Stephen Curry Talks Special Bond He Shares With Riley

NBA MVP gets unconditional love from adorable 2-year-old daughter.

Published June 4, 2015

No matter the outcome of the NBA Finals, Stephen Curry is feeling like a winner because of the endearing relationship he has with his adorable daughter, Riley.

Speaking with reporters during a press conference Wednesday, Curry talked about the daddy-daughter bond they share.

“[She’s] always happy to see me when I get home and that kind of makes everything all right," Curry told the press, as reported by Buzzfeed. "I rarely ever have a bad day, regardless of what happens on the court. It just gives you something more than basketball to kind of play and live for. It’s pretty special. Obviously every father would say pretty much the same thing about what their daughter or son means to them and how they impact their life.”

While that's true, the too-cute 2-year-old has also captured the hearts of the country, twice going viral for her post-game press conference antics, including her impromptu rendition of Big Sean's "Blessed" while at the podium with her dad last week.

Stephen's heartwarming comments about his daughter come as his wife, Ayesha Curry, penned an op-ed piece entitled, "How to Parent When Your Kid Goes Viral," for Time magazine.

"I thought it was beautiful for him not to push his daddy duties to the bottom of the list just because all eyes were on him," Ayesha wrote about Stephen taking Riley with him to the podium.


She added: "We are also extremely proud that in spite of some criticism, Riley was able to share in that experience with her father and bring joy and laughter into the lives and homes of many all over the world."
