9 Interesting Facts about Ayesha Curry
1. At her very core, Ayesha is a Candian!
While this may come as a surprise to many devout NBA fans, the thirty-one-year-old wife of everyone’s favorite NBA player was actually raised in Canada! Well, for what it's worth, that explains her kindness and polite nature. Born on the 23rd of March in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the actress, and cooking show personality lived in Canada till she was fourteen. Once she turned fourteen, however, she moved alongside her family to the lovely, serene town of Charlotte in North Carolina. Once in the town of Charlotte, Ayesha grew up with her family, which consisted of her mom, dad, and her two brothers Chad and Jaz, as well as two sisters.
2. Stephen and Ayesha have known each other since forever!
In times such as ours, where a Tinder hookup seems a lot more convenient than investing the required time and effort into a relationship, it’s pretty rare to come across a love story as perfect as the one that Stephen and Ayesha have had! Having known each other since childhood, this iconic duo first met each other way back in a Church youth group in Charleston, North Carolina.
At the time of this first meeting, the two were only teenagers aged fifteen and fourteen years old respectively. As fate would have it, however, the pair didn’t end up dating until years later in August 2008, when Ayesha was looking to make it big in Hollywood, and Steph was visiting an awards show. Luckily enough, they ended up getting married in 2011, and will celebrate their anniversary on July 30th!

With perfect brunette waves that cascaded well beyond her shoulders, Ayesha has been the queen of rocking the brown/black hair color.
Perhaps it was because of the boredom brought on by months and months of self-imposed quarantine, Ayesha finally switched over to the other side, and dyed her hair a beautiful shade of blonde. Although it was only a temporary hair dye job, it looked so ravishing on her, and complimented her features so beautifully, that we can only hope that she goes blonde permanently!
