “Thanks to the doctors and staff at Alta Bates for taking care of my girls, especially Dr. Poddatori. Healthy baby and @ayeshacurry is all I prayed for. #prouddaddy.”
Ayesha wrote in her own blog post that little Ryan was “perfectly happy and healthy,” and described her all-natural birth.
“She arrived a little early through a quick 3 hour labor and was a small 6lbs 1 oz. I was able to birth her naturally without an epidural,” she wrote. “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, Dr.Poddatoori. This time around I felt more prepared and was able to take in the entire process. It was a miracle!
“Stephen, Riley and I are enjoying this gorgeous gift from God and basking in the present! We are now officially a family of 4!” she continued. “Riley is completely enamored with her little sister and has taken on her role as big sister beautifully. I am already so proud of her!”
The Currys stuck with the “R” theme when naming their second daughter, Ryan. They also jumped on the hottest new baby name trend — boy names for girls. Celebrity parents such as Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have a baby girl named Wyatt, while Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds named their daughter James.
The name Ryan is an Irish name that means “kingly.” The Social Security Administration ranks Ryan as the 37th most popular name for boys (Noah is number one), while baby girls named Ryan ranked at number 510 (Emma is the top name for girls).
