Steph and Ayesha Curry welcomed their third baby into the world on Monday. The couple announced the news on their social media yesterday.
Ayesha is a celebrity cook, cookbook author and restaurant owner. She married Steph Curry in July 2011. They met when Steph was 15 and Ayesha was 1 4 when they were in the same youth group of the Central Church of God in Charlotte. They reconnected later when Steph came back to LA for the ESPY’s as a sophomore in college. The two are already parents to 6 year old daughter Riley and 3 year old daughter Ryan. The new addition to their family is a baby boy named Canon.
Ayesha wrote, “My heart is FULL. God has been too good to us. Our beautiful baby boy Canon W.Jack Curry 7/2/2018. He joined us earlier than we thought and we couldn’t be more excited and grateful. Family of 5! #mynewman.”
Steph also took to Instagram to announce the new member of his family, writing, “On this journey, on this quest… protect me… I’m bless! Canon W. Jack Curry.”
The couple announced their third pregnancy back in February. Posting a picture of herself sporting a baby belly under a shirt reading ‘Preggers’ on Instagram, Ayesha wrote, “Heyyyy how did this happen?! Curry party of 5. Feeling very blessed… and very sick. Yippie!”
During a joint appearance on The Ellen Show in February, Steph revealed that the couple were choosing not to find out the sex of their baby. Judging by the fact that Ayesha said her pregnancy this time was very different to her last two, Ellen guessed that their baby would be a boy.
Ayesha kept her followers updated on her pregnancy, revealing that she had been consistently sick since getting pregnant. At the start of her third trimester, she posted on Instagram, saying, “6 down 3 to go! Praising God because I can finally eat and cook a little bit again! Pray that it sticks for me y’all! Ive had 5 hospital stays since the new year and have pretty much been sucking at life (at least that’s how it’s felt.) I think I’m starting to turn a corner though!!!! Woot woot.”
She also revealed on her lifestyle blog, Golnspo, that she is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness. She wrote, “For the past four months, I’ve barely been able to eat let alone cook. The mere smell of food averts me. This all has me in a funk that I can’t seem to shake. I don’t want to say I’m depressed because I take mental health very seriously, but I am truly very sad.”
The restaurant owner and chef added, “When you can’t do what you love all of a sudden because of an uncontrollable situation, it sucks. There’s no better way to say it then it just downright sucks and I can’t wait to get my butt back into the kitchen and back with my culinary family.”
