Stephen and Ayesha Curry have proven time and time again that they are the ultimate couples goals. The NBA player and his future wife met as teenagers through a church youth group. Eventually, they got married and were catapulted into the spotlight as Curry was drafted to the NBA. In the midst of a growing family, a huge public profile and everything else that comes with raising a family in the public eye, the Curry’s have upheld their vows to the fullest – supporting each others’ passions and holding strong to their faith.
In honor of the couple’s eighth wedding anniversary, here’s a look at their beautiful love story in photo form.
Steph Curry and Ayesha Alexander met in a church youth group in Charlotte when they were 15 and 14 years old, respectively.
Years later, the two reconnected when Ayesha was pursuing her acting career in Hollywood and Stephen was visiting for an awards show. Soon after, they began dating.
With This Ring
Ayesha revealed on Instagram that Steph purchased her wedding ring the day this photo was taken, unbeknownst to her at the time.
Meet The Currys
Steph proposed to Ayesha in his parents driveway (the same spot they shared their first kiss). The couple tied the knot on July 30, 2011, in the same church where they met nine years before.
Party of 3
The couple welcomed their first child, Riley Curry, in July 2012 (who Ayesha is seen pregnant with here.)
The Honeymoon Baby
In an interview with Parents Magazine, Ayesha described Riley as a "borderline honeymoon baby," since she was born before their first anniversary.

Keep It Spicy
During an interview with E! News’ “Daily Pop," Ayesha revealed that she keeps it spicy with her husband while he's on the road for work by sending him racy photos. "(I send) hundreds of them,” she confessed.
In Her Corner
Steph came to Ayesha's defense after her controversial "Red Table Talk" interview where she confessed to feeling insecure at times. “Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there — not being afraid of the potential BS and nonsense that could and did come at you. Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you.”
So Much Love
Mrs. Curry couldn't be prouder of her husband's new Facebook Watch series, "Stephen Vs. The Game" which features Steph's journey to get to the NBA and become one of the best players the game has ever seen. "Your desire to keep moving the needle and tireless work ethic is inspiring(and sexy)," she says on Instagram. "Can’t wait for you all to see just why he’s my favorite human in the whole world. You’re truly something special my love."
Ayesha and Steph were all boo'd up at her "Seasoned Life" cookbook signing in New York City.
