FATHER AND SON SELFIE
In the photo, Steph flashed a joyful smile while wearing a crispy white T-shirt and matching cap. Canon, rocking a huge black cap worn backward and a dinosaur print top, also grinned widely, showing his full mouth of teeth. The post was captioned:
"My little young man! Love this dude."
Steph's fans were inspired by his public declaration of love for his son and hailed him as a great father in the comments section. Many also wondered if Canon has a future in basketball just like his dad.
One fan commented, "Father like son," while another added, "The greatest shooter ever and the future greatest shooter ever?" A third fan wrote, "Look at Curry man so inspirational."
THE CURRY'S VIKING BABY
Canon is only two years old so his sports career is still quite far off but for now, the toddler is just living his best life and growing very fast. In fact, Steph and Ayesha have an interesting nickname for him because of his size.
The couple started calling their growing tot a Viking baby because of how quickly he grew despite being their smallest baby at birth. At 17 months, Canon could already fit his sister, Ryan's clothes. She was four years old at the time.
A FAMILY OF FIVE
Steph and Ayesha's lives were fulfilled by the birth of their son and they commemorated their family by getting matching tattoos to represent Canon and his sisters, Riley, 8, and Ryan, 5.
The couple used different meaningful images to honor each child. A unicorn for Riley who is their free-spirited child, a butterfly for Ryan, and a wolf to represent Canon.
A FAIRYTALE LOVE STORY
Steph and Ayesha's picture-perfect family is a true representation of their love. Their love story reads like a fairytale starting when they met at a church youth camp as teenagers in 2002.
The lovebirds only started dating six years later and after two years, Steph proposed at the spot where they shared their first kiss years before. On July 30, 2011, Steph and Ayesha tied the knot and began their beautiful life together.
