Ayesha Curry delighted fans with a photo of her son Canon looking like his dad's double while keeping busy with his Connect six game. Fans couldn't get enough of the little boy's cuteness.


Canon Jack, son of pro basketball player Stephen Curry, looked adorable as he enjoyed playing with his giant connect six-game on a grassy patch.

His mom and cookbook author, Ayesha Curry, shared the photo on social media, flaunting her son's striking resemblance to her husband.

The pic showed the boy, dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, with his mouth curved into an infectious smile as he attempted inserting a pink disk into the standing neon blue grid board. Captioning the post, the mother-of-three wrote:

"Canon Jack and his joy."

The picture quickly garnered over a hundred thousand likes and several comments from fans eager to point out that Canon was his dad's mini-me. Others gushed about how charming the tot looked as he radiated joy.



Stephen and Ayesha's son is admittedly growing by leaps and bounds, looking more like his dad as the days went by. Even his parents are astonished by his growth spurt, earning him the nickname Viking baby.

During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the couple revealed the story behind the unlikely moniker. They explained how he kept growing faster than his siblings, despite being the smallest at birth.



The duo has also been open about some of the changes the kids have encountered in their growing phases. When Canon got his first haircut, the Currys were so excited to share the milestone with the world.

Ayesha took to Instagram to share a pic of her son rocking his new trim in style. She followed it up with a pic of the youngster hanging with his father, who had the same haircut, prompting fans to dub the boy Steve Curry's double.



As the youngest of three siblings and the only son in the family, one should expect the youngster to adopt his dad's interests. And he never disappoints. Earlier this year, Ayesha made a virtual appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

While chatting with the host, she recalled how the two-year-old took to golfing over the pandemic because he always thought his dad was a pro golfer. However, once NBA resumed activities, the lad discovered his dad's true career and wasted no time embracing basketball.

Last month, Stephen shared a picture of the toddler imitating his Baron Davis-inspired post-win celebration. The post showed the boy lifting his shirt beside his mini basketball hoop after seemingly scoring a point.

Canon never seems to take a break from giving his family a million reasons to smile and winning the world over with loads of cuteness.
